MEI Rides a Wave of the Future for Factories 

AUGUST 10, 2017, SALT LAKE CITY, UT –

MEI Rigging & Crating have elevated their game while efficiently installing a new challenge that could help any new or refurbished factory.

The 2 month long project involves moving and lifting 150 8’ x 32’ utility modules that are set and bolted onto elevated steel. The average weight of the modules is about 4,000 pounds with the heaviest being 6,200 pounds. These utility modules will be the wave of the future.

Instead of the running a single lines, MEI installed prebuild modules and weld the joints. The process now involves building large sections of manufacturing utility supply systems than can be installed very efficiently so that electrical systems, exhaust ducts, plumbing drain systems, gas lines, and water lines can be rapidly built and commissioned for startup in a fraction of the time that a traditional build out would take.

“Anybody interested in refurbishing a factory or building a new one will most likely be using this new construction process,” says Shelby Standefer, MEI Rigging & Crating Utah Operations Manager, “and in part thanks to this project, we will now have 2 months to become better experts at the installation of these utility modules.”

MEI offers cost-effective facilities outsource and on-site services to enhance the use and productivity of a customer’s assets. MEI will place a factory team on the site to be on call to handle your facilities moving, coordinating, installation and/or logistics needs.

Whether we are simply supplying rigging resources or managing a complete equipment furnishings and logistics program, we deliver commitment-based service to semiconductor, commercial and industrial clients.
