American Almond celebrates move to new facility
The American Almond relocation took place recently when Ms. Fliska’s role - and those of her colleagues - moved to a new state-of-the-art facility in Pennsauken, New Jersey, USA, just down the road from her home in Philadelphia.
A native of Kavala, Greece, Ms. Fliska has been on the team for six years, serving as Corporate Project and Process Engineer in the Gourmet & Specialties Division of Barry Callebaut. In a role that has been historically dominated by men, Barry Callebaut’s Management Team is proud of Ms. Fliska’s position as a leading engineer working on an important brand like American Almond. Never one to be afraid of a challenge, she was the perfect person to lead American Almond’s move.

Leading the process - from bringing new facility up and running to shutting the old one down
Ms. Fliska goes on to note that she, as head engineer, was involved from the early stages of the move discussions – from selecting and sizing out new equipment to match the quality our customers expect to managing the building layout and design, construction and building upgrades:
“This move is very exciting for the business and I’m looking forward to our team learning even more about the processes and possibilities associated with our new Pennsauken home,” Ms. Fliska said of the move. “Learning and mastering is what our industry is all about and our new home provides for both.”
