Fox Factory is a leading provider of specialty shocks and suspension components for racecars and off-road vehicles. The customer tasked Willett Engineering with the challenge of designing a new facility that could expand their manufacturing capabilities while also bringing the full production process under one roof.
Willett designed a vertically-integrated 350,000 s.f. greenfield facility to house the company’s headquarters and manufacturing operations—including anodizing, pre-assembly, full assembly, and shipping. The structural design includes a large office mezzanine, anodizer room, clean rooms, truck canopy, and fuel storage area.
Willet Engineering coordinated closely with architects, equipment manufacturers, and mechanical coordinators to design a facility that could seamlessly fulfill the customer’s full range of required functions. As a result of the new design, Fox Factory has been able to expand its manufacturing capabilities—eliminating outsourcing in the production process and creating over 800 new jobs.
