Builder contracted for A-B malting plant

Anheuser-Busch, Inc., has again contracted the Milwaukee-based design and construction firm, Klug & Smith, for the construction of the brewery's Idaho Falls, ID, malt plant.

Klug & Smith has been involved in the past with other A-B construction projects, including the construction of the Budweiser Pavillion, which is the music bandshell at the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds in Milwaukee. In addition, the firm was involved in the brewery's malt plant expansions in Moorhead, MN, and Manitowoc, WI.

"Klug & Smith is among the best in design and construction of malt processing plants," said Al Litteken, vice president of engineering, Anheuser-Busch. "Their fine work on our previous projects provided good reason to contract them again for our Idaho Falls facility."

The Idaho Falls plant has been under construction for over a year. The grain storage portion of the building is currently in operation, and has a 3.5-million bushel capacity. The malt processing portion will become fully operational in July, 1991. When fully operational, the entire plant will have the capacity to process eight million bushels of barley into malt each year.
