Anchor Construction and Transcendia Production Facility Groundbreaking Ceremony

Anchor Construction broke ground on a manufacturing and office facility project in Hebron, Ohio, for plastic films and products manufacturer, Transcendia.

Transcendia operates 17 global manufacturing facilities with a wide range of custom manufacturing and converting capabilities. The Ohio expansion will support barrier film applications in the healthcare, food and beverage, and industrial packaging markets, creating 36 more jobs for the area.

This ground-up project will include a 52,000-SF production and warehouse space and a 13,000-SF two-story office space. The production area will include an 85-foot tall “high bay” to house the plastics production equipment. The facility will also have a maintenance area with an overhead crane and truck doors for shipping and receiving operations. The site work will require excavation of about 15 feet, as the building was placed in an area with an existing slope that needs to be graded flat. This project includes more than a quarter mile of rail spur to service the new building.

Anchor Construction coordinated the entire design-build project to meet key milestones required by the client, including the official groundbreaking ceremony with local elected officials and the planned equipment installation and ribbon-cutting ceremony. The design pays special attention to Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification requirements, as well as coordination with the routing of cable trays for electrical equipment connections and resin-handling equipment for the plastic production processes.
