Libbey, Inc. (NYSE: LBY) is the world’s second-largest glassmaker, and the company provides the world’s largest selection of tabletop products for foodservices and consumers.
This 646,000 SF distribution center consolidates warehouse and distribution services previously provided by six smaller buildings. The facility services the southeast and lower mid-western states, along with the company’s export business south of the U.S. and into Europe.
The new distribution center was built using tilt-up construction and was designed to be expandable to one million SF. It features ESFR fire protection, an aluminum panel system and special flooring that includes steel fibers. The building employs a single ply roof and 32′ clear span. Office space comprises 10,000 SF of the building; the rest of the facility houses product racks and 59 shipping and receiving bays. Bob Moore Construction served as Design / Build contractor for this project.
