Mother Parkers

*Updated from 2005*

Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee Inc. is a leading Canadian owned and operated producer of quality tea and coffee products in the North American marketplace.  In June, 2001 it started up a $25-million, 100,000-sq.-ft. Greenfield plant at Fort Worth, Texas. This highly-automated plant had a starting capacity to roast, grind, blend and package private-label coffees at a rate of 20 million lbs. per year, since expanded to over 130 million lbs. per year, and it currently manufactures more than 600 SKUs. Three years after startup, it added a new packaging line to expand production of private labeled cans of coffee.  The additional line consisted of used equipment which needed to be retrofitted with controls in order to be updated. This project has since grown from one production line within the facility, to encompass the monitoring system for every production line.
