Motion Industries Inc., recently broke ground at the site of its planned shop facility in Irondale, Alabama.
When completed, the $11.2 million, 104,000 square-foot building at 2721 5th Avenue South will house Motion’s area fluid power shop, hose and rubber shop, and engineering department.
“Along with the advantage of operational streamlining and efficiencies, the building and the shops within will feature world-class processes, equipment, and safety advantages,” the company said in a press release. “Capabilities will include fluid power component repair and fabrication, power unit fabrication, machining, hose kitting and assembly, and engineering design.”
Motion, a distributor of maintenance, repair, and operation replacement parts and a provider of industrial technology solutions, announced the project in October 2020. It is expected to complete in the third quarter this year. Motion officials said the new facility will create 15 new jobs while retaining 13.
