SFS Intec is a Swiss company specializing in the manufacture of fasteners and fastening systems. While its flagship production facility is in Heerbrugg, Switzerland, SFS Intec contracted with Maple Reinders to design and build one of its premier North American manufacturing facilities in Ontario. Maple Reinders designed and constructed the new plant on a 11,409 m2 site, surrounded by ample green space and efficient trucking facilities. The building consists of a two-storey office, which includes a reception area, office space, workstations, boardroom and a demonstration room. The manufacturing and production area houses a maintenance and testing room, explosion-proof paint storage room, compressor area (in a mezzanine), and general production facilities. The warehouse provides well-organized racking space for finished product ready for shipment. Roof heights for the facility vary between 32 feet and 28 feet. Maple Reinders elected to use a pre-engineered metal building system to maximize both cost and schedule efficiency for this Design-Build project.
