Moffitt West Expansion – Getting Started

In late June, Moffitt West officially began work on its new building addition. The Moffitt West expansion increases the total space at the Denison, TX plant almost 70%. It adds room for additional staff, increased production, and improved shipping and warehousing.

This new construction increases the current work area by 50%, with the possibility of adding an increased number of office cubicles, from places like Versare, to the office building, ensuring that all the employees have a comfortable, yet productive place to work.

Furthermore this expansion also allows for improvements to be made to the plant’s ventilation system. CoolStream adiabatic units and Apollo ventilators will be installed to naturally cool the work floor. The planned ventilation system will lower temperatures in the building, especially during the 100?+ Texas summers.

Construction will add 3,500 ft2 of offices to the front of the building as well. This new area creates more space for the ever growing management and product engineering staff. The new facilities will include a new conference room, an improved office area, a product showroom, and a break room. Once completed, the rooms will be fully furnished with office chairs and new desks. The crew will dismantle the old office space. It will then change back into work space, adding even more work area to the factory.

Similarly, the expansion will add Moffitt ventilation products to the break room as well. This includes a Firelight natural casement ventilator and eight (8) Coltlite CLT vents.

The Moffitt West expansion kicked off with trenching for new drainage in late June and steel delivery in early July. Erection officially began on July 23rd. Factory frame out was almost complete by the end of the first week. Completion of this section, and erection on the office section are next. The schedule targets late November for completion. Subsequently, the official building dedication will follow in December.
