Sanford, Maine (PRWEB) April 28, 2010
In Spring 2010 Rubb Inc. will move into its expanded U.S. steel fabrication facility in Sanford, Maine. This expansion will effectively triple the usable area for steel fabrication at the Rubb plant thereby significantly increasing production capacity.
This project utilizes a 110' span Rubb BVE range structure engineered to code standards for the high 70 pound per square foot snow loads present in Maine. This expansion includes significant improvements to Rubb's 16 acre site with paved storage and handling areas increased to 4 acres. The new facility is fully insulated and equipped with radiant in-floor heating and a state of the art air filtration system that will clean and recycle heated air, generating substantial energy savings. The facility has an architectural masonry and glass front and is provided with offices and mechanical rooms, an employee breakroom, a training room, locker rooms and a 5,000 square foot mezzanine.
Company President David Nickerson commented that, "The cooperation of local and state officials and the excellent work of local subcontractors and Rubb's own staff have resulted in a very successful project. This facility will provide a better and more productive work environment for our employees and will enable us to better serve our customer requirements for the large span structures that form an important part of our growing business."
