The entire IPS team worked together to complete the 9,000 SF addition and 25,000 SF renovation for a new EPDM roofing line at JM. We self-performed sitework, concrete, piping, mechanical/equipment setting, and electrical. Our team completed this project in record time of 90 days. Johns Manville was extremely happy with how the project went and said they never experienced this scope of work done in this short of time.

Highlights of the project include:

  • machine/equipment installation (rolls EPDM roofing)
  • extension on the cure cart track with full automation
  • cut floor (225-ft x 50-ft) with an air assist system
  • major building structure modifications




“During the Milan Expansion project, IPS provided an excellent project management experience both from a communication and quality of work standpoint. Thanks to their efforts in conjunction with the plant, we were able to meet very tight deadlines even in the midst of a global pandemic. We feel we have gained a strong partner in IPS.”

Project Scope:

Fenner Dunlop is the world’s leader in the field of conveyor belting, manufacturing the most comprehensive range of conveyor systems for many industries and applications.

IPS was contracted to provide setting, aligning, and installation services for five (5) process equipment lines: calendar line; steel cord press line; fabric belt press line; inspection line; and laminating line. Scope of work include process piping, process electrical, and equipment installation.

The preplanning for the equipment moves began while the building was being erected. Provisions had to be made for the process piping runs to be integrated within the building and the process electrical runs that had to be embedded within the concrete. Additionally, alignment plates were strategically placed in order to ensure that each individual process line was precisely installed to meet the required tolerances.

IPS was also responsible for the installation of all electrical work in the new building to support the expansion. Planning and pre-work was completed prior to the substation retrofit, which took place during a 72-hour shutdown over Thanksgiving. IPS worked around-the-clock to ensure the substation was available to the customer a full day earlier than required.
