TGB Instrumental in Accredo Packaging Expansion
TGB Group provided professional survey, design and construction services for the expansion of the Accredo Packaging North American production facility in Sugar Land, Texas. The latest in three phases of expansion was completed in the first quarter of 2020 and provided Accredo with nearly three times more operational space.
Highlights of the survey, design and construction expansion project include:
- Total facility space upon completion: 550,000 square feet, which is nearly almost three times the original size
- 165,000 additional square feet of warehouse and office space
- 35,840 square feet of new manufacturing space
- Work included adding a 4,000-amp underground power supply
- Two 500t air-cooled chillers were added to serve production equipment
- Two new rail spurs
- 1,825 additional feet of railroad track along with a crossover and drainage accommodation
New survey, design and construction increases capacity and creates jobs
The expansion project will give Accredo a significant capacity increase for bag and pouch making, adhesive lamination projects and flexographic printing. Annual flexible film production was increased to 2 billion feet from 1.5 billion feet.
Along with greater production at its Sugar Land facility, which opened in 2009, the expansion work resulted in 175 new jobs in the area, bringing the number of Accredo employees up to 525 from 350 before the project began.
TGB Group partnered with Railworks for much of the survey, design and construction services on this project, which supported Kingham Dalton Wilson, which oversaw the design and construction of a new building located to the south of the existing facility.
