One of the projects currently underway with Derrick Building Solutions is Jerry’s Towing at their headquarters facility in Roberts, Wisconsin. The new expansion area consists of more than 23,000 sq. ft. of space that will add to the truck service facility and a three-story office addition. The truck service facility project is a Butler pre-engineered building system. The office expansion will include conventional steel, as well as brick, block, and pre-cast concrete panels. The project broke ground in December of 2019 and is expected to be completed in July, 2020.
This company expansion project has been in the works for some time and it includes spaces to grow several areas of the business.
- Truck & Trailer Repair-the new expansion area will increase the shop to include 12 bays.
- Showroom-Jerry’s Towing builds and sells NRC brand wreckers and equipment and the expansion project will grow the showroom for sales as well as the parts warehouse.
- Office-Operating as the headquarters for eight locations the new office space includes a focus on centralizing dispatch and other support operations for all the Jerry’s Towing facilities.
- Training Center-A new third floor training center is currently under construction which will hold 150 individuals. This space will allow Jerry’s to host National WreckMaster classes and hands-on sessions throughout the year.
“We have been working on planning this expansion project for a while, and we have enjoyed working with Derrick Building Solutions both during the planning and construction process,” said Joe Waller, Operations Manager at Jerry’s Towing. “Being a locally grown company ourselves, we also like the fact that we can work with another local company on an expansion of this size and quality,” he added.
When asked about the project, PM Chad Derrick said, “Every project includes details that are more than meets the eye and this project for Jerry’s Towing is a perfect example that is more than a simple space expansion. This project is thoughtfully planned to provide space to grow and advance their company and their industry overall. Projects like this give us an opportunity to show clients that Derrick Companies is more than a building contractor, but a partner in their business growth and planning.”
