The company called on Gray when it was looking to expand on its existing campus. Gray provided services for a 50,000 s.f. pre-engineered, single-story metal building. This new facility serves as a palletizing warehouse for the bourbon.
For this project, Gray self-performed all site work, including the concrete foundations and slab.

Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making whiskey for more than 200 years, earning it the reputation of being the oldest continuously operating distillery in America. Sazerac, the parent company of Buffalo Trace, and Gray have partnered on multiple projects including the Buffalo Trace Distillery Bottling Facility & Warehouse and Buffalo Trace Distillery Mash House. This project for the partners involved the design and build of a new 84,267 s.f. distribution facility for Buffalo Trace Distillery.
InLine Engineers, a Gray company, completed a 10-year study to forecast demand versus production capabilities for a major bourbon producer to optimally time the expansion of its operations. The engineering study resulted in detailed designs for facility expansion as well as the construction of a new quality control lab. Project planning involved putting new production in place a year before the anticipated date when demand would exceed production.
