Keer America Corporation
Two years after Keer Group began running production lines in its first manufacturing facility outside of China, the textile company initiated Phase 2 construction at Keer America's 165-acre site in Lancaster County, South Carolina.
McCrory was awarded single-source responsibility for the multifaceted Phase 2 expansion — a 270,000-square-foot highly automated production facility and two associated warehouses. Difficulty factors include the construction of 7,000 linear feet of cast-in-place concrete underground air-duct tunnels.
This significant design-build assignment was led by the same project leadership team who delivered Keer America's inaugural production facility and headquarters building on an accelerated schedule.
With the addition of the second production facility, Keer America is able to offer an expanded product range. Like its counterpart, the new facility utilizes advanced technology to process high-quality American cotton into spinning yarn. In both cases, the end product — yarn for weaving and knitting — will be finished in China.
