Quaker Oats Cereal Processing Facility

Cedar Rapids, IA

The Weitz Company has a 10-plus year, long-term relationship with Quaker Oats, completing construction and maintenance in the food processing environment. We completed installation of a new conveyance, storage and screening system for the Captain Crunch production line and worked on a new, automated, oat hull load out and scale facility that was completed in less than two months. This project involved demolition of an existing rail load out facility, construction of a new truck facility and installation of all equipment.

“We would like to compliment (Weitz) on completing the construction of our new Oat Hull Load Out Facility at the Cedar Rapids Plant ahead of the aggressive, scheduled deadline. (It's) staff consistently made extra efforts to assist us in beating our projected start-up curve by several weeks.”
