Digi-Key Electronics Product Distribution Center Expansion
McShane Construction Company added 2.2 million square feet of multi-level distribution space to Digi-Key’s existing 800,000-square-foot distribution center. Large enough to fit 22 football fields, the facility incorporates 17,000 tons of steel, 1,860 pieces of precast concrete and 20 miles of conveyors. In addition to manufacturing and assembly space, the facility includes shipping and receiving docks and airlocks, multiple breakrooms, employee engagement areas and site walkways to encourage fitness. A 328′ steel bridge connects the expansion to Digi-Key’s current headquarters.
Throughout construction of the project, McShane worked closely with Digi-Key to ensure the delivery of a world class distribution center, enabling Digi-Key to deliver products quickly and efficiently. This process involved implementing value engineering solutions, such as an alternate building structure of structural steel, to save time, money and provide a superior final result.
Digi-Key is a worldwide distributer of electronic components and has earned its reputation as an industry leader through its longstanding commitment to service and performance.
