Neenah-based Miron Construction will partner with Power Engineers to design and build an infant formula plant in Monroe for Amlat, a Chinese-owned company headquartered in Madison.
To start in June at a site in the Monroe Business and Industrial Park in Green County, the 60,000-square-foot greenfield construction will consist of a precast dryer tower, a wet processing area, a small warehouse and office space, according to a news release. Powdered infant formula made at the plant will be exported to meet growing demand for formula in China.
Ranked by Engineering News Record among the top 100 general contractors in the U.S., Miron Construction reported revenues of $685 million in 2013 and has regional offices in Madison, Wausau and Milwaukee in Wisconsin, plus Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Power Engineers is a global engineering firm based in Hailey, Idaho, with Wisconsin offices in Green Bay, Plover and Brookfield.
The cost of the new facility has yet to be released by the company.
