Plant Relocation services utilize the full extent of Guy M. Turner, Inc’s. specialized “Turnkey” capabilities. We can completely match-mark, disconnect and dismantle your present plant and transport it “cross country”! At the new location we will do any building work or modifications needed, offload and install the machinery, reconnect all electrical, piping and instrumentation, and connect all primary utilities. When we’re done all you have to do is “turn the key” and you are up and running!
We have the ability to do any building construction and/or modifications required to accommodate the machinery relocation, along with the specialty foundations that are typically needed. Need a “penthouse” in a roof area for a higher piece of equipment, no problem. Have a heavy press that needs a foundation, we’ll do that. Not enough power in the area where the new line is going, we can extend you existing utility or do a new service.
Once we relocate the equipment we can do all the electrical and mechanical utility work necessary to support the new installation so that all requirements are taken care of. We help “dot the i’s and cross the t’s” utilizing our years of experience, giving you the benefit of the thousands of plant relocation projects we have done.
Our crews are multi-craft, so instead of having four or five craft groups, i.e. riggers to move the machines, electricians for the wiring, pipe fitters for the piping, etc., we can combine the people needed to reduce the crew size, and ultimately the cost. Our crews work together and help each other, where they can move the equipment, take care of the piping and wiring, and get the job done quicker than having to bring in several separate contractors on individual time frames that typically extends the overall plant relocation schedule and has inherent coordination challenges.
We help organize and plan the entire process, simplifying your project. We offer a single point of contact via this service, and we coordinate all the required trades that are needed to insure a swift and successful completion. Time spent waiting for individual responses from multiple contractors is eliminated.
We offer these Plant Relocation services through our main office in Greensboro, NC or our office in Rock Hill, SC. Both locations have a complete staff of project managers and equipment installation specialists to handle your project. We also offer warehouse space at these locations to help with the logistics of equipment installation or plant relocation when there isn’t quite enough room available at your facility. You might have a new piece of machinery arrive when you’re not quite ready to install it, or have several truck loads from a relocation that don’t have “any where to go” until later in the project; either way we can help solve that problem safely and quickly. Storage can be arranged for a few days, weeks, or longer as necessary.
We have used this approach successfully over the years for plant relocation projects. A brief list of these projects and types are:
- Textile/automotive carpets where we have relocated entire non-woven fabric lines from the Bale Openers through the Needle Looms to the final product Winders. Due to the weight of the looms (40 tons) new foundations were required. Additional power for the equipment (1200 amp service) was needed to support the operations.
- Metal stamping operations that incorporate De-coiler, Straightener, Stamping Press, Shear and Stacker. Fully assembled press weight of over 1 million pounds required a new and intricate foundation.
- Blown Film Lines requiring the design and fabrication of all new support steel for the 5 story equipment tower.
- Chemical production facility where a new process system was needed at the upper elevations and the roof had to be raised (without affecting production around a water sensitive product!).
- Cardboard box line relocation where we decreased the required manpower by 30% utilizing our multi-craft approach.
