AIG to Break Ground for New Building

Jim Buchan announces that AIG will pick up the site permit for their new building on Monday, and will have a ground breaking ceremony at the property on Tuesday at 3:00. The building location is approximately 5965 S 6th Way Ridgefield WA.

The building will have 86,000 square feet of steel fabrication manufacturing space and 10,000 square feet of office space.

Their steel fabrication is fully automated CNC and serves the industrial and commercial construction markets in the western United States.

Explanation of CNC from Wikipedia:  In modern CNC systems, end-to-end component design is highly automated using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programs. The programs produce a computer file that is interpreted to extract the commands needed to operate a particular machine via a post-processor, and then loaded into the CNC machines for production. Since any particular component might require the use of a number of different tools – drills, saws, etc., modern machines often combine multiple tools into a single “cell”. In other cases, a number of different machines are used with an external controller and human or robotic operators that move the component from machine to machine. In either case, the complex series of steps needed to produce any part is highly automated and produces a part that closely matches the original CAD design.

Buchan Development is the owner of the facility which will be leased to Alliance Industrial Group, Inc and its subsidiary Alpha Iron Inc. Owners of Buchan Development, Alliance Industrial and Alpha Iron are Jim and Lisa Buchan of Vancouver Washington.

Please give a warm welcome to this new company in Ridgefield.
