Project Scope:

Dana is a world leader in the supply of highly engineered drivetrain, sealing, and thermal management technologies that improve the efficiency and performance of vehicles with both conventional and alternative-energy powertrains.

In May 2016 plans were released that Dana was building a 300,000 sq. ft. facility in Toledo, Ohio. Dana plans to invest approximately $70 million and employ over 300 new employees by 2020. IPS was selected to coordinate with equipment manufactures to transport Dana owned equipment from their vendors to the new facility.

IPS unloaded and installed the specialized equipment for production of their new rear axle as well as provided material and labor to install the process production equipment. IPS also performed the engineering, procurement and installation for the control package to monitor the Dana tank farm.

Challenges:

IPS worked closely with Dana personnel to ensure smooth operations to provide that the equipment installation was done on a timely basis during the beginning phases and throughout the duration of the launch of the new facility.

Project Scope:

Autoneum is a globally-leading supplier of acoustic and thermal management materials for automobiles.  The firm develops and produces multifunctional and lightweight components and systems for noise and heat protection necessary for vehicle comfort.  In September 2011, Autoneum began new construction of a 106,500 SF manufacturing facility in Oregon, Ohio.

IPS was contracted to install the presses at the new facility, and to complete the infrastructure associated with the mechanical and electrical systems required for operation of the presses.  Equipment installed by IPS includes:  compressors, dryers, boilers, chillers, economizers, chemical treatment systems, controls, and power wiring.  IPS also installed steam condensate, compressed air, and chilled water piping; and potable, non-potable, and dye-release systems.

Challenges:

Through outstanding team work and time management, IPS was able to have all the process systems operational and functional within a six-week period in order for Autoneum to begin cycling presses for production.  Since completion of this new facility in Oregon, Ohio, Autoneum has now become the only plant in North America that develops and produces the one-of-a-kind lightweight component for vehicles.
