PINNACLE FOODS TO ACTIVATE BOILERS AT NEWLY EXPANDED PLANT
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— Pinnacle Foods Inc., which was recently acquired by Conagra Brands, will be activating the boilers at the company’s new 164,000 square-foot frozen goods warehouse between Sunday, November 25, and Tuesday, November 27. The process involves periodic loud releases of steam, which will occur at irregular intervals, for up to an hour at a time, during daylight hours throughout this time period. Residents are on notice that the sound is a normal part of “test firing” the new boilers and does not indicate any danger to the warehouse or to the public.
The company’s new 164,000 square-foot frozen goods warehouse, which is nearing completion, is an expansion of the its frozen meal manufacturing hub in Fayetteville. By locating the new storage facility at the plant, they have eliminated more than 130,000 miles of tractor-trailer traffic that would otherwise be required to move the goods from plant to warehouse. Fayetteville’s Sustainability Department states that this reduction of travel equates to approximately 21,452 gallons of fuel saved, which saves 218 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
Mayor Lioneld Jordan has praised Pinnacle for its commitment to Fayetteville and to eco-friendly operations, saying that the company “has a long history of expanding and investing in our community. This project is good for the environment and our economy. Thank you to Pinnacle for its continued investment in this great city.”
