AAS IS DOUBLING MANUFACTURING CAPACITY


Advanced Architectural Stone (AAS) is doubling the production capacity to custom design and manufacture architectural precast stone and Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC).

AAS is planning this increase in production in two phases: phase one is an expansion to the Mesa Precast plant in Tempe (AZ), followed by second phase to augment manufacturing capabilities in its Ft. Worth (TX) plant.


Phase One: Tempe, AZ Plant (Mesa Precast)

AAS has used Mesa Precast plant in Tempe (Phoenix) for strategic manufacturing and design support for GFRC and architectural wet-precast products.

  • Mesa has expanded to a second facility adjacent to the current plant in Tempe. This has doubled the production space available for customer projects.
  • Staffing has been increased by 25% as well as an increased management team.
  • Mesa production planning and management systems have been enhanced and integrated with AAS enterprise production management systems.

Phase Two: Ft. Worth, TX Plant (formerly known as Advanced Cast Stone)

 

The Ft. Worth plant is the largest of AAS plants. With this phase of expansion, AAS is aiming to provide even stronger support and flexibility to customers nationwide.

  • The expansion is increasing production space by 25%.
  • New inventory control system is implemented to improve tracking and control all three types of stone panel products used in a customer project: cast stone, wet-precast, GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete).
  • Implemented new manufacturing line producing wet-pour cast stone.
  • AAS is also adding GFRC manufacturing capability to the plant in Ft. Worth, TX in this expansion phase.

 


Alex Campolo, CEO of AAS: “This expansion of our production capacity is a strategic investment that is going to not only enable us handle more complex customer projects efficiently, but also help cut down lead time for the delivery of products.”


“Our design, manufacturing system has been refined over time to work closely with customers on every phase of the project. The new inventory control system will further provide more precise control and traceability simplifying job site management. “, added Tim Michael, VP of Business Development.
