Raw material is unloaded, sorted, and fed into the pressing area located over a 15’ deep pit the length of the building. CDG along with its structural partner, delivered a flexible structural system involving modular piers and floor plates to allow for any future pressing equipment changes without modifying the facility structure. Material then passes to Production & Assembly areas which are open to staging areas for finished product adjacent to the outgoing docks. A centrally located three-level Mezzanine contains process support areas as well as process-mechanical equipment and electrical equipment.
Kemmerich’s North American headquarters are part of the facility as well, encompassing a 12,000 square foot Office area at the front of the facility. This wing is divided into manufacturing support (including locker rooms, a Quality lab, and cafeteria) adjacent to the production and an open office area facing the exterior fronting a full glass wall. Private offices are located around the perimeter of the open office area with conference rooms on each end of the building. A public entry and lobby is located on one side of the Office while an employee entry is located on the other side separating the pedestrian flow into the facility.
