Expansion of Automobile Assembly and Weld Shop


This project was an expansion to the existing automobile assembly plant in Ohio. The project was a fast track project where the completion date was 7 months from notice to proceed.

Sauer developed a detailed schedule for piping and equipment installation which incorporated the needs of plant operations. The plant required the phasing in of the new facility in order to utilize potions of the new building prior to overall completion.

Sauer performed off site fabrication and pre-assembly to insure the schedule could be met.
