Preciball, the world leader in the manufacture and supply of industrial ball bearing products, opened its North American distribution center in Pooler, GA. The 40,000 square foot facility, near the Port of Savannah at the Westside Business Park, will distribute ball bearings, which are mostly manufactured in Belgium, across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The structure incorporates office suites and warehouse space. Preciball will occupy about half of the facility, with remaining space leased until the company's future expansion requires the space. Key features include the building’s high-efficiency warehouse lighting and HVAC equipment, as well as dock-high loading doors and dock levelers. The warehouse space has wide clear-span truss construction and translucent paneling throughout to optimize natural lighting.
The Dewitt Tilton Group has been recognized by Star Building Systems with a 2016 Master Builder Award for this Preciball building project.
