AACOA’s Major Expansion Project Like Renovating A Moving Train

Posted by Tony Harman on Aug 22, 2017 10:37:00 AM

The expansion at AACOA's Niles, Michigan facility was constructed using Butler pre-engineered metal buildings.

After years of serving commercial and manufacturing businesses throughout the United States, J.A. Wagner Construction still looks forward to new challenges. We like to think that if a client needed us to renovate a moving train, we’d find a way. 

In fact, we’re grateful for the opportunity we recently had to test our capabilities when we worked with a leading aluminum extrusion company in Niles, Michigan. AACOA’s major $18 million expansion project, designed to accommodate a new state-of-the-art aluminum extrusion line, proved we can successfully expand a facility that’s operational 24/7—the manufacturing equivalent of a train that never stops.

New “Hub and Spoke” Facility for Universal Trailer is Unique Approach

Posted by J.A. Wagner Construction on Aug 4, 2017 9:49:09 AM

The design-build project for Universal Trailer involved the construction of a 199,808 square-foot “hub and spoke” style facility for the production of fully-assembled trailers as well as trailer kits.

Playing an important role in a large-scale construction project is always exciting for us here at J.A. Wagner Construction. But, being part of new construction model is even more exciting. We found this to be true earlier this year when we constructed Universal Trailer Cargo Group’s new paint and production facility in the heart of the Midwest in Bristol, Indiana.

Universal Trailer is known for its high-quality trailers. Its brands, which include Haulmark, Haulmark Motorcoach, Featherlite, Featherlite Specialty, Exiss, Sooner, and Wells Cargo, are commonly seen on highways across North America. The company manufactures horse trailers, livestock trailers, ATV trailers, motorcycle trailers, snowmobile trailers, race car trailers, custom car trailers, equipment trailers, and made-to-order trailers for specialty hauling projects.
