Why would a company out of Indiana hire a small company out of Iowa to install a modular office in their factory? One word–speed.
International Paper out of Crawfordsville, Indiana needed a large project done in their factory in a very short amount of time. The plan was to take out an old conveyor, put in a new one, and install a modular office, all within 10 days. The contractor hired to do the job does quite a bit of work with our vendor, Porta-King. Porta-King is a company out of Missouri that manufactures portable buildings, shelters, wall partitions and mezzanines. A modular in-plant office was requested for this particular project and Dan Maras, a Midwest Regional Sales Manager for Porta-King, knew just who to call to install the modular office quickly and effectively.
“We have done quite a bit of work with Barron in the past and we knew how fast they are with installing buildings and equipment,” said Dan.
With a 10 day turnaround, this needed to be implemented as quickly as possible. Larry Venden, our Service Manager, loaded up supplies and 3 other guys and took a road trip out to Crawfordsville, about 4 hours from our home office. Within 2 days of arriving on the site, the modular building was complete.
This particular building was unique with its application as a control room. The modular office was built on a raised platform with computer flooring to allow for electrical to get to the building.
No matter when or where, our team is able to install equipment faster and more effectively than the competition. We are thankful to Porta-King for the opportunity to show that even though we’re a small, local, Iowa company, we can perform at a national level.
