College Station Manufacturer Announces Expansion That’s Design To Quadruple Production

A College Station manufacturer has announced a major expansion.

G-CON, which builds clean rooms for pharmaceutical and other medical companies, is adding 25,000 square feet at the Aggieland Business Park west of Easterwood Airport.

According to a G-CON news release, this will increase production of its “POD” superstructures from 50 to 200 a year and resolve bottlenecks in its operation.

There is no reference in the news release to whether this will increase employment, which is more than 100.

The expansion also includes a 2,500 square foot canteen that will include a full kitchen.

News release from G-CON:

G-CON Manufacturing, the leader in prefabricated, flexible cleanroom solutions, today announced the expansion of its manufacturing facility for POD superstructures in College Station, TX. Previously limited to manufacturing only 50 superstructures in-house and 50 superstructures per year through supply agreements, the expansion now allows construction of 200 POD superstructures per year, all produced in-house. The new production area features overhead cranes and an assembly line approach that allows for more efficient and safe production with better quality.

“Prior to this expansion, the lack of available space created a bottleneck for the G-CON College Station operation,” said Blake Williams, Vice President of Operations at G-CON Manufacturing. “The new 25,000 sq. ft. area was designed for and is completely dedicated to superstructure fabrication, relieving a bottleneck that previously existed in our production process. We are also proud of the fact that the new facility employs the safest, easiest, most robust method of fabricating units with the best in class overhead cranes, man lifts, welding equipment and safety equipment.”

As part of this project, G-CON also added a canteen for its manufacturing team giving them a place to relax during break and mealtime. The 2,500 sq. ft. canteen boasts modernized restroom facilities and a fully functioning kitchen for G-CON’s 100+ staff members.
