Motion Industries, Inc., a leading distributor of maintenance, repair and operation replacement parts, and a premier provider of industrial technology solutions, held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of its planned shop facility in Irondale, Ala. In attendance were Motion president Randy Breaux and senior vice president of distribution, inventory and operations support Joe Limbaugh, along with local officials.

The event was held to officially kick off the first stages of construction, already underway. When completed, the $11.2 million 104,000 square-foot building will house Motion’s area fluid power shop, hose and rubber shop, and engineering department.

Along with the advantage of operational streamlining and efficiencies, the building and the shops within will feature world-class processes, equipment and safety advantages. Capabilities will include fluid power component repair and fabrication, power unit fabrication, machining, hose kitting and assembly, and engineering design.

The structure’s design was planned under the new Motion industrial design and décor standards, Limbaugh said.

“The main reason for the investment is to strengthen our position and provide the best customer service possible as our customer base and our company grow,” said Breaux. “We’re looking forward to the positive impact this operation will have—for our customers, our employees and our community.”

Announced in October 2020, the project is estimated to be completed in the third quarter of 2021 and will create 15 new jobs while retaining 13.
