Industrial Rigging Services for Plant and Equipment Relocations
Move Your Heavy Machinery with Industrial Rigging ExpertsFrom strict project timeline requirements to having the right equipment for moving and rigging, plant relocation and equipment relocation can be challenging for many. Whether you need to move 50 miles or across the country, moving industrial equipment can pose logistic headaches. Unforeseen relocation issues like facility restrictions or size issues with equipment require experienced, heavy machinery movers and rigging experts.
Client BackgroundOur client based in San Jose needed to move their industrial equipment from an old location to a new location 30 miles away. For over 40 years, they have been an industry-leader in the commercial printing industry. As a single-source supplier, their services include printing, binding, packaging, and more.
While this was not a cross-country move, it required extensive planning and adjustments to ensure equipment was moved within the timeframe required. The list of equipment that required relocation included heavy machinery as well as expensive, digital equipment as well.
With time constraints and a long list of printing equipment to move, the client relied on Asset Liquidity’s rigging knowledge and moving expertise to relocate their plant as well as disassemble and assemble all heavy machinery and equipment.
Plant Relocation ChallengesThe relocation involved moving the entire plant, including 80 pieces of heavy machinery and equipment. A deadline of 2 weeks was required for moving the equipment of out of the old location, with time constraints factoring into the difficulty of the relocation. Unexpected challenges for this relocation included:
- Cushioned floor where forklifts could not be used
- Requiring equipment to be moved to a mezzanine level floor
- Equipment wider than what the new location’s doors would allow
- Aluminum and tin equipment that required special moving processes
- Some pieces weigh as much as 44,000 lbs.
- Plant space went from 100,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet
