Aristeo, one of Ford’s ABF strategic suppliers with a long history of safe and high quality projects, managed the comprehensive renovation and equipment replacement of the Ford Motor Company Woodhaven Stamping Plant, originally built in 1964. For this project, Aristeo accelerated the removal of decommissioned stamping equipment, and then rearranged, modernized and prepared the existing 2.6 million square foot facility for new press lines, ancillary manufacturing process and automation. Aristeo was responsible for all aspects of the program from coordination of the design with the architect/engineer, to site preparation and installation.
This program included nearly 100 unique projects and over 300,000 manhours. Aristeo drew on our collective knowledge and experience to provide unique solutions for completing major construction projects with little to no impact on production. This also involved leading significant collaboration between all project teams including subcontractors and other partners. Thanks to Aristeo’s detail-oriented safety program, this 24-month project was finished on schedule with an excellent safety record of zero lost time.
