KBS Builders, Inc. (“KBS”) has partially re-opened its Oxford, Maine plant to manufacture wall panels for the New England market, creating a new business line for KBS.
Also, KBS is studying ways to increase its modular manufacturing output capability in 2021. Our new website was launched yesterday at www.kbsbuildersinc.com with updated content on the rationale for modular construction, a gallery of recent projects, as well as improved functionality for requesting a plant tour and contacting our sales team.
The Oxford plant, an approximately 90,000 sq. ft. facility, was idle when it was purchased by Digirad Corporation in April 2019. One of the ancillary buildings at this plant was recently retrofitted and upgraded in order to be able to produce structural wall panels.
Panelized wall assemblies standardize the construction process and give contractors cost predictability and a higher level of project control versus on-site construction. Production of structural wall panels for multiple clients commenced at this plant in September and deliveries are scheduled to be completed before year-end.
EdgeBuilder, KBS's sister company and a leading manufacturer of wall panels for the upper Midwest, provided design support and operational oversight for these projects.
