Project Scope:

Getrag is one of the largest independent automotive transmission manufacturers worldwide. Getrag is built a new 600,000 square ft. production/assembly facility in Tipton, Indiana to service the needs of Chrysler. IPS was chosen to perform two major phases of the construction.  The first of the phases covered the complete 600,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility, installed process mains, as well as the piping for the makeup air units, and symphonic drain systems. IPS is also responsible for the installation of all plumbing and insulation for the new office area. IPS completed the mechanical, electrical, controls, Insulation and sheet metal for this project.

Challenges:

The second phase, is construction of the powerhouse mechanical, electrical, sheet metal, insulation and controls for the entire facility. All of the equipment will be supplied by IPS. As with previous projects, IPS is on a very tight schedule on the Getrag project, timetabled for completion in only 3 months. IPS has been able to manage these tasks with great success, given their ability and experience to manage large projects.

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.
