Jones Dairy Farm is a 6th generation family owned and operated company located in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. For more than 130 years, Jones has been using real, natural ingredients, original recipes, and time-honored traditions to create unique and timeless products. Jones is known for producing all-natural sausage, naturally smoked hams, and dry-aged bacon products, all free of artificial preservatives, fillers, and MSG.
In order to increase production capabilities, Jones Dairy Farm underwent an expansion and renovation of the former McCain Foods Inc. plant. This included a 68,183 sq-ft. addition to the existing processing plant, resulting in a 306,263 sq-ft. total facility. The expansion consisted of a new process area, refrigerated truck dock, employee area mezzanine, and parking and site improvements.
Delta T Construction was chosen as the cold storage contractor for this expansion by ESI Group USA. They chose to use Jamison Cold Storage and Jamison BMP High Speed Fabric Rollup doors in their construction.

"This was an area of harsh chemical washdown and I am very pleased that we were able to supply the complete door package at the corrosive-resistant degree Jones Dairy Farm requested," says Jamison's Shawn Tassie. "It is quite a statement having all doors in stainless steel. The non-corrosive stainless hardware is extremely heavy-duty. Jamison’s Dynamicroll BMP doors included stainless steel side frames and hood with an FDA approved fabric material. Their simple design makes them easy to operate and maintain, and are easily cleaned. The doors are not just aesthetically pleasing, but provide great functionality in an area of harsh chemical washdown."
