METALLIZED CARBON

Producer of carbon graphite products. Headquarters and manufacturing in Westchester County, NY. Required a second manufacturing site as skilled labor shortage, high power costs, and plant layout/efficiency comprised significant inhibitors to future growth in Westchester County. The new production facility would require:
bullet 100,000 SF building
bullet 10 acre site
bullet 100 workers
bullet $5.5 million capital investment

WDGC was retained to recommend a site for both new production and partial capacity transfer from Westchester County. Predominant locational influences were:
bullet Electric power cost
bullet Electric power reliability
bullet Transportation costs (motor carrier)
bullet Inbound
bullet Outbound
bullet Availability of qualified workers, especially machine operator
bullet Available 100,000 SF building
bullet Proximate to major customers

In a multi-stage search, WDGC recommended Martinsville/Henry County in southern Virginia. This location satisfied all major criteria for the new Metcar plant. Retrofit of a shell building now underway. Occupancy scheduled for mid-2014. Anticipated cost savings vis--vis Westchester County is estimated to be 25%.
