J.A. Wagner has completed a 42,875-square-foot production and warehouse space for Shield Restraint Systems, Inc. Located at 3802 Gallatin Way in Elkhart, Indiana, the pre-engineered steel structure is an addition to an existing facility built by our team in 2006. The expansion adds 10,500 square feet of warehouse space with two loading docks and a new 32,375-square-foot temperature-controlled production area.
Shield produces restraints and retraction systems for ATVs, child seats, forklifts, off-road equipment, recreational vehicles, trucks, buses, and airplanes. Around the world, leading vehicle manufacturers, aftermarket distributors, seating providers, and child safety seat manufacturers all trust Shield for quality occupant safety systems and restraints.
This expansion required the installation of some unique equipment, including a 300-ton stamping press with an isolated foundation, five 180-ton horizontal molding presses, one 40-ton molding press, and an overhead bus duct to power the assembly cells.Read More
