Arrow Truck Sales, an esteemed name in the trucking industry with a presence spanning from the East to the West Coast of North America, specializes in the buying and selling of semi-trucks and trailers. With a commitment to facilitating a hassle-free experience for its clients, Arrow Truck Sales offers fair trade-ins for old vehicles, ensuring customers can seamlessly transition to newer models.
Located in Bolingbrook, Illinois, Arrow Truck Sales operates as both a dealer and a maintenance facility for semi-trucks and trailers. Through normal operations, the building had slowly accumulated damage and wear, with the exterior showing significant signs of neglect.
A comprehensive refresh was imperative to restore the facility's operational efficiency and aesthetic appeal. The scope of work included the application of a three-coat Proptective Industrial Polymer (PIP) floor system to address the extensively oil-soaked floors of the maintenance shop, painting of the exterior and interior walls, man doors, and a crane within the facility that had developed rust over time.
Decision Driver and Timing
A combination of accumulated filth, a dated and damaged exterior, and the need for a specialized application to treat the oil-soaked floors were the primary drivers for this maintenance project. The timing was optimal as the transition between maintenance technicians provided a window for a full maintenance shop refresh without disrupting ongoing operations.
Scope of Work
- Application of a specialized 3-coat PIP floor system on the maintenance shop floor to address oil saturation issues.
- Painting of the exterior and interior walls and man doors to rejuvenate the overall look of the facility.
- Repair and painting of a rusted crane in the yard to extend its service life and improve its appearance.
- The exterior walls, showing signs of prolonged neglect, required not only fresh paint but also essential repairs to revive the facility's façade.
Specialized Floor Treatment
Given the severe oil saturation on the maintenance shop floor, a specialized application process for the floor epoxy was executed. This ensured not only an aesthetically pleasing finish but also enhanced durability and resistance to future oil spills.
The maintenance refresh was strategically timed to coincide with a transition period between maintenance technicians. This careful planning allowed for comprehensive restoration work to be carried out without hindering the facility's daily operations.
Close collaboration between the client and the contractor was pivotal in successfully executing the maintenance project. Understanding the client’s needs and the facility’s operational dynamics enabled the planning and implementation of a restoration approach that addressed both aesthetic and functional requirements.
All maintenance and restoration work was conducted following strict protocols and guidelines, ensuring a safe environment for both the workers involved in the project and the employees of Arrow Truck Sales.
The successful completion of the project significantly improved the facility’s aesthetic and functional aspects, meeting the client’s expectations and requirements. The specialized treatment of the oil-soaked floors, in particular, was a highlight, demonstrating the contractor’s capability to address and resolve complex maintenance challenges efficiently and effectively.
