Northern Safety Co.
New Distribution Warehouse and Corporate Office Facility
The original 90,000 square-foot facility, designed and built for Northern Safety Co., was completed in December 1998. The Butler Manufacturing Company pre-engineered building consists of a two-story Office Building and a Distribution Facility. The office building is 15,000 square-feet per floor, with an E.P.D.M. rubber roof system, architectural masonry, light gauge steel, aluminum strip windows, and an E.I.F.S. wall system. The distribution facility is a 60,000 square-foot Butler "Landmark 2000" long span structure with a 31 foot eave height. The roof system is Butler's MR-24 standing seam with an "Elaminator" insulation system and "Shadowall" wall panel. The facility was designed for future expansions up to (3) times the initial phase. Other features of the project include a "Super-Flat" warehouse floor, E.S.F.R. sprinkler system, automated conveyor and racking systems and a two-story open entrance atrium. We returned in 2000 to double the size of the warehouse bringing the total building area to 150,000 square-feet.
Northern Safety Co., a national safety products mail order company established in 1983, has grown from a single delivery truck selling first aid kits to this national full-line safety products company that will employ (200) people at the new facility.
