Context Design Group was hired to provide programming services to evaluate existing production facilities, current status, and determine optimization opportunities to streamline existing operations and add production capacity without adding square footage.


Our team developed a conceptual design to redistribute existing work cells within existing shell and add approximately 40% increase in volume to overall plant capacity.


The result of this study led to the decision to build the new production facility in Newton, North Carolina.


In order to provide the added capacity, we evaluated opportunities to minimize WIP and recommend sizing for offsite logistic facility to support planned production.
