Stellar has been awarded a design-build construction project for global meat snacks company Jack Link’s Protein Snacks.

The project, which is scheduled for completion in June 2023, will add warehouse capacity to Jack Link’s existing distribution facility in Underwood, Iowa. It also includes an automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS), which will improve both capacity and efficiency at the Underwood location. Stellar will be responsible for planning, pre-construction, construction management and building envelope, as well as architectural, structural, mechanical, civil, electrical and plumbing design.

“As Jack Link’s first AS/RS facility, this expansion will allow the company to meet increasing demand from their customers,” said Stellar’s Thomas Ansell. This is the third AS/RS project Stellar currently has underway.
