ARCO/Murray Completes New Plant for Alsco

KYLE, Texas — ARCO/Murray recently completed construction of a 96,000-square-foot, build-to-suit laundry facility for linen and uniform rental company Alsco here, the national construction company reports. 

This is Alsco’s largest new plant in the United States and its first ground-up project since 2014. 

The facility includes a new 9,000-square-foot office, 6,500-square-foot mechanical room and a 9,000-square-foot second-level mezzanine. The exterior walls are concrete tilt construction with an interior clear height of 28 inches. 

ARCO/Murray says the equipment was provided by a mix of vendors, including washroom equipment by Milnor and Ellis; rail by Ryco and Kannegiesser ETECH; soil counting by Automation Dynamics; finishing equipment from JENSEN, Leonard Automatics and Tingue; and dryers from Ellis. Ludell and Norchem supplied the mechanical room equipment. 

The project was completed and turned over to Alsco 10 days ahead of the contracted completion date. ARCO/Murray’s Justin Hearld was the project manager with David Rogers serving as the superintendent.
