We broke ground on July 20th 2015 on our 14,000 sq ft state of the art building. In less than two months 245 cubic yards of cement has been poured inside. The building will have five dismantling bays and one inventory bay. The dismantlers will now have access to new equipment such as suction guns, 12,000 lb. lifts, an Oil Water Separator, independent work areas, and individual overhead hoists. The entire South processing wing will be insulated with a sound proof material to keep noise levels at a minimum. A new feature for full service recyclers will be a gas punch building. No longer will our dismantlers have the painstaking process of dropping tanks “the old fashioned way”.
Our inventory personnel will no longer have to brave the elements to grade and photograph vehicles as they will now have their own indoor work bay. Our new retail area will be bright and airy with new furniture, phone systems, and several cubicles for commercial sales reps as well as an office for a future sales manager.
The completion of the new building is still on schedule for January 2016. We are anticipating that the many new mechanical and ergonomic improvements will increase overall processing production by roughly 25%.
The state of the art facility was expertly crafted by our very own Bob Wilbert. *For photos & videos of the construction check out our page www.facebook.com/wilbertslakeside
