BELOIT - TRU Aseptics is looking to grow in 2019 and beyond.
The company recently remodeled its headquarters, and to continue the transformation, an application has been filed with the City of Beloit for a new 10,000-square-foot warehouse and new parking lot, according to City of Beloit development records.
If all requests are approved, construction is expected to start in June and run until June 2020, according to the application.
In 2017, the company started on the $9.4 million headquarters expansion after acquiring property at 2924 Wyetta Drive in 2016 and updating the facility, installing new production equipment.
The plant - producing preservative free minimally processed fruit, dairy, vegetable and plant-based juice ingredients for the food and beverage industry - is now in the midst of full operations after being validated with the Food and Drug Administration in 2017.
In April, TRU Aseptics was acquired by Lyons Magnus. In the acquisition notice, Lyons said it was committed to "making significant investments" in TRU Aseptics team and facility.
Before the latest construction can begin, the company needs city approval. According to the company's website, Lyons develops and markets products to meet the needs of food service, ingredient and international clients.
Today, the Beloit Plan Commission will review a conditional use permit application from the company for the warehouse which is planned to be built on a 2.4-acre site at 1750 Branigan Road in the Milwaukee Road Overlay District.
The current property is vacant land with paved driveway through the center and is currently being farmed.
The parcel has frontage road along both Branigan Road to the east and Wyetta Drive to the south.
The application will then head before the Beloit City Council on June 3 for a vote, with city staff recommending support of the plan.
When contacted, company staff did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
