TOA (USA) Manufacturing Plant
TOA (USA) is a 224,000 sf auto parts stamping and welding factory. The Japanese family-owned corporation chose Mooresville for it’s first plant located in the United States.
Gaylor was responsible for all lighting and electrical components associated with powering the facility and high tech manufacturing equipment. The project took 16 months to complete and Gaylor invested 18,448 hours. The sheer size of TOA’s facility required a huge amount of electrical installations for the exterior and interior lighting and computer power distribution systems to connect the machinery and robotic instruments.
In addition to electrical lighting and power, Gaylor installed numerous specialty systems including a complex telephone scheme that required 60,000 feet of cable, a complete fire alarm system with 60 remote diction and alarm devices, a sophisticated sound/paging layout operating 20 ceiling speakers and 30 wall mounted horn speakers, a security access including card readers, cameras and a monitoring station, and a state-of-the-art videoconferencing for secure communications with the offices in Japan.
Gaylor completed this complex job with zero OSHA recordables and zero lost time accidents.
