Turnkey Project Execution Offers Pet Food Processors Big-Picture Advantages

Recently, Tyler Cundiff, president of Gray’s Food & Beverage group, spoke with Pet Food Processing about the growing needs of modern pet food processors and how turnkey services from a single expert provider can deliver a winning advantage.

The article in Pet Food Processing’s digital magazine quoted Cundiff and other industry experts as they explained the advantages of end-to-end solutions for helping pet food processors build and operate facilities that offer greater production capacity, process efficiency, and food safety/quality.


“‘Turnkey’ can mean a lot of different things to different people in this industry, and we recognize it’s very important to identify key project priorities with our customers before we can identify the most flexible solution and what version of turnkey is most appropriate.” 


For a company with Gray’s robust service offerings, this can vary from the manufacturing and testing of custom process equipment to a holistic, integrated, and flexible model to deliver complete project services. Gray has pioneered just such a model in EPMC delivery, which encompasses engineering, procurement, manufacturing, and construction services.

"The value [of EPMC delivery] lies in the cohesiveness of the project team. When you have professionals from a wide variety of disciplines all working on their fourth or fifth project together, the advantages are apparent."
Tyler Cundiff, President, Integrated Process Group, Gray, Inc.

The combination of Gray’s core design-build experience and specialty engineering and equipment manufacturing expertise results in a distinctive range of capabilities that positions Gray to meet any pet food processor’s unique needs. If an operation requires a custom skid system, Gray can design, fabricate, assemble, test, and install to the customer’s specifications. If the processor requires total project services for the commissioning of a new greenfield facility and process design, Gray’s teams offer a wealth of experience executing large-scale projects with extensive scopes of work.


In both cases, Gray delivers turnkey services that provide expert work, streamlined execution, and dynamic results. In that regard, our “turnkey” services are boundless—just like our customers’ potential.
