52 Top Design Build Companies For Food & Beverage

Food Design Build Companies Small

As you may know, the majority of growth in the industrial electrical industry comes from new construction. So, we set out to find the best design build companies in the US.

However, we didn’t just want to find any old list. Our passion revolves around critical electrical products such as pin and sleeve devices and motor disconnect switches. With that in mind, we decided to narrow in on the Food & Beverage industry where a lot of these products are used.

At first, we wondered if this list already existed. However, after a lengthy search, we were unable to find one. That led us to compile a list of 52 design build companies that are the cream of the crop.

Once we had our list, we decided to go a step further. We found the contact information for each one of these design build companies and listed them below. This should be a holy grail for anybody involved in electrical construction management. If you aren’t considering one of these companies, you should reconsider.

The Details: What You Need to Know

  • This list is in reverse alphabetical order
  • These firms are not ranked. That is another exercise altogether
  • This list includes mostly regional and national design build companies for food and beverage plants
  • Nobody paid to be on this list
  • We are not affiliated with any of these companies
  • If the company had no website, they weren’t considered. We know some folks are up to date on technology, but sadly they can’t make this list

The Map: Where These Companies Are Based

food design companies large map

As the map shows, most of the top food design build companies are based out of the Midwest and Southeast. However, there was still a good concentration in areas like the Northeast and West. Admittedly, we were surprised at how concentrated this was for the Midwest and there could certainly be some bias on our side. Please write us a comment if you see something from your area not represented on the map and we’ll add it!
