Food & Beverage

The future of food starts here.


Gray is a fully integrated service provider deeply rooted in engineering, design, construction, as well as controls and automation services. As a family-owned company, we serve both domestic and international customers across our core markets: Food & Beverage, Manufacturing, Automotive, Distribution, Mission Critical, and Commercial.


In recent years, we have increased our service offerings in the Food & Beverage market with the addition of InLine Engineers for trusted engineering expertise in complete end-to-end process and packaging line functionality, Spec Engineering for prefabrication of various process equipment assemblies and enhanced process equipment component engineering, and also formed Gray Solutions for complete digital solutions.

"As we built a relationship with Gray what’s been evident to us is, they live their vision and values in every situation. So we see them interacting with other companies and other customers, we see their involvement in the community, and I think that further solidifies that we made a great decision and that we have a partner that we can work with into the future."
Frank Burdzy, Former President and CEO

Champion Petfoods

Our customers rely on Gray to equip them with the most advanced solutions available. Like bringing virtual reality (VR) into the design-build process so you can see the future of your facility. Implementing SmartVent technology as a safer way to combat dust. Designing, installing, and commissioning unloading systems with zero operator intervention. Or using the full breadth of our engineering expertise to build the longest and fastest Snap Chill freezer in the world. There’s no universal blueprint for our facilities. That’s why we tailor every project to your needs.


From process and packaging to food safety, automation and more, our solutions help customers increase production, solve for labor shortages, mitigate costs, and ensure FSMA compliance.
