Successful Plant Relocation

Logistics are vital to plant relocation project

Relocating a plant is a highly demanding task, but a large portion of the work happens in the planning. Plant relocation projects must be handled through a master plan with multiple phases and sub-phases taking into account the many different segments of the operation – employees, machinery, IT, packaging, shipping, and receiving, etc. Contractors should also have a clear understanding of the client’s profit centers within the company prior to planning and phasing a project.

One of the first considerations in plant relocation is time-frame. When must the new facility be up, commissioned and running? Part of R. Baker & Son’s plant relocation planning involves working backward from the targeted startup date, enabling us to identify potential trouble spots and tie up loose ends before they can unravel.

Early phases of a plant relocation project always require installation of a “backbone” of utilities and IT network at the new facility. This can include electrical substations and distribution, IT racks and switches, building automation systems, and process control systems. Larger expenditures are usually required during early phases because these investments will support all of the future swing-over phases. Minimizing expenses and downtime are key to ensuring a smooth transition.

Logistics are vital to any plant relocation project. In addition to moving fixtures and equipment, a project may also involve purchasing new and/or upgrading or repairing existing equipment. The logistics and various complexities unique to every plant relocation project require detailed user requirement specifications and the input of multiple disciplines to make sure the multi-phased approach works.

R. Baker & Son has vast experience in partnering with plant relocation clients to help develop a comprehensive, multi-phased project plan. To find out more about plant relocation and how Baker can help plan your next project, please contact us at 732-222-3553.
