IAC to Design & Build National Cement Terminal in Dickson, TN

MISSION, KS – Industrial Accessories Company (IAC) has been awarded an EPC contract to design and construct a new bulk storage cement terminal, located in Dickson, TN, for National Cement of Alabama, Inc. IAC will provide complete EPC services including engineering, equipment fabrication and supply, equipment installation, concrete foundations, and construction through IAC’s wholly owned subsidiary Adelphi Construction LC. The project has a contract completion date of Jan 31, 2023, however IAC anticipates improving the completion date because the company self-performs foundations, silo erection, mechanical installation and automated controls supply.

The facility will include rail car transfer and pneumatic conveying, a 2000-ton storage silo, truck loadout with drive-thru scales, operator control room, MCC and automated controls, PLC/HMI customized systems, and dust collection systems.

In addition to the equipment and construction, IAC will provide all engineering aspects including structural, mechanical, and electrical.

“As National Cement expands their presence in the Southeastern US, we are pleased to have been chosen by them to design and build this important distribution terminal in Dickson, TN,” said Glenn Smith, IAC Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “IAC has long history serving the Cement industry including the construction of numerous terminals around the US. Because IAC is the equipment OEM, and we self-perform the construction, we can build complete terminals faster than other contractors. We’re confident this new terminal, using advanced control systems, will meet our customer’s requirements for throughput, reliability, and low maintenance for many years.
