Bancroft-AE was commissioned to implement a three-phase manufacturing modernization program. Phase 1 encompassed studying current processing methods, plant infrastructure conditions and opportunities to improve.
Phase 2 included electrical system modernization, a 7,000 sq. ft. building addition, new material handling equipment with Class 1, Div. 1 compliance, new drum handling systems, process piping and bulk material handling systems.
Phase 3 included upgraded process controls systems, improved blending methods and upgraded bulk material and finished goods methods. The new design shortens the bulk materials supply chain, enabling substantial savings in natural gas and more sustainable manufacturing processes.
