Sutton, MA – Primetals Technologies celebrated the first milestone recently in the construction of a new location for its steel mill equipment manufacturing, research and development, engineering, and sales operations at 85 Gilmore Drive in Sutton. The ceremony included a traditional first dig at the site.
The new 183,000sf facility will include advanced technology manufacturing tools to meet customer needs for both services and capital projects. The facility will provide the first opportunity for its local employees to work together at one location.
The project’s design-build construction partner is JM Coull, Inc. of Maynard, who has teamed with studio TROIKA, Building Engineering Resources, RRC Engineering, Andrews Survey & Engineering, Inc. and Scannell Properties on the project.
Retaining the expertise of its employees was among the many reasons the company decided to stay in Massachusetts. Recruiting for the future was another, according to Gabriel Royo, VP, Rolling Mill Services.
Construction is expected to be complete in the spring of 2020.
