CM Black Construction recently broke ground on a 50,000-square-foot expansion to the manufacturing facility at the corporate headquarters of Oiles America Corporation in Concord, NC. CM Black was also the general contractor for the 32,000-square-foot expansion to the facility in 2005.
The current project includes additional truck docks, increased parking capacity, the incorporation of energy-efficiency technology, renovations to the warehouse and office space and new research and development facilities.
Estimated to bring 15 to 30 jobs to Concord, the expansion is designed to help the corporation achieve greater flexibility, allowing them to meet global capacity for current and future product lines.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Aug. 14. Congressman Larry Kissell, the U.S. representative for North Carolina’s 8th District, spoke at the event, stating that, “this investment will benefit our region immensely.” The expansion is estimated to be completed by fall 2013.
