Century Contractors Partner With Tellus

January 30, 2020

Century Contractors joined the Tellus team to create their facility in Belle Glade, Florida.

Century Contractors received the opportunity to support Tellus in the development of a new packaging plant completed in the spring of 2018. Century managed and executed structural steel, equipment setting, mechanical and piping work which was crucial in creating the grassroots manufacturing plant.

Tellus is a packaging company based in Belle Glade, Florida with a passion for inspiring innovation through their dedication to sustainability. The company specializes in recycling excess sugarcane fiber from the sugar milling process and converting the material into high quality packaging and food service products such as plates, bowls and take out containers.



Century’s CEO Howard Smith commented on the partnership, “We’re thrilled to have been an asset in this exciting project. Century Contractors began as a family company set on creating an employee-oriented workspace operating through positive values. Tellus’s dedication to caring for their employees, and the planet, is perfectly in line with the integrity we strive to achieve every day.”

The Century Contractors team is proud to have collaborated with an organization so dedicated to environmental sustainability, and the plant’s opening ceremony welcomed hundreds of excited guests to witness the opening conducted by Tellus President Matt Hoffman.
