Consolidated Construction to Partner with Fox Valley Metal Tech for Building Expansion Fueled by Strategic Business Growth

Fox Valley Metal-Tech (FVMT) announced that it is expanding its Green Bay, Wisconsin-based facility to accommodate growth and increase its precision metal fabrication, assembly, and finishing capabilities for its commercial and military customers. The new addition to their current facility is expected to be completed in April 2022 and is being constructed by Consolidated Construction Company, Inc., of Appleton, WI.

The additional 74,800 square feet of building space is the next phase in FVMT’s strategic plan, bringing the total footprint of their facility to more than 175,000 square feet.

Fox Valley Metal-Tech has been a trusted and relied-upon source of precision metal fabrication for the U.S. Defense Department, having produced products for numerous naval ships, radar systems, submarines, and other critical applications. As the scope of projects and the number of prominent customers have grown, the company recognized the need to grow the facility size, and to combine their entire operations into a single facility.

“We’ve seen a lot of growth in the past 32 years,” said John West, President of Fox Valley Metal-Tech. “During that time we’ve consolidated locations, leased additional space, and modified office and storage areas to accommodate that growth. In fact, this is our fifth expansion over the last 30 years, and our most ambitious. With the added manufacturing space and resulting efficiencies, we have the potential to nearly double our revenue in the next few years.”

Choosing Consolidated Construction as the contractor for the FVMT expansion was also a strategic decision. The construction company is part of the community, which was important to FVMT, and has demonstrated expertise in constructing manufacturing facilities. The relationship with Consolidated Construction began a few years ago when the firm helped FVMT reorganize its offices and shop floor and conducted studies on how to maximize existing space until additional square footage could be added.

FVMT also found value in Consolidated Construction’s design-build and construction management services that included a team of architects and builders. The construction firm proposed an expansion solution and helped to overcome potential challenges, including soil assessments, sewer and water hookups, roof runoff and retention ponds, and municipal building code requirements. The company also offered solutions to procure metal and steel construction materials amid supply chain disruption to help keep the project on schedule.

Consolidated Construction also helped support FVMT’s ongoing green initiatives. The metal fabrication company previously upgraded to LED lighting and implemented high efficiency air compressors. The expanded facility will further those efforts by including efficient air handling and HVAC. The reduction of transportation and extra packaging required to accommodate multiple remote facilities, however, will likely be the greatest contribution to their ongoing green initiatives.
