Food & Beverage

The Food and Beverage industry requires an industrial contractor who understands the critical role in the execution required for a successful project. Maintaining product purity is essential for all Installations, Modifications, Service and Repairs, and Maintenance Work. Equally important is the ability to provide prompt and effective emergency response for all process cooling, and cold storage emergencies. In 1986 Scheck Industries was awarded its first food project and ever since has been a recognized leader in providing a full range of piping systems that satisfy the special requirements of ultra-clean projects, and industrial refrigeration applications. We can also provide ongoing maintenance with our large workforce of skilled craftsmen and project managers who have countless years of experience in this field. You will find that our employees take great pride in the quality of their work, and are the main reason we enjoy stable, long-term relationships with some of the most prominent names in the industry.
