Inplant Offices on Mezzanine


The resurgence of the automotive industry brought new life to this Tennessee plant. Nemak needed to accommodate increased customer orders by freeing up additional space for rack storage. They chose KMH Systems and Panel Built to create the perfect solution.

Challenge: A world leader in automotive aluminum products, Nemak needed more storage space to keep up with customer demand. The increased business meant space was at a premium.
This facility ran 1500 degree furnacess to melt the aluminum used for cylinder heads. Installation would be challenging because temperatures in the factory frequently reached over 110 degrees.

Solution: Nemak went to KMH Systems for a solution to their problem. KMH recommended an elevated office system for personnel, with plenty of space underneath for the rack storage area they needed.

Panel Built Delivers: KMH chose Panel Built to design, manufacture and install a modular office system on a 16 foot tall mezzanine. The entire system was up within a month of the purchase order.

Project Specs: Two 12×48 modular office systems with a 3 foot corridor in between. The mezzanine system measured 27×48 with a 16 foot deck height and an IBC stair system for access.
