Sound Seal, a manufacturer of noise control products serving the industrial, architectural, commercial and construction industries, has capped a nine-month long construction project at its Agawam, Mass., facility, nearly doubling its footprint and increasing production capabilities and manufacturing processes available onsite.
Working with Sage Engineering & Contracting of Westfield, Mass., members of the leadership team mapped out a plan that maximized the available acreage at the Agawam site, taking into consideration both current and future needs with regard to space and production capabilities.
Adam Young, vice president of Operations of Catalyst Acoustics Group, Sound Seal’s parent company, shed some light on the planning: “Special consideration was given throughout the process so as not to disrupt employees or the needs of customers throughout construction. When all was said and done, we can say we celebrated a period of sales growth during the physical growth of our facility.”
Highlights of the new construction include a 30,000-square-foot addition, extra loading docks and an expanded parking lot with an extended truck ramp. Inside, the extra square footage on the shop floor has made way for the storage of inventory previously stored off-site and the addition of new machinery including a waterjet cutter and digital latex printer.
Dawn Bauguess, Sound Seal plant manager, states: “Given the room to grow, Sound Seal will be able to increase staffing, product lines and internal capabilities. This truly marks a new beginning for the company and I, for one, am excited to see the many good things to come.”
A timelapse encapsulating the project into a 1-minute video is available for viewing.
