Office and Warehouse Spaces: Besides the vast production area, the facility houses a 17,097 sq ft office space and a 93,152 sq ft warehouse area, reinforcing its comprehensive infrastructure design.
External Infrastructure: The facility’s design accommodates various auxiliary features to aid in efficient operation, including dock pits, ramps, and a dock apron, all complemented by heavy-duty paving. The space also incorporates 4″ thick sidewalks for improved access and functionality.
Strategic Location and Sustainable Impact: The proximity of the new Ball Cup manufacturing facility to main distribution routes optimizes the logistics process while boosting the facility’s operational efficiency.
