CCL Tube, a division of CCL Industries, will relocate its central Los Angeles manufacturing plant to a 101,340 sq. ft. Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certified building beginning in early July 2008.
Under construction now, with final build-out scheduled for July, the Watson Corporate Center-Carson is a LEED-certified building that offers sustainability, energy efficiency, environmental responsibility and exceptional indoor ecological quality while using valuable energy, water, material and land resources more efficiently.
LEED buildings are said to be kind to the environment, use renewable and reclaimed materials, and provide healthy, comfortable and productive indoor spaces, at the same time reducing energy costs, landscape maintenance costs and increasing employee productivity.
The building features a two-story office, high-end architectural glass foyers and a 32-foot warehouse clearance height. Beginning in July, CCL Tube will run simultaneous manufacturing operations and anticipates a final move-in by end of September 2008.
CCL, in cooperation with its machinery partners, will install the first of several newly-purchased, highly efficient, high-speed tube production lines thereby increasing CCL’s annual output by another 50 million.
