Contact Whitley Manufacturing

A major shipping company was projecting significant growth in their services due to the massive increase of e-commerce activity.  They required a new facility for an additional package-sorting hub.  New land acquisition also presented an opportunity for future expansion.  But, the biggest challenge - it needed to be operational in less than 5 months.
 
Whitley proposed the industrial, wide span, modular structure called the “UpGrade.” With its proprietary structural system, the wall and roof components are joined together as one unit, making set-up extremely fast and cost effective. The end walls have the ability to fold under, allowing up to 3 modules to be shipped on a single flatbed trailer, reducing freight costs.  Siding, insulation, and electrical systems are pre-installed in the factory also minimizing on-site work. Once the modules arrive, they are lifted by crane allowing the end walls to unfold into a vertical position. Within a day, all the modules are set, fastened to the concrete slab, and mate-lines are closed in by the finishing crew.
 
The Upgrade has been designed to be relocate-able.  The flexible design allows the facility to add, remove or relocate to adapt with its changing business environment.
