“Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. has had the privilege of working with Tom Barnum and the talented crew at Barnum Mechanical for over 35 years. They were a valuable partner during several major expansions at our Chico, CA brewery, and have worked on a wide range of other projects over the years.  Barnum Mechanical also played a significant role in the design and construction of our North Carolina greenfield brewery, from CAD and engineering help during the design phase to mobilizing a large field crew to assist in equipment installation and process piping.

They bring a high level of knowledge and understanding of food and beverage processing equipment, sanitary process design, and are competent in complex matrix piping and valve technology. Their attention to detail, stellar workmanship and artesian approach to design and installation continues to deliver value long after they have left the jobsite.”
