Taco Tops Off Steel Structure
Of New Innovation & Development Center
Construction of Taco's new Innovation & Development Center entered its second phase recently with beam raising and topping off ceremonies at Taco headquarters in Cranston, RI.
Company President & CEO John Hazen White, Jr. was joined by family members, Taco employees, and the crew of Ajax Construction of Harrisville, RI, as the Innovation & Development Center's structural steel frame was completed and the final "topping off" beam, which was signed by all of Taco's employees, was laid in place.
The Innovation & Development Center is the centerpiece of the company's $18 million expansion project, set to be completed next year. The Center will consist of a 24,037 square foot addition to the current building and include a state-of-the-art learning and training environment, complete with new classroom spaces, conference rooms, a business center, and functional labs for testing and teaching.
