ROCKMART, GA – Company owners and local dignitaries recently gathered at the Tip Top Poultry Inc. food-processing facility to break ground on its new $4.6 million freezer. The renovation and new addition will allow Tip Top to better serve its customers and respond more effectively to an ever changing set of marketplace demands, the company said.

As capabilities and product lines have diversified, and production volume has grown, additional freezer space became a strategic necessity for the supply chain.

Tip Top Poultry is partnering with Griffco Design / Build Inc. as its general contractor for the project. Griffco specializes in the design and construction of refrigerated and frozen food distribution and processing facilities throughout the United States.

“We are excited about the new facility; the path it provides and the positive impact on future endeavors,” commented Don Lovette, Tip Top’s senior manager for operations in Rockmart. “We will be positioned to better serve our customers, the community and our employees.”

“Rockmart has been a great location for our facility,” said Brad Respess, Tip Top’s COO. “The local community has been a big supporter of ours and the municipal infrastructure provides the needed resources for us to expand our operations. We are committed to running the best food production plant in the country and the investment in the facility through this project reaffirms our commitment.”
