The new manufacturing building and its adjacent 640 square foot equipment building are steel framed with insulated metal wall panels and metal roof. The new Creform Manufacturing Plant required versatility in storage and expandability to adjust to the advancements in today’s technology. In fact, the key performers in the building’s daily function are two new highly technological production machines extending 180 feet in length, producing a coated pipe product at the rate of 100 feet per minute. Ease and efficiency of movement throughout the manufacturing process from product production to assembly, packaging, short-term storage, and final shipping were key to the overall building design. A band of clerestory windows caps the manufacturing building providing an even wash of natural light throughout the interior thereby enhancing the work environment for Textube employees and aiding in production activity. A 3,000 lb. capacity bridge crane operates over 2/3 of the building width and travels the entire length providing versatile access for both material and shipment.
