McCain Foods USA Inc. Expansion Project
Project: McCain Foods USA Inc.
Location: Othello, Washington
McCain Foods USA Inc., a division of McCain Foods Limited, the world’s largest producer of frozen French fries is expanding its North American production capacity with a $300 million investment in its Othello, Wash., potato processing facility.
This expansion was aimed at adding another processing line to its domestic production capabilities, generating an anticipated 180 new jobs to the community and reducing the facility’s carbon footprint while doubling its production.
ASC Steel Deck products were chosen for the 170,000 square-foot expansion and included our:
- 36” Steel Roof Deck Panels – 36” net coverage roof deck with interlocking side laps for DeltaGrip®, top seam weld, or button punch connections.
- Composite Floor Deck – Hi Form® – 36″ net coverage composite floor deck.
- Composite Floor Deck – Hi Form® Cellular – 36″ net coverage cellular composite floor deck with flat pan underside.
“This investment signals confidence in Washington, its potato growing community and its skilled workforce availability,” said Jeff, President, North America. “It quickly follows other McCain capacity investments, helping to meet the continued increasing demand for McCain products and builds toward a strong, sustainable future in manufacturing and agriculture.”
This added capacity will require an approximately 11,000 additional acres, sourced from local potato growers in the region, and follows a similar high-capacity expansion in Burley, Idaho to service the U.S. and global markets. Construction is anticipated to end in early 2021.
