Representatives from Ball Corporation contacted Campbell Construction in July of 2015 to discuss how Campbell could assist them with a Design-Build project which would house a new can printing line. John Campbell, CEO for Campbell Construction and Jeff Stevenson V.P. of Business Development for Campbell Construction visited Ball Corporation's corporate headquarters in Colorado in September of 2015 and were subsequently awarded a contract to design and build the addition. Butler Manufacturing will be providing the pre-engineered steel package on the project which broke ground in December of 2015. When complete in August of 2016, the facility will total 181,000 square feet. The new space will be utilized to install a production line to cut, coat and paint steel coils for food and aerosol cans. Total investment costs for building and equipment were estimated at $32 million.
