Project Overview

This manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters for Palermo’s Pizza includes corporate offices, company store, “Palermo’s Pizzeria & Café” with adjacent outdoor courtyard, research and development facilities, and a 135,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art USDA manufacturing plant with 650-ton ammonia refrigeration plant serving spiral freezers and low-temperature distribution center. The manufacturing plant included installation of an 80-ton flour silo, three day bins, a pneumatic feed system with two blowers and miscellaneous conveyors, and food handling equipment. Miron completed all substructure, superstructure, and pre-cast erection for this project.

Inspired by the 16th century ‘Villa Le Volte’ near Siena in the region of Tuscany, the facility is located on a nine-acre site east of Miller Park as part of a new business district being developed on a former rail yard in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley. The move consolidated Palermo’s offices and plants into one building, providing a more efficient work space for its 270 employees.

In 2011, Miron completed a 115,000 SF addition to the original manufacturing facility. This project added space for two additional production lines and an expanded bakery. Throughout construction, Miron efficiently managed the schedule in order to accomodate tight lead times for equipment that was being shipped from Italy. This ensured that the spaces were available to begin accepting equipment for installation well ahead of completing the building.

In their words…

When we decided to expand our business by building our new facility, it was extremely important that we chose a firm to assist us in making our dream a reality… Miron provided us with pre-construction expertise, as well as a skilled team to manage our construction project. Before, during, and even after the project was completed, I have found Miron to be exceptionally supportive of our business needs. No matter the size, I would highly recommend Miron for your next project.” Angelo Fallucca, COO Palermo Villa, Inc.
