Expanded facility helps manufacturer meet growing industry demands

Every Challenge Has a Backstory

A leading international manufacturer of polyethylene terephthalate, or PET, resin chips looked to expand its North Carolina based manufacturing facility. The goal of the expansion project was to incorporate a new process that would increase its production of PET chip to better meet growing demands in the industry. 

OBG’s Focus on Solutions

PENTA (an OBG company) provided design and engineering services for the plant expansion. PENTA’s design encompassed inside battery limit (i.e., building design, electrical design, equipment support) and outside battery limit tasks (i.e., design for loading docks, tank farms, water utilities). PENTA also prepared construction bid packages for foundations, structural steel, mechanical and piping, insulation, and electrical and instrumentation.

Results that Matter

The $65 million facility dramatically increased throughput and positioned the client to proceed with a major grassroots North American expansion in Alabama.
