Meyer consolidates three legacy manufacturing facilities into one optimized new workplace.
Introduction/Overview
Since its founding in 2017, Industrial Flow Solutions has acquired a number of “small, high-caliber, industrial growth companies” with a focus on creating solutions for managing water, wastewater and other fluids. Three of these companies were Connecticut manufacturers with their own legacy facilities and to eliminate redundancies and increase efficiencies, Industrial Flow created one large new and centralized location in New Haven, Connecticut. Meyer was hired to build out key elements of the new facility, to plan and execute this complex move, and to decommission the old office and factory spaces.
The Challenge

To prepare the new facility and move three unique businesses without disrupting operations requires a great deal of coordination. And to execute this type of transition during the Covid-19 pandemic added significantly to the complexity.

The volume of the move – thousands of individual parts and significant manufacturing equipment – and the challenge of helping optimize the design and buildout of the new facility played to many of Meyer’s strengths.

The Solution

To help Industrial Flow achieve its objectives, the Meyer team delivered many of its core Workplace Solutions, including:

  • Moving all offices and machinery over three months, requiring approximately 120 tractor trailer loads to complete
  • Individually packing, moving, preparing the new parts room and placing more than 5,000 parts onto their shelves at the new facility
  • Reconditioning, refurbishing and installing office furniture systems
  • Collaboration on space planning to optimize workflow efficiencies
  • Providing electrical installation work to support the manufacturing machinery at the new facility
  • Sheet metal fabrication for paint booth vents
  • Decommissioning of the three legacy facilities

 

“Industrial Flow Solutions was faced with moving three different operations across CT in to one facility during a pandemic. As a reliable company that members of the IFS team have worked with in the past, we were familiar with Meyer’s reputation and they were the first call we made to help with multiple aspects of the project. Meyer went above and beyond and assisted with many last-minute emergency construction and cleaning projects. They partnered up with IFS and saw the entire project through from beginning to end. Communication, quality of work, and efficiency were all top notch.” – Matt Blackwell, Director of Operations

Meyer’s Impact
Industrial Flow’s transformation took three phases to complete – one legacy facility at a time – and was completed on schedule at every phase despite the unforeseen challenges presented by Covid-19. Meyer was able to scale its team to overcome these challenges and to ensure that Industrial Flow’s transformation was accomplished without any downtime and minimal impact on their ongoing operations.
