Paceco Moves Headquarters To New Gulfport, Miss., Plant
Paceco, Inc., a subsidiary of Fruehauf Corporation, recently completed its headquarters move from Alameda, Calif., to Gulfport, Miss. Paceco, a major designer and manufacturer of container handling cranes, has invested over $26 million in expanding and improving its existing 100-acre Gulfport facility. The underroof fabrication area has been doubled and now covers 450,000 square feet (more than 10 acres) including a new 58,800-square-foot air-conditioned machine shop.
The fabrication area is connected by rail to Paceco's new 38,650-square-foot environmentally controlled metal preparation and coating facility and is within walking distance of Paceco's new three-story headquarters building. The plant, located on the Harrison County Industrial Seaway, is one of the largest and most modern plants of its kind.
Activities at the plant include heavy steel fabrication of container handling, bulk handling, and heavy lift cranes for onshore and offshore application, as well as contract manufacturing and fabrication for the offshore industry including complex subassemblies requiring sophisticated machining capabilities. Currently, there are 720 Paceco-designed cranes in operation in more than 120 ports worldwide.
Paceco licensees are located in Japan, Korea, Canada, Italy, Africa, England, France, Australia, Brazil, and Spain.
Paceco's new address is: Paceco Incorporated, West Seaway Access Road, P.O. Box 3400, Gulfport, Miss. 39503-1400.
