The Stellar Group (Jacksonville, FL) has completed construction on a new 114,000-sq-ft expansion for Lundy Packaging Company and renovated 40,000 sq ft at their existing facility in North Carolina. By updating and expanding their existing building, Lundy's can now meet increasing demands in the packaging of their pork products. Stellar provided complete design/build services, which included architecture, engineering, construction, mechanical contracting and refrigeration.

The expansion and renovation includes an updated ammonia refrigeration system to support coolers, freezers and blast chillers that maintains temperatures from –10 degrees F to 40 degrees. The updated ammonia refrigeration system consists of new compressors, condensers and evaporators. In addition, a Quick Chill unit was upgraded and the Chill Tunnel expanded to increase product capacity and improve overall efficiency.
