Do your plans for 2018 include a move into a new industrial plant? The new facility may be a substantial development for your company. It may allow you to increase capacity or production capability. It may give you more efficient distribution options to customers. Perhaps the new facility comes with access to a larger and more skilled workforce.
However, even if the new facility is a sign of growth and expansion, there’s no doubt that the actual relocation could be challenging. You’ll have to relocate and possibly reassemble complex machinery. You may need to halt production for several days. You might even need to manage a team of contractors as they transport your equipment and inventory.
