Prestage Farms

Extensive Custom Services for Turkey Processor.

Our team provided process design and equipment services for Prestage Farms’ greenfield turkey processing plant in Camden, SC. Our scope for the 295,000 s.f. facility included design, procurement, and installation of the plant’s process piping, Clean-in-Place (CIP) ozone skid system, and vacuum line systems and chillers.

Award-Winning Processing Facility


Prestage Farms is a family-owned business that creates quality pork and turkey products. The company and its affiliates process 1.5 billion pounds of meat annually, employ nearly 3,000 associates, and contract with over 450 farm families.


For this greenfield project, Prestage Farms selected Gray to design and build a state-of-the-art turkey processing facility. AD Process Equipment supported the project with complete design, procurement, and installation for the plant’s process piping and vacuum line systems and chillers. These services ensured the safe, sanitary conveyance of a wide variety of materials vital to the customer’s processes:

  • Heat pump hot water
  • Low-pressure hot water
  • Steam
  • Compressed air
  • Natural gas
  • Sanitation chemicals


To ensure stringent sanitation standards, ADPE provided a Clean-in-Place (CIP) ozone skid system. The CIP skid functions across critical plant processes using a liquid application to treat surfaces above and below conveyors as well as ambient O2 molecules to treat the water supply.


In addition to process design and equipment procurement and installation, ADPE has continued to provide startup support and system commissioning for the customer’s innovative turkey processing operation.


The project was awarded a Manufacturing Innovation Award by ProFood World, a leading food & beverage manufacturing publication. Learn more about the story behind the project here.
