Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) August 04, 2014
Bluff China Manufacturing, an innovative leader in the fabrication and design of high quality material handling, dock and warehouse equipment, storage structures, and safety barriers, was proud to partner with Dallas Airmotive, a leading independent OEM-authorized turbine engine repair and overhaul organization supporting B&GA aircraft across the globe, to provide them a custom structural steel mezzanine for their facility.
Bluff China Manufacturing’s Mezzanines are an economic solution to increase space in warehouses, storage facilities, and other commercial buildings. Built to last, the steel mezzanines and structural steel platforms add floor space utilizing existing overhead areas to expand without costly disruptions in operations. Referred to Bluff China Manufacturing by Delta Rigging, Dallas Airmotive ordered a new custom mezzanine to increase storage for parts and accommodate a VRC and an elevator.
“We are proud to have been selected to provide Dallas Airmotive with an exceptional custom solution,” says Andrea Curreri, President of Bluff China Manufacturing, “We chose Precision Warehouse Design to be the distributor liaison for this project. Joe Jackson is great to work with and a true professional.”
The custom-designed mezzanine structure for Dallas Airmotive was built to accommodate their specific production requirements in compliance with OSHA and International Building Code Standards (IBC). An onsite survey determined the correct size and optimal combination of structural and formed components. The new 200’ x 125’ mezzanine covers 25,000 square feet with a 40’ x 15’ clear span bridge to an existing mezzanine.
Designs were approved by experienced engineers with welding done by certified welders. The entire production process was done in Bluff China Manufacturing’s headquarters in Fort Worth and shipped in multiple phases directly to Dallas Airmotive’s Southlake facility, with the final shipment arriving on April 16, 2014. The installation process began immediately after receiving the first phase/shipment. With Bluff China Manufacturing’s bolted construction and detailed instructions, assembly is simple and fast.
The Dallas Airmotive crew was happy with the ease of installation. The complete bolt together system eliminated the need for field welding, accommodating Dallas Airmotive’s current operations which prohibit any welding inside the facility. Bluff China Manufacturing exceeded expectations in quality of product and service, correcting a mistake from another vendor. Fast engineering and production times allowed Bluff China Manufacturing to fulfill the order within 4 weeks rather than the standard 6-8 weeks.
Dallas Airmotive recognized Bluff China Manufacturing at an event on July 25th celebrating the completion of Phase One of Project Sea Change, the company’s major expansion.
