Founded in 1846 in Charlestown, MA, by Harvey Perley Hood, the HP Hood company has extended its New England roots, and today is a national company distributing dairy products throughout the United States. HP Hood has 16 manufacturing plants throughout the country and maintains its own research and development operation.

For more than 20 years, Hood has been committed to ultra-hightemperature (UHT) processing and is a leader in the production of UHT dairy products. It has also focused on extended-shelf-life (ESL) beverages using innovative UHT and ESL manufacturing and packaging technologies. 

Hood operates an ESL processing facility in Oneida, New York, that manufactures cream, milk, and non-dairy and soy products. VIP Structures has designed and built two additions to this facility—a 32,000 SF refrigerated warehouse and a 15,000 SF dry warehouse addition. Other VIP projects for Hood include a connective link addition, chemical storage area, shipping dock, silo foundations, and milk processing area renovations.
