Manufacturing plant expansion
Tenneplas Manufacturing, a division of Windsor Mold USA, Inc., manufactures exterior moldings, grille opening reinforcements, wheel covers, cowl vents, and splash shields for the automobile industry.
The 80,000-square-foot expansion project consisted of a pre-engineered metal building with standing seam roof and eight-foot high masonry block walls. Above the manufacturing floor, electrical specifications called for high bay LED light fixtures. Installed process piping included a chill water system, air rotation units, compressors, air loops, and a compressed air receiver tank. Outside, special storm piping was installed for the heavy-duty asphalt yard paving.
Brindley Construction has completed several projects for Tenneplas in past years, including a previous plant addition, a materials storage addition on the back of the main facility and a separate shipping container storage building complete with an isolated fire suppression system.
Business has continued to grow and by 2017, Brindley Construction was again called upon to build another 30,000-square-foot addition. Completed in the spring of 2018, this addition extended the previous facility and allowed for additional injection molding machines.
“We’ve been working with Brindley for about 14 years. We continue to go back to them because of their workmanship and the fact that they are a family-run company like ourselves. It’s been a pleasure doing business with them all these years.” - Scott Rowdon, Plant Manager
