Industrial Construction

With the automobile industry choosing Alabama and the Southeast as home base for their manufacturing plants, W. S. Newell & Sons, Inc. has had the opportunity to serve as site contractor to several parts facilities that manufacture components for the nearby auto plants. Some of the facilities are: Mobis, Mando, Daeki, Hanil, Halla and Seohan Auto USA.

The Distribution Centers for Wal-Mart, Jo-Ann Stores, both in Opelika, as well as the UPS Package Facility, in Montgomery, were constructed by Newell. The Wal-Mart site was 130 acres with more than 1.3 million cubic yards of mass grading.  More recently in 2020, Newell was awarded the site grading package for the new Ben E. Keith Food Distribution Facility in New Brockton, AL.

Newell was the site contractor for two new lumber facilities: Westervelt Lumber in Thomasville and Rex Lumber in Troy.  Both sites consisted of approximately 100 acres with more than 1,000,000 CY of mass grading. Another manufacturing facility Newell was proud to work with is the James Hardie Facility in Prattville.  Both the Hardie and Westervelt sites included railroad spurs for product shipment.
