Electrolux, a global leader in household appliances and appliances for professional use, recently constructed a state of the art 750,000 square foot facility in Memphis, TN. Built as a multi-use campus, the building will house a plant built to manufacture built-in and specialty cooking products as well as a research and development center, designed to simulate a product’s lifetime usage and performance expectations and able to test up to 380 products at one time.
The Electrolux plans include employing 1,200 people on the 790-acre campus. Access, egress and parking for employees plus visitors, as well as shipping capability required a 73,000 square yard pavement area. Lehman-Roberts Co. used over 20,000 tons of hot mix asphalt to complete the job in 3,500 man-hours.
