Roeslein continues construction in Iowa

Roeslein & Associates is working with global can making client Silgan Containers on the construction of a Greenfield can plant in Burlington, Iowa.

Roeslein will provide a full turnkey scope of work including site design, civil engineering, building construction and site development in addition to the modular integrated process systems the company has been building for more than 25 years.

It will manage local contractors on site for the building construction, as well as prepare necessary permits and licenses for the building process.

Modular fabrication of the plant’s integrated can line systems will take place alongside Roeslein’s 375, 000 square foot fabrication facility in Red Bud, Illinois.

Rudi Roeslein, CEO, explains: “Before we started offering building construction services, we would find that we were finished with the can line and ready to install the system, but the building wouldn’t be ready yet. It was a factor we couldn’t control. Naturally, it makes sense for us to spearhead the building process to run alongside the unitised plant fabrication so that our customer would have more control over the project schedule. The goal was to start making cans faster and we can do that.”
