Industrial & Retail: Manufacturing

With an extensive resume including projects for companies such as: Fender, Shurflo and Nutro, Fullmer is prepared to meet any manufacturing building’s needs. Expertise in functionality and intense electrical and mechanical needs makes Fullmer uniquely prepared to work for you.

Manufacturing Featured Project

The development of Nutro happened through a close partnership between the developing and contracting team to complete two adjoining facilities. The development process was challenging as it involved the integration of state-of-the-art equipment used for the manufacture of dog food products. Fullmer used its value-engineering and close management of its budget to ensure that the project ran smoothly.

Manufacturing Sample Projects

Fullmer completed a new 43,357 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for State Pipe and Supply in Rialto, CA. Situated just off the 210 freeway with excellent visibility from the eastbound lanes, the building houses the extensive operations of West Coast Spiral Pipe, State Pipe’s fabrication and coating division where steel water pipeline systems are manufactured for municipalities, water districts and other public and private agencies. The plant is capable of producing pipe from 16” to 120” in diameter.

The facility includes nearly 4,000 square feet in tenant improvements adjacent to the operations area; the modern office space includes three executive offices, conference room, accounting office, sales and engineering work area, computer room, two employee break rooms and a large laboratory for quality control testing and reports. Inside the manufacturing area, features include 32’ clear height, two roll-up doors and a vast array of intricate machinery. The clear span roof structure allowing the 32 ton and 10 ton cranes to travel the full length of the building, and the floor has various levels, pits and trenches to accommodate the large machinery and extensive electrical and control wiring. The process takes rolls of steel and runs them through a mill machine which bends it in to a spiral cylinder and welds it inside and out. Other processes include machines for finishing the ends, hydro-testing, and a detailing and repair area.

The offsite portion of the project included beautiful landscaping lining the property along the architectural site walls that border the facility. Extensive street and utility improvements were done along Casmalia Street and Locust Avenues, further improving a quickly developing section of the Inland Empire’s 210 industrial corridor.

The 180,162 square foot Jellco Container Facility is located in Anaheim, CA. Situated near the 57 and 91 freeway interchange on a nearly 10 acre site, the building is strategically located in the center of the Southern California supply hub. The state-of-the-art manufacturing and shipping facility features environmentally friendly construction, as well as superior accessibility and functionality only surpassed by its Commercial and Industrial appeal.

The building offers 10,000 square feet of office space including a vast mezzanine overlooking the warehouse. Warehouse features include 32’ clear height, 26 dock-high doors, four grade-level doors (two with interior dock and two drive-through), ESFR sprinklers and LED lighting inside and out. The fully-secured 117’ truck court offers ample truck parking, including a separate trailer stall area stretching 340’ from the building, houses a trash enclosure, and is polished off by a portion of the new landscaping inside the surrounding concrete screen wall.

Site features include nearly 15,000 square feet of beautiful new landscaping surrounding the site, as well as hybrid storm water retention and underground treatment “wetlands” modules. Abundant parking includes a separate employee parking lot at the Northeast corner of the site, with 297 stalls provided overall, including 9 electric vehicle charging stations. 

Fullmer constructed Lot 13A of Global Access, a master planned 8,500 acre transportation hub in Victorville. Located minutes from the 15 freeway, Fullmer developed the project with development manager Stirling Development as part of the 2,500 acre master planned industrial portion of the complex, known as the Southern California Logistics Centre, which is conveniently located adjacent to the Southern California Logistics Airport.

Lot 13A, the first of numerous buildings buildings completed at SCLA by Fullmer, is a 296,000 square foot concrete tilt-up warehouse. Built for bottle manufacturer Plastipak Packaging, the plant uses plastic blow molding technology to produce bottles for an adjacent Dr. Pepper bottling facility, which Fullmer also completed the tenant improvements for. 

The building is Gold LEED certified; Fullmer worked with the owners to help them achieve this certification by managing the building process. 

One of the earlier manufacturing projects Fullmer had the opportunity to work on was for Fender guitars in Corona, CA. The 151,562 square foot tilt-up allowed Fullmer to build the manufacturing facility, an outdoor paint storage area and complete all related site work.

This was a three building campus project totaling over 230,000 square feet of manufacturing, research and design and corporate office space. The campus is exposed to two major streets in Cypress and the unique exterior design along with a very contemporary lobby and office space create interesting design features within a very functional work space. The center courtyard along with the building to building walkway canopies help to create a park like setting for employees to mingle in the relaxed atmosphere.
