FCC Construction – Competitive Edge With 4-Year-Old PythonX
Based in Caledonia, Michigan, FCC Construction Inc. has been in business for over 60 years. Their expertise allows them to manage entire projects from blueprints to ribbon cutting.
FCC Construction is not your typical structural steel fabricator; they offer general contracting for entire projects, but their speciality is fabricating structural steel custom buildings. These complex projects present challenges in engineering, site access, tight timelines and coordination. They found themselves turning down jobs because manual fabrication was time consuming and prone to human error. FCC needed to fi nd a way to provide their customers with a higher quality product, more quickly and at a competitive price.
Since they performed most fabrication shop operations manually, using tools like saws and grinders, FCC Construction realized that the value that PythonX technology could bring to the business. They knew purchasing a PythonX would vault their capabilities above their competitors. Their production time is now cut in half and their productivity, in terms of tonnage, has almost doubled.
