Lightning Source LLC Grand Opening!
Lightning Source hosted a Grand Opening Ceremony for their new facility renovations on September 18, 2019.
Lightning Source is one of the world's leading print-on-demand providers and part of the Ingram Content Group, headquartered in La Vergne, TN. The Jackson facility is the company's fifth U.S. Facility and 8th worldwide.
As Design-Builder, Forcum Lannom Contractors was tasked with converting existing warehouse space into conditioned, humidity-controlled space for printing operations. These building modifications included firewall separations, new electrical service and distribution, equipment utilities and 250 Tons of air conditioning and humidification systems. In addition, the facility was retrofitted for current energy, occupancy, and building code requirements. With an aggressive start-up schedule, Forcum Lannom Contractors worked closely with the Lightning Source team as well as their equipment suppliers to ensure all milestones were met and start-up achieved on time!
The renovations will allow the company to increase its global print-on-demand production capacity to meet the growing market needs and will invest $22 million while adding nearly 150 jobs in Madison County over the next three years.
Forcum Lannom Contractors has completed projects for Ingram Distribution Group in Tennessee, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. We enjoyed working with Ingram again as the Design-Builder for this Lightning Source project.
