Due to a desire to increase their exportation of goods to the U.S. and take advantage of lower labor costs, ORACAL, a recognized global leader in the manufacture of vinyl films and related adhesive products, took a significant step forward with its decision to open its first U.S. manufacturing facility. The company chose Gresham Smith for its diverse range of design services, eventually contracting with us for architectural, structural, civil and MEP engineering, and interior design.
Phase one of the project included planning and design of a 260,000-square-foot production facility including 40,000 square feet of office space. Successful completion of the facility led ORACAL to enlist our team for phase two, a 100,000-square-foot distribution center addition.
With the opening of its ultra-modern plant, ORACAL USA is able to handle the steadily increasing demand for its complete line of high quality products and same-day order fulfillment. Increased market share, increased production, and improved and Americanized material flows provided by the new manufacturing facility have ORACAL looking to further expand the plant.
