Vantec Inc.

Plastic Injection Molding Plant

In February 2004, Vantec returned to us for design of manufacturing and warehouse expansions to their existing plastic injection molding facility.  Bid mid September the new machine hall was substantially complete and several new machines were in place and in operation.  We completed the design of the original facility for up to 500 ton injection machines.  The new machine hall houses larger equipment, 700 ton to 2800 ton machines, which are founded on a heavy industrial slab.  25 ton and 30 ton bridge cranes run the length of the machine hall to move molds to the equipment.  Three new raw material storage silos feed the current equipment and foundations were installed for up to three future silos.  Completed in November 2004, the facility is just over 130,000 sf.
