Manitowoc, WI – A.C.E. Building Service, a Northeast Wisconsin-based provider of commercial and industrial construction services, announced it has broken ground on a new machine shop for Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. The building will help Fincantieri provide service for the company’s Great Lakes commercial and government maritime clients.
The new machine shop will be 300 feet long and have 19,000 square-feet of space. It will contain two overhead cranes, one with a 5-ton capacity and the other with the ability to raise 30-tons.
“We are proud to be a partner with Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding for this project,” said Chris Herzog, president of A.C.E. Building Service. “A.C.E. worked closely with Fincantieri throughout the construction planning process to establish a design that not only takes into account the needs of modern shipbuilding and servicing, but also the importance of being a good neighbor. The new facility will shift some work operations that had previously been performed outside to indoors.”
This project is part of Fincantieri’s plan to update and modernize its shipyard facilities and infrastructure. A.C.E. has completed projects at the facility for more than 50 years.
