U.S. International, New Warehouse — Alabama — Installation
The Tuscaloosa plant was founded in 1995 and started production in 1997. The Mercedes-Benz M-Class was the first product and has been built ever since the start of production in 1997, later joined by the SUVs of the GL- and R-Class. In 2011, the plant produced more than 148,000 vehicles and employed more than 2,800 team members at the end of the year. As of 2014, the Tuscaloosa plant is one of the four global production locations of the successor generation of the current Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and will build these vehicles for the North American market.
EDGE Fire was contracted to provide Fire Sprinkler protection for the new warehouse, using ESFR-25 sprinklers throughout.
Alabama and Mississippi
With nearly 1.1 million square feet, and employing over 1,200 people, the manufacturing plant in Alabama is a key plant for Toyota — building over 750,000 vehicle each year.
EDGE Fire was the successful bidder to provide complete Fire Sprinkler Protection to Phase V of this facility. The General Contractor for this job was Aristeo Construction and we worked together to install an automatic wet sprinkler system to this expansion. ESFR Fast Response K-14.0 brass pendent heads were installed in the plant area, while semi-recessed heads were used in the finished ceilings of the cafeteria and offices.
