SPX wins $19M contract to install cheese plant in Chile

Charlotte-based manufacturer SPX Corp. said it has been awarded a more than $19 million contract to design and install a cheese plant for Chilean dairy company Colun.

The new facility is being built in La Union in southern Chile for the Cooperativa Agricola y Lechera de La Union Limitada, or Colun.

The Colun cooperative includes 750 farmers and 1,300 employees who collect more than 1.2 million liters of milk per day and produce 240 dairy products for consumers in Chile and other countries.

Design and engineering of the plant has already begun at SPX’s engineering center in Silkeborg, Denmark, with construction to begin in mid-2011 and plant completion expected in the summer of 2012.
