Charlotte Pipe and Foundry’s Cameron plant kicked off its $10 million-plus expansion project with a groundbreaking ceremony July 23 at 2400 Blake Ave.
Charlotte Pipe opened in October 1981. The Cameron location currently has a staff of 33. The expansion will add 10 new full time jobs.
Building includes a 75-foot tall Compounder Building for pipe production.
Project involved rerouting the main drainage of the site around the new building. Project included a new rail spur was added to double the incoming product capacity, a new rail car building, a pipe bridge that runs up and over the existing rail spur to the storage silos. Three new silos were added and special 4′ thick pads were installed for their placement against the building. Additional product lay down space was constructed to the north of the new building for the storage of the new product. New trenches were constructed in the existing building to tie into the cooling water sump pit. This technology is used to cool the production line equipment.
