2015 ABC of Iowa Award of Excellence - Saginaw, TX

10/30/15

Todd & Sargent received an ABC of Iowa Award of Excellence in Construction eagle for the Horizon Milling/Ardent Mills flour mill expansion project in Saginaw, TX.  This is the top award in it's category.  ABC is an organization that promotes and defends the merit shop philosophy, which encourages open competition and a free-enterprise approach to construction.  T&S was one of the original members of ABC of Iowa in the 1970s.
In May, 2014, ConAgra Mills and Horizon Milling, a Cargill-CHS joint venture combined to form Ardent Mills.  Ardent Mills includes 40 flour mills, three bakery mix facilities, and a specialty bakery, located in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico with headquarters in Denver, CO.
This renovation included the replacement of two existing hard wheat milling units with two new, state-of-the-art units, which increased milling efficiencies and capabilities.  It also invoived demolition, moving existing facilities on the site, addition of new cleaning house equipment, and a new process building.  The project greatly increased flour, temper, and wheat midds storage for Ardent Mills.  This mill helps serve the Dallas-Fort Worth area, a rapidly growing market in the Southwest.
A big thank you to our office and field staff for their hard work on this project!
