Mid-Atlantic Baking, a bakery producing a variety of bread products, including hamburger rolls and breadsticks, needed to expand its existing facility so bread could be frozen on site and stored prior to distribution. The goal was to provide a fresher, higher quality product to consumers. A M King implemented measures allowing Mid-Atlantic Baking to continue its operations during the multi-faceted construction project. The additional space was completed by the promised deadline — with construction taking only six months. Further, the project delivered long-term cost savings to the company.
