“We are proud to have been a part of this innovative project,” Brian Gebauer, Consolidated Construction project manager, said. “The relocation and physical expansion of Werner Electric Supply allows the company to broaden their presence and serve a larger audience as the company continues to grow.”

The 60,350-square-foot expansion is a response to the company’s impressive growth over the past 35 years that helped generate $50 million in annual revenue.

The project was divided into two segments: a 42,105-square-foot addition to the existing facility, and 18,425 square feet of new commercial construction that includes 16 private offices, 52 cubicle work stations, and various conference rooms for meetings and executive planning.

“Our role in the construction of Marion Body Work’s facility and new showroom provided our company great satisfaction and pride in a job well done,” Mark Schwei, Consolidated Construction executive vice president, said. “We finished more than 50 project upgrade requests by our original completion date.”
