ModSpace Opens Refurbishment-Manufacturing Hub in Tooele, Utah

04/17/2018
ModSpace, a leading innovator in modular construction, opened a West Coast refurbishment and manufacturing facility in Tooele, Utah.

The new facility complements the company's East Coast refurbishment and manufacturing facility based in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. With these facilities, ModSpace becomes a fully-integrated, nationwide designer, manufacturer and installer of modular buildings for lease or sale, the company said.

According to company officials, Utah and Pennsylvania facilities give ModSpace greater control over the production process and delivers greater speed, certainty and simplicity for their customers. ModSpace will use these facilities to refurbish its existing fleet, build new products to expand its leasing fleet and serve customers who want to design, build and purchase custom modular buildings.

"Time is in short supply with our customers and they demand certainty from their suppliers," explains Charles Paquin, ModSpace CEO. "These facilities enable us to simplify the supply chain, act faster, deliver more predictable build schedules and put customers in a better position of control."

"Our history has been to produce buildings through third-party providers. But that pool of providers is shrinking, and we needed more options to serve our customers, " he said. The ability to leverage internal as well as external capabilities will enable ModSpace to optimize overall production schedules.

The ModSpace manufacturing facilities in Utah and Pennsylvania will have more than 230,000 square feet of manufacturing space combined and the capacity to produce or refurbish more than 10 units per day. The facilities will be used to: Refurbish existing fleet and build new fleet to the latest energy and safety codes while adding features to support occupant productivity. It will also expand proprietary access to line time for time-sensitive projects and develop and manufacture differentiated and innovative products.

"Simply-stated, we'll be able to handle more of everything from white-boarding to ribbon-cutting. That's great news for our customers," Paquin added.
