New baking production facility will improve efficiency and increase production
Cleveland, OH — Florida Bread (www.bread.com.tw/), a 67-year-old bakery in Taipei, Taiwan, is growing rapidly and needs a new production facility that consolidates operations, improves efficiency and increases production.
Florida Bread has engaged the United States’ leading bakery design-builder, The Austin Company (www.theaustin.com), to provide master planning services for the new facility design and process equipment layout. Austin’s team visited Taipei over the summer to gain an understanding of existing operations and the site for the new facility.
The new production facility will total 5,000 square-meters (approximately 54,000 SF) once complete.
