Electrolux has established themselves as the world′s largest producer of appliances and equipment for kitchen, cleaning and outdoor use. And when they wanted to take their business into new territory, they looked to a construction partner they could trust. Graycor International was brought on to build a new 1.7 million-square-foot refrigerator manufacturing facility in Juarez, Mexico. Project plans called for performing complete design, site work, foundations, floor slabs, structure and enclosure construction, architectural finishes, and all mechanical and electrical utilities. The year-long, fast-track design-build project included the simultaneous construction of a manufacturing building, plastics building, warehouse, office facility and site ancillary buildings. Due to the remote location of the facility, new state access roads were constructed and utilities required for plant operations had to be brought to the site from a distance of several kilometers.
