The Athens, Ga. facility marks Gray’s second project for Caterpillar. Gray recently completed an 850,000 s.f. design-build CAT manufacturing plant in Winston-Salem, N.C. that manufactures surface mining truck axles. Currently, Gray has several large projects that are underway or recently completed including: a Michelin Earthmover tire manufacturing plant in Starr, S.C.; a Siemens gas turbine plant in Charlotte, N.C.; a Whirlpool plant in Cleveland, Tenn.; a Roxul insulation manufacturing facility in Byhalia, Miss.; a Drax Biomass wood pellet storage and shipping facility in Port Allen, La.; and multiple projects for Austal USA in Mobile, Ala.
