(Appleton, WI) Bemis Company, Inc. has selected Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc. to provide total project management of its $25 million expansion project in Oshkosh. The 160,000 sq. ft. project involves renovating the two existing facilities on the Bemis Healthcare Packaging campus and constructing a 107,000 sq. ft. warehouse addition that will combine the buildings into one.
The facility addition will provide Bemis with increased warehouse space and feature a high-bay storage and racking system to hold raw goods and finished product. New offices will be added to the existing warehouse as well as employee locker rooms and a state-of-the-art employee training center.
Highlights of the project’s design include the addition of a tour corridor that will run throughout all three facilities and allow clients to view the package manufacturing process, a more efficient lighting plan for the entire facility, and significant performance improvements to the clean rooms (that ensure a sterile environment during the production process), which will help reduce energy costs.
“Hoffman is proud to partner with Bemis on this critical project for the company,” said Miles Girouard, President of Hoffman. “Once complete, it will provide Bemis with a high-performance facility that will help them remain leaders in the global healthcare packaging market.”
When completed, the facility will double the size of Bemis’ current healthcare packaging operations in Oshkosh. “We are very excited about the project,” said Paul Verbeten, President of Bemis Healthcare Packaging. “It’s great for the company and for Oshkosh and we are pleased to have Hoffman as a partner.”
The new facility is expected to be complete in the summer of 2015.
