The Malvern facility has room for four additional HPP machines. At least 51 workers will be employed at the facility to start. The facility, which is just outside of Philadelphia near four major interstates, brings the company's HPP footprint to four. Universal Pasteurization operates HPP toll processing facilities in Nebraska, Georgia and Texas.
“Customers value our superior service and multi-facility network,” said Melanie Galloway, CEO. “Their continued support and direction drove our decision to expand in the Northeast. This new, first class facility will have over 9,000 slots of refrigerated space as well as two state of the art 525L HPP machines and the capacity to add up to 4 additional machines.”
Universal Pasteurization is the largest provider of HPP tolling services in the United States with locations in Lincoln, Neb; Villa Rica, Ga; Coppell, Texas and Malvern, Pa. The company also is a leading independent provider of cold storage and other value-added services to food manufacturers.
