Flour Mill

Ag Com Inc., a family-owned agri-business in south central Pennsylvania needed to expand their flour milling operation due to increased demand for their flour. Their existing mill dated back five generations in the family and was last updated in the 1920s. Ag Com knew the only solution to keep up with customer demand for their flour was to build a new mill.

Project Background

Ag Com ultimately selected Bratney for the project being a "one stop shop" for the process design, milling equipment, construction and millwright services required to deliver the facility in turn-key fashion - allowing them to continue operating their existing flour mill, soybean processing plant and seed business during construction of the new project.

The new mill produces 2,500 cwt/day and included a forward-thinking layout to easily accommodate future expansion to 5,000 cwt/day. It’s sanitary design leaves prospective customers highly confident in the quality and cleanliness of their flour.

At the time of construction, the new will was the first in the United States to take advantage of Omas’ energy saving Leonardo roll stands. Omas’ patented Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) provided game changing energy savings for Ag Com, allowing them to do the project within the very limited electrical supply to their site.
