Tip Top Breaks Ground on New Freezer

Rockmart, Georgia – On a sunny morning, company owners and local dignitaries gathered at the Tip Top Poultry food processing facility to officially break ground on a new $4.6 million freezer. The renovation and new addition will allow Tip Top to better serve its customers and respond more effectively to an ever changing set of market place demands. As capabilities and product lines have diversified, and production volume has grown, additional freezer space became a strategic necessity for the supply chain.

“Tip Top Poultry continues to be one of the City of Rockmart’s strongest customers, remaining among the top ten taxpayers and top utility users,” stated Pam Herring, the Rockmart City Clerk. “Their strong presence is such a positive asset to the community and it’s apparent through their dedication to continue to grow and be a partner to the City of Rockmart and its citizens.”

Tip Top Poultry is partnering with Griffco Design / Build, Inc. as its general contractor for the project. Griffco is a renowned firm that specializes in the design and construction of refrigerated and frozen food distribution and proecessing facilities throughout the United States.

“We are excited about the new facility; the path it provides and the positive impact on future endeavors,” commented Don Lovette, Tip Top’s senior manager for operations in Rockmart. “We will be positioned to better serve our customers, the community, and our employees.”

During the day, Tip Top’s COO, Brad Respess, made the following remarks:

“Rockmart has been a great location for our facility. The local community has been a big supporter of ours and the municipal infrastructure provides the needed resources for us to expand our operations. We are committed to running the best food production plant in the country and the investment in the facility through this project reaffirms our commitment.

“This has been a phenomenal year for the Tip Top team in Rockmart. Because of their great performance and the favor of God, we have seen increased demand for our products and services. We feel confident investing in this community because we are able to partner for long term sustainable growth. We appreciate Rockmart and look forward to more successes together in the years ahead.“
