How A Plant Relocation Works

Plant relocation is a massive investment and operation, and often companies don’t take the time to ensure a smooth transition. In addition, they attempt relocations without the proper equipment or staff and don’t complete the relocation on time. Even worse, equipment may even be damaged when the equipment arrives, which can cost even more time and money. In this article, we’ll discuss what goes into a successful plant relocation and how we conduct our relocations. 

Planning, Planning, Planning 

If you think your everyday activities take a great deal of planning, try to imagine moving an entire plant. Planning is absolutely crucial—more important than any other aspect of the plant relocation, in fact. We do not recommend that you attempt your plant relocation by yourself. While you may be a whiz at plant operations, we are experts at moving your plant anywhere you need to move it. We account for every factor and scenario before we even begin to breakdown your equipment. Not only can we take apart and transport your equipment, but we can also put together and even train your staff on the equipment when we reassemble it! 

Efficiency and Safety Are Key

Efficiency and safety are the two most important factors in a plant relocation. The faster the new plant can be up and running, the faster your operations can get started again. However, speed without safety can beget damaged machinery and dangerous situations for workers. We take every precaution to make sure your equipment arrives in the same condition we received it in, so your employees will have no problem when they start working again.
