North Star Imaging Manufacturing Revamp
North Star Imaging (NSI), a digital industrial X-Ray manufacturer in Rogers, Minnesota, renovated the manufacturing area of their facility on the first quarter of 2017. NSI’s management and Operations team recognized that they needed to update their manufacturing facility to meet their long term growth aspirations. The changes planned would bring in extensive cost savings to their products and triple their capacity within the same building using the same resources. More importantly, the renovation would create a world class lean manufacturing facility.
NSI worked with the Randahl Construction team on the overall revamp of their manufacturing section. This included adding a paint booth to enhance the desired clean look and address any regulatory concerns. They also built a new space for their Service and their Engineering team for research and testing work.
Throughout the renovation, safety was put at the top of both NSI’s and Randahl’s concerns, so NSI’s staff and their visiting customers were advised to remain outside the construction zones and to minimize traffic in their new fabrication zone.
From the beginning, Randy and Jason were quick to respond and eager to help NSI achieve our objectives. Once the project began, the team was professional and courteous to our ongoing manufacturing of our precision product. Randahl Construction’s honest approach allowed us to meet our goals of tripling our capacity for a reasonable investment. It is satisfying to know that there is a local company that we can continue to partner with in the future.Jeremy Watkins | Project Manager
