Project Scope:

General Motors Corporation proceeded with the project to install new process equipment for the TTO GF9 Transmission Program at the Toledo Plant. Installation of all equipment pertaining to the TTO GF9 Gears, Prismatics and Assembly departments – and retooling of existing GF6 equipment in Prismatics. IPS performed fabrication and installation of all process utility piping systems; including compressed air, chilled water, coolants, automatic transmission fluid, deionized water and industrial waste.

Challenges:

The biggest challenge was safely working on a congested site while maintaining schedule. Through adherence to GM safety policy, toolbox talks and regular safety audits, IPS and the other contractors involved worked 250,000 man-hours completing the project without an OSHA recordable or lost-time incident. TTO will now be able to manufacture the GF9 transmission in addition to the GF6, 6-speed RWD and 8-speed RWD transmissions already in production.

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.
