Shambaugh has provided Design-Build services for many award-winning dairy processing plants. On multiple occasions, facilities designed by Shambaugh have won US Dairy Plant of the Year, including in 2015, when Kroger Mountain View Foods was selected for the award thanks to the plant’s advanced material handling technology.
