The General Mills - Wellston Ohio Facility is located an hour and a half southeast of Columbus. With 17 acres of food manufacturing under their roof, it is one of the largest facilities that General Mills operates. A week prior to the 2013 Memorial Day Holiday, the Ohio Region took part in a major portion of a planned shutdown at the factory.
Limbach's specialty in the project scope was fabricating and installing stainless steel ductwork on the roof and inside the manufacturing area. Through planning and fabrication, we were able to utilize the Erickson Air-Crane (pictured below) to fly large pieces of duct to the center of the plant. This saved a great deal of time of assembly and material handling in the field. As the project week continued, the fabrication and warehouse staff continued support of the field crew installation. The end result was an on time project and a very impressed customer.
