KLONDIKE CHEESE COMPANY

Production & Distribution Facility

Family-owned and operated since 1925, Klondike manufactures award-winning Feta, Muenster, Brick and Havarti cheeses in Monroe, WI using state-of-the-art equipment and traditional family recipes. Our ongoing expansion project, which included a state-of-the-art precast concrete addition with a 70,000-gallon brine tank, has allowed Klondike to quadruple production of Brick, Muenster and Havarti cheese using highly specialized automation equipment sourced from Europe. Kraemer Brothers worked closely with the new equipment installation teams to keep the project on schedule, despite the language barrier and differing work habits and procedures.

Because so many of the new systems are automated, the plant increased manufacturing efficiency without adding staff or incurring extra labor costs. The project began in March of 2017 and by May of 2018, the plant was producing cheese in its new 41,000 square foot addition.

Kraemer Brothers used a Vitrified Flooring System that best suited this application. The vitrified tiles are known for high-durability, aesthetic, non-absorbent, antimicrobial, chemically-resistant qualities as well as being easy to clean.
