IB&M Awarded Mercedes-Benz ‘Project Gateway’ Plant Expansion


Vance, AL – Mercedes-Benz has selected Industrial Boiler & Mechanical (IB&M) to deliver and install a new Johnston 2500 HP low NOx hot water boiler for its $1.3B plant expansion project, giving the auto manufacturer over 6 million feet of building space when completed. The new construction will house a body shop for a yet unnamed Mercedes SUV that will eventually be built in Alabama. Construction of the new body shop is scheduled from summer 2017 to the end of that year.

“Having recently completed a successful expansion of similar scope at the same plant for Mercedes-Benz, I think it made sense to bring us in for this new project given our familiarity with the facility and equipment needs,” said IB&M President Randy Massingill. “We worked well together before, and we’re honored to have been selected for a repeat engagement with a world-class automobile manufacturer like Mercedes-Benz. It’s a great opportunity for us,” he added.
