Conveyor Racking System

Goodhart Sons, Inc. was contracted by a consumer products supplier to perform turnkey fabrication and installation of a structural racking system. The project scope consisted of providing shop details, fabrication, powder coating, delivery to the job site, and installation of over 15,000 parts ranging from structural steel, weldments, and conveyors. We installed approximately 4,500 free rollers, head rollers, and tail rollers, as well as associated bearings, belts, motors, and drives. Additionally, Goodhart Sons served as the project coordinator, and subcontracted and managed the civil portion of work.

The overall schedule for this project was extremely aggressive. Our fabrication and installation teams worked together to sequence the components for installation, and also worked with the plant to schedule crucial shutdowns so that we could tie into the existing equipment without impacting the overall production schedule of the existing equipment. Our customer was extremely satisfied with our project team execution as the project was ultimately delivered on time and within budget.


As project manager for a recent $4MM equipment installation at a remote location, I relied heavily on Goodhart Sons. They efficiently completed their scope of work during COVID restrictions.  I appreciate how well Goodhart adapted to schedule delays due to material shortages and supply chain issues while controlling costs. The equipment was designed remotely in Europe with Goodhart providing fabrication and assembly.  Due to travel restrictions, the European design team was not available to travel to U.S. during fabrication and assembly.  In spite of the lack of direct supervision from designers, Goodhart delivered a high-quality installation.  Goodhart’s on site foreman not only kept Goodhart’s scope moving but also helped me as an additional on-site eyes and ears for daily project issues.  Goodhart’s staff worked seamlessly with other project resources such as the system designers, electrical contractor and plant maintenance and operations staff.
