Sanderson Farms Inc. opted for precast concrete for key structures at two new poultry processing plants. Sanderson’s Palestine, Texas, and St. Pauls, N.C.-based facilities will include processing operations and waste water treatment facilities in precast concrete from Tindall Corp., Spartanburg, S.C.

The insulated architectural wall panels provide an insulated, energy-efficient thermal building envelope for environments ranging from refrigerated to ambient. The interior smooth surfaces are necessary in certain processing areas where clean design features support food safety and hygiene that are critical to the overall facility operations and good manufacturing practices.
