MK Metallfolien, GmbH out of Germany contracted with Context Design Group to design, project manage, and oversee the installation on their first US Steel Rolling-mill & Slitting Line Operation. Context Design Group was responsible for finding an existing facility to purchase which would accommodate their long term goals and objectives for the US Market. Context Design Group worked with MK Metallfolien to develop a major renovation program for the existing building.
Context Design Group developed an optimum layout to house their rolling mill, slitter line and staging space for raw materials, WIP and finish goods. The equipment was being manufactured for the German Market and was shifted to the US due to strength of market conditions. Because of the specifics machine there were particular concerns with the elaborate manufacturing processes and minimal tolerances required to support the machine. Because of these, every dimension of the new concrete floor/foundation is critical to the success of the machine installation and product quality. The two lines incorporate approximately 650 and 300 cubic yards of concrete for the rolling mill and slitter foundations respectively.
