Heavy Haul and Over-Dimensional Transportation
Most manufacturers who relocate or consolidate a manufacturing plant desire their machinery and equipment to have a uniformed appearance. Often it involves an interest to incorporate the company's logo colors. This is accomplished in several ways. We can manage the cleaning and painting before, during or after the relocation. After an evaluation of your scope of work timeline constraints for relocation and a thorough evaluation of your existing machinery conditions, we will present a variety of options for consideration. After our meeting, you will also understand the full spectrum of options for cleaning and painting which plays a large role in durability and appearance concerns. Many manufacturers seek a brand new look which offers longevity combined with value. We can help you obtain both.

Precision alignment of machinery is accomplished at the time of installation through the use of optical tooling instruments by our trained professionals and partner-providers as required. Precision optical instruments such as Theodlites, Optical Squares and Tilting Levels are used in conjunction with Lasers and a variety of mechanical measuring devices, heavy-duty instrument stands and custom made jigs and fixtures. Our sources instruments and equipment provide a means of accurate measurement while maintaining flatness/level, straightness, squareness and truism with very precise accuracy over long lines. Our crews utilize the necessary alignment tools, methodologies and specialized techniques to assure a shortened installation timeline.
Over-weight and/or over-dimensional machinery and equipment requires permits to travel legally between origin and destination. A heavy hauler usually consists of flatbed trailer units with multiple wheels pulled by a heavy tractor unit. Several trailers might be towed by one or more tractor units. The ability to carry loads of 2000 tons is not unusual. In some cases a route survey must be performed well in advance to address over-pass clearances, bridge capacities and congested regions. Your load(s) may require pole cars, standard escorts or police escorts subject to the specifics of your shipment. Whether your over-dimensional or over-weight load is being shipped domestic or international, much is at stake! We partner with only Top-Rated Carriers to assure that your transfer needs are performed as you expect.

Planning & Management
Our initial consultation involves the process of clearly understanding your objectives relative to your upcoming Industrial transfer undertaking. In order to do this, we will discuss your level of knowledge, experience, concerns, time availability, etc. We will in turn help you understand possible options to accomplish your objectives. If time permits, we will assess your overall project by viewing the equipment identified for transfer, facility constraints, projected timeline and Scope of Work considerations. We pride ourself on helping customers make educated, sound decisions for any and all Industrial transition endeavors. We look forward to being of service
We offer a simple yet proven project management process. The process entails the discipline of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling the necessary resources to achieve your specific goals and scope of work. Our primary challenge is to achieve the complete scope of work while honoring the pre-conceived constraints. The primary constraints are time, quality and budget. Our secondary, and more ambitious challenge is to effectively resolve unforeseen scope alterations while meeting our valued customer's pre-defined objectives.
Rigging and Millwright work is a critical component of relocating the majority of manufacturing plants. Riggers and millwrights are craftsmen or tradesmen engaged with the erection of machinery. This includes such tasks as leveling, aligning and installing machinery on foundations or base plates and setting, leveling and aligning electric motors or other power sources such as turbines with the equipment, which millwrights typically connect specialized tools and other support equipment. In some cases, this has been referred to as a "technical art form". Only the most skilled tradesmen with proper experience should be permitted to perform this High-Risk Service Platform for you. We are a proud source who will only staff your job with the most qualified tradesmen who maintain supporting credentials.

Overseas shipping involves modes of transportation, packaging requirements and documentation, all of which are very different from the requirements for domestic shipping. Proper export packaging is critical in order to contain and protect machinery while assuring a destination handling convenience. There are many hazards common to international relocation of machinery and equipment. Secondly, you must hire a company that has experience at export documentation as this is often a problem area for most shippers. We significantly reduces the probability of damage and border clearing delays. Furthermore, we will assist you with additional Loss Reduction Strategies, Cargo Insurance Options, and a full spectrum of Shipping System Options.

Dry-ice blasting involves propelling pellets at extremely high speeds. The actual dry-ice pellets are quite soft, and much less dense than other media used in blasting-cleaning (i.e. sand or plastic pellets). Upon impact, the pellet sublimates almost immediately, transferring minimal kinetic energy to the surface on impact and producing minimal abrasion. The sublimation process absorbs a large volume of heat from the surface, producing shear stresses due to thermal shock. Dry-ice cleaning is perfect for most machinery and all electrical components. It may also be used to clean some equipment without disassembly and without producing fire or electrical hazards. The EPA recommends dry ice blasting as an alternative to many types of solvent-based cleaning. Wel can effectively manage any Ice-blasting requirements for your upcoming project.
It is common for a manufacturer to relocate to a facility with altered column spacing, smaller or larger foot print, accessibility constraints and ceiling height variations different from that of the origin site. These variables often create the need for machinery line alterations, footprint modifications or sometimes referred to as re-configurations. The process involves a combination of services including yet not limited to engineering, prints, cutting, welding, bending, treading, adding supports, altering electrical components, etc. We have the technical resources to plan and manage the required changes to accommodate a multitude of layout adjustments.

Before any demolition activities, there are many steps that need to take place — including but not limited to performing asbestos abatement, removing hazardous or regulated materials, obtaining necessary permits, submitting necessary notifications, disconnecting utilities, rodent baiting, and development of site-specific safety and work plans. A new approach to demolition is the deconstruction of a building with the goal of minimizing the amount of materials going to landfills. This "green" approach is applied by removing the materials by type material and segregating them for reuse or recycling. With proper planning this approach has resulted in landfill diversion rates that exceed 90% of an entire building and its contents in some cases. We can easily support all your interior and exterior demolition needs.

Machinery Lines and Equipment being transferred may need electrical trouble-shooting at time of start-up. Electrical engineering expertise may be required to resolve a specific concern. Machinery electrical engineering entails the design and testing of electronic circuits that use the properties of components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes and transistors to achieve a particular functionality. Many factors affect the functionality of a machine line working properly therefore it is critical to take certain steps prior to a relocation to assure minimal disruption or delays during the start-up process. In addition to electrical engineering and technical start-up assistance, We will assist you with the required planning steps to minimize relocation down-time.
