BIRMINGHAM, AL — Motion Industries, Inc., a distributor of MRO replacement parts and a premier provider of industrial technology solutions, recently held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of its planned shop facility in Irondale, AL. The address is 2721 5th Avenue South.
In attendance were company president Randy Breaux and senior vice president of distribution, inventory and operations support Joe Limbaugh; along with Irondale’s mayor and representatives from the Birmingham Business Alliance, Brasfield Gorrie and Graham Co. The socially-distanced event was held to officially kick off the first stages of construction, already underway.
When completed, the $11.2 million 104,000 square-foot building will house Motion’s area fluid power shop, hose and rubber shop, and engineering department. Along with the advantage of operational streamlining and efficiencies, the building and the shops within will feature world-class processes, equipment, and safety advantages. Capabilities will include fluid power component repair and fabrication, power unit fabrication, machining, hose kitting and assembly, and engineering design. The structure’s design was planned under the new Motion industrial design and décor standards, according to Mr. Limbaugh.
“This project continues our excellent partnership between Brasfield Gorrie and Graham Co.,” said Mr. Limbaugh. “These two companies also did a fantastic job with the recent headquarters renovation. At this property, we’re making excellent progress, and while it’s early, we’re ahead of schedule.”
