Frick’s Quality Meats tapped ESI Group USA, Hartland, Wis., to expand its Washington, Mo., headquarters manufacturing facility.

Phase 1 construction consists of a ready-to-eat process expansion, and Phase 2 is a finished goods cooler. Both phases will be completed next summer.

“We’re pleased to partner with Frick’s Quality Meats to expand their presence in serving some of the fastest-growing categories in the grocery industry,” says Brad Barke, president of ESI. “Together, our project team’s expertise and commitment will be key contributors in making this a successful project.”
