Monogram Foods has started construction on a new 135,000-square-foot production facility in Creek Brook Park, Haverhill, Massachusetts. Monogram has plant and warehousing facilities in Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Virginia and Wisconsin. This is Monogram’s 3rd Massachusetts location, and will feature 109,000 square feet of multi-temperature warehouse space, plus a 26,000-square-foot sandwich assembly area. The facility is expected to be completed by mid-2022.

The facility is focused on optimizing production to meet consumer demand. Six areas--freezer, cold storage, cool dock, dry goods storage, production and offices--are configured to accommodate 300 employees. Process engineering, critical for operational efficiency, includes a state-of-the-art ammonia refrigeration system. Loading dock areas and parking have been configured to maximize a restricted site plan.  

Paradigm Properties is the owner and developer of the facility, and Dacon is overseeing the construction. This is Dacon’s second partnership with Paradigm in Haverhill. Founded in 1997 and headquartered in Boston with regional offices in Hartford, Connecticut, and Columbus, Ohio, Paradigm owns over 3 million square feet of property and provides a range of services for third-party owners and clients.
