Perdue Innovation Center
Perdue Farms certainly doesn’t put new products on the market without testing them first. The company hired Gillis Gilkerson for the addition and interior renovations of the Perdue Innovation Center test kitchen at 2110 Industrial Parkway in Salisbury, Maryland.
The 2,400 square foot project in Salisbury Industrial Park included an expansion for additional storage space, a revamped kitchen with new appliances, cabinets and a new lighting system that changes color and intensity for work and training purposes. The center’s expansion included the addition of a dry storage area and new walk-in freezer and cooler. Additionally, a new display window gives retail clients the opportunity to see how products could be displayed in their stores.
“We’re extremely pleased with the new retail test kitchen and training room at our Innovation Center in Salisbury, and we are proud to have partnered with local contractors to complete the renovations,” said Phil Nichols, Senior Process Engineer for Perdue.

What Our Clients Say
“Gillis Gilkerson has been extremely accommodating to work with. As an out-of-town developer we face the challenge not knowing how things work in a different market. Dwight Miller has been forth coming with the information needed and is always accessible. We made some demands throughout the project thus far that he has continuously met to our standards. It is great to work with a general contractor that is always available and makes our job as developers easier.”
~ Jerry Passaro,
Jamestown Development Group.
“The Gillis Gilkerson team should be commended for attention to detail and determination to produce a job done right. Whenever there was a question of the requirements, it was approached reasonably, rationally and resolved quickly.”
~ W. Frank Brady,
“For a design/build project it is unusual for the initial cost estimates and timing to be maintained and in this case the project was completed on time and the costs were held to the contract level. In going into a design/build project like this, one always wonders if the right decision was made on the contractor selected. Now that the project has been completed, I can say that I know we made the right decision with Gillis Gilkerson.”
~ Norman S. Grubb,
Assistant to the President,
“Only in knowing of the years of frustration and disappointment in our futile attempts at relocation, expansion and renovation can one understand my elation in seeing a long sought out dream brought to fruition by the professional and caring team at Gillis Gilkerson.”
“Gillis Gilkerson not only wanted our project but also performed it to our exact specifications within our extremely tight time frame – 20 working days! If asked again, I would build with Gillis Gilkerson – in a heartbeat!”
~ Robert F. Morris,
Delmarva Gymnastics Academy Inc.,
“Palmer and Dwight personally came to see me to talk about the development. I am very comfortable working with Dwight and know that Gillis Gilkerson has a reputation for getting things done and getting them done on time.”
