Expansion doubles facility for global automotive supplier
Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, has broken ground on a 100,000-square-foot industrial facility for INDEVCO Plastics in Orangeburg, S.C. The project is being developed by Brookwood Capital Partners.
Construction on the design-build project commenced in February and is currently in the sitework phase. The 100,000-square-foot pre-engineered metal building will house manufacturing, storage, office, and lab space for the flexible packaging company.
“We’re looking forward to establishing a presence in the southeast, and Frampton Construction has been a reliable partner in that venture. We’re set for an on-time opening and excited to make our entry into Orangeburg and the larger S.C. community,” said Robert Laird, president at INDEVCO Plastics.
The facility includes a 20,000-square-foot penthouse area with 63-foot-high ceilings designed to accommodate large manufacturing machinery. The remaining 80,000-square-feet has a 30-foot clear height. Rail access enables efficient transportation of plastic resin to the facility, which is then manufactured into flexible packaging and distributed throughout North America for a range of industries.
“This project is off to a great start with an impressive team, and we’re confident this will be a swift and successful endeavor we’ll all be proud to witness,” noted Lindsay Sewell, principal at Brookwood Capital Partners.
Keaton Green, vice president of Frampton Construction, said, “To have the chance to build a new facility for a multi-national company like INDEVCO, known not just for plastics, but for recyclable materials that make for a more sustainable world, is an honor for all of us at Frampton Construction.”
Carlisle Associates completed the design for the building and Hoyt + Berenyi provided civil engineering services. Construction is expected to conclude in the fall of 2021.
