Teamwork Through Collaboration!
In February of this year Meritus Construction met with Shapco Printing to discuss their pending move. We quickly realized the similarity of our respective corporate cultures in the realm of customer satisfaction, and finishing strong. That was the easy part.
Prepare a printing company whose culture is built around Customer Satisfaction and move 90+k square feet of operations, while continuing to operate their business, and to do it in two locations, with NO reduction of output or customer satisfaction. Oh, and be Earth Friendly while doing it……….
A firm demand by Minnesota’s Most awarded Printer.
Week 1 Main Press Floor
The new facility was chosen for the size and continuity of space. The infrastructure for a printing operation was non existent. All aspects of support services were needed to be installed and operational in a matter of weeks to allow for the migration of Shapco’s equipment. A Mandate From Joel Shapiro that All Equipment must be operational within days of arrival and sometimes within hours. To date we have installed approximately 3.7 miles of electrical, plumbing, air, and refrigerant services inside the building with multiple thousands of connections. All this in anticipation of receiving Shapco’s printing equipment. Multiple machines, multiple manufacturers, specs, and operational nuances, are being overcome as each goes by. Meritus/Shapco Team are in daily communication to complete the work, and to maintain the sanctity of fulfilling orders, including press checks.
