Stellar will design and construct a meat processing facility for Swift Prepared Foods, a subsidiary of JBS USA. The estimated $200 million Italian meats and charcuterie plant will be located in Columbia, Mo.

The 325,000 ft2 dry meat packing facility, the company’s first in the United States, will produce cured meats including salami, pepperoni, prosciutto and pancetta. It will include product manufacturing, automated product handling via robotics and automated guided vehicles (AGVs), slicing, packaging and palletizing.

In addition to design and construction, Stellar’s scope of work includes project management, utility and mechanical, refrigeration and process engineering services. Construction is estimated to be complete by the fourth quarter of 2022.
