Production Plant Upgrade Contractor Partners with You

Efficient manufacturing plants must continually upgrade production facilities in order to meet strict manufacturing guidelines and to produce newly developed product lines. This involves comprehensive planning and continuous partnering with a factory infrastructure contractor who knows your plant and production issues.

Successful production plant upgrades require building modifications, machinery installations, and utility upgrades that are made to accommodate both current and future needs. By creating a solid working relationship with your contractor, you can plan for plant modifications without re-creating the knowledge and learning curve each time while, at the same time, gain valuable consulting insight early in each project.

You will also be able to control existing production interruptions and maintain structural integrity of existing facilities including long-term viability of utility lines to meet new production requirements. Your response time to production capacity and product demand fluctuations will also improve with the established contractor’s ability to quickly implement your production system, material handling and warehousing modifications.

With extensive experience, Storee can serve your upgrade needs

Storee has been a long-term partner with many large manufacturers, consistently managing all of their upgrade needs.

By providing key insight at the project evaluation stage, we assist with the conceptual and practical aspects of the project and can significantly reduce project costs, overruns, changes, delays and overall project frustration with such as things as the following:

  • Confirm that the new production lines will fit in the existing space and have adequate service access
  • Suggest and plan any building modifications necessary for installation of the production equipment in the existing area
  • Review and reduce any impact to nearby production or warehouse areas both during the construction (dust/product contamination) and after installation (access routes, reduction in space)
  • Review the documented planned production process and its integration to the overall facility operations for suitability, feasibility, and any best practice modifications or value-added solutions
  • Review and manage details of any potential roadblocks to the installation including structural constraints (walls, floors, structural columns), existing electrical and mechanical installations, existing facility utilities (water, sewer, electrical), and equipment access to the installation area for construction and installation of new production equipment

As a seasoned factory infrastructure contractor, we have extensive experience over a wide variety of manufacturing processes including food processing plants, machining, remanufacturing, injection molding plastics, rotomold plastics, material handling, steel fabrication, electric motor assembly, and battery manufacturing. Storee’s manufacturing construction experience is continually expanding through meeting the needs of the clients we serve. Using our solution-based approach to every project challenge, Storee reviews every project detail and offers alternative methods or installations that will improve overall manufacturing capacity and facility usage.
