Adjacent Property Annexation Mesa, Arizona
Electric Motor Rebuild Shop
Mesa, AZ was home to an electric motor rebuild operation with limited in-yard welding operations, specializing in bucket, dipper, handle and boom repair. There were offsite offices and warehousing. Both of these areas were rental properties under lease. Our client’s goal was to consolidate its operations by adding onto their electric motor rebuild shop and increasing warehouse capacity. However, due to its location within Maricopa County, the expansion was severely limited. The land area only spanned an approximate 5 acres.
The executive lean manufacturing consulting staff at Campbell Corporation was quickly recruited to evaluate the site. Following an in-depth series of meetings, along with a thorough market analysis and our pre-existing knowledge of the industry, the client’s needs were carefully identified. We immediately proposed a plan which would accomplish all of the operation’s goals.
Our expert solution-providers contacted a contiguous property owner and were able to purchase 2 acres of adjacent land. We approached the City of Mesa, detailing the benefits of annexing the site within a Planned Area Development (PAD), therefore allowing our client much-needed versatility and greater freedom. Our proposed building plans circumvented side yard setbacks, building height, parking and land area coverage restrictions. We proceeded to design and carry out the construction of a fabrication bay and new set of offices. We also evaluated existing operations of the motor rebuild shop and re-configured process flow patterns, including a complete redesign and remodel.
To this day, our client continues to have a modern, updated and faster-functioning operation on one consolidated site. Worker amenities are superior and product flow has been optimized. Other lean manufacturing sites in Arizona include Phoenix, Tucson and Scottsdale. Regardless of the location, whether in the U.S. or international, the global project management consultants at Campbell Corp always help other businesses thrive.
