G-CON Manufacturing has announced the expansion of its manufacturing facility for POD superstructures in College Station, Texas.

Previously limited to manufacturing only 50 superstructures in-house and 50 superstructures per year through supply agreements, the expansion now allows the construction of 200 POD superstructures per year, all produced in-house.

The new production area features overhead cranes and an assembly line approach that allows for more efficient and safe production with better quality.

“Prior to this expansion, the lack of available space created a bottleneck for the G-CON College Station operation,” said Blake Williams, VP of Operations at G-CON Manufacturing. “The new 25,000 sqft area was designed for and is completely dedicated to superstructure fabrication, relieving a bottleneck that previously existed in our production process. We are also proud of the fact that the new facility employs the safest, easiest, most robust method of fabricating units with the best in class overhead cranes, man lifts, welding equipment and safety equipment.”

As part of this project, G-CON also added a canteen for its manufacturing team giving them a place to relax during break and mealtime. The 2,500 sqft canteen boasts modernised restroom facilities and a fully functioning kitchen for G-CON’s 100+ staff members.
