Mazomanie, Wis. – Wick Buildings celebrated their 70,000th building project in Oneida, Ill., on Friday, September 27. This landmark building was constructed for Pork Lane Farms which is located just north of Galesburg. The agricultural facility was designed with both a cold storage area for farm equipment and machinery, and a lined and insulated workshop for equipment maintenance and animal treatments.
“Our local builder in the area, Phil Britt of Galesburg, came to us with a second building project at Pork Lane Farms in the past few years,” said Tom Wick, President and General Manager for Wick Buildings, LLC. “Steve and Brenda England are great customers to build for and it was really exciting to learn it was our 70,000th building.”
Pork Lane Farms is a 4th generation family farm that includes 1,600 acres of cropland. Operations include row and hay crops, farrow to finish hogs, and small cow/calf herd and finishing feedlots. Their hard work and dedication to Illinois agriculture recently was rewarded when they won the Grand Champion Steer at the 2013 Illinois State Fair.
In continuous operations since 1954 and with more than 70,000 buildings completed, Wick Buildings provides post-frame structures for agricultural, dairy, equine, residential storage, municipal, commercial and light industrial markets. Wick Buildings are sold by independent builders, and built by independent builders and Wick crews who live and work in their local communities.
