Project Description

East Penn Manufacturing, the maker of DEKA batteries, expanded their existing 100,000 SF factory in Corydon, IA, to include a new production line of lead acid batteries that will be started there and finished in another plant. East Penn Manufacturing produces batteries and battery accessories for cars, marine, industrial, agriculture, commercial, and other markets.

DSC crews built a new 208,000 SF addition, tripling the size of the facility and quadrupling their potential battery output.

Crews installed approximately 14,000 cubic yards of concrete in the foundations and slabs, 8,000 cubic yards of concrete for the parking areas, and 386 tons of reinforcing steel. Also included in our scope of work was installation of the insulated metal panel outer skin and roof membrane.
