Calhoun Super Structure is taking the business’ engineering capabilities to the next level, with its newly completed 10,000-square-foot production plant expansion in Goderich, Ont., Canada. The fabric-covered building manufacturer invested approximately $1 million in the expansion, which broke ground last July.
The new addition allows Calhoun to add about 40% more jobs across material handlers, welders and office staff. This energy-efficient facility includes LED lighting and sustainable welding machines to streamline manufacturing operations, increase eco-friendly business practices and keep up with rising customer demands.
“Calhoun is a family-owned business committed to delivering top-quality, innovative fabric building solutions to customers. From initial concept discussions to project completion, we look forward to the opportunities this expansion will bring to the business and our customers,” said Dan Dalzell, Director of Sales and Operations.
To celebrate the completed expansion, Calhoun will host a public open house event on June 9 for the local community to tour the plant, enjoy a food truck on-site and listen to live music from Owen Sound band, The Little Bigheads. Calhoun is also offering media an exclusive guided tour of the plant, along with the opportunity to ask business representatives questions on-site; would you be interested in attending?
Calhoun specializes in designing, engineering and manufacturing innovative fabric structures throughout North America. The business has advanced expertise in developing agricultural structures, sand and salt storage, warehousing facilities, fertilizer storage and more.
“We’re not only excited about the capabilities this expansion brings our company, but also the positive impact it has on the Goderich community, including new jobs. We’re celebrating 30 years of business this year, and the expansion will allow us to manufacture reliable building solutions for many more years to come,” said Jeremy Calhoun, Chief Executive Officer and Owner.
To commemorate its 30th anniversary, Calhoun is implementing various activities throughout the year, including an ongoing 30:30 Cancer Fundraiser – aiming to raise $30,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. This effort honors Eloise Calhoun, a key contributor to the company’s founding, who passed away in March 2004 due to breast cancer.
The company that began by selling 30-by-70-foot fabric structures for agricultural storage has now installed over 9,000 diverse projects worldwide, with over 36 dealers in North America. From Calhoun’s strong dealer network to its production plant expansion, the business will leverage the last 30 years of manufacturing expertise to deliver quality, novel structures.
