THK Manufacturing of America

THK, a world leader in linear motion products, completed construction of its 283,000 square foot leading edge manufacturing expansion in Hebron, Ohio.  To expedite occupancy, this design-build project required a “fast-track” approach.  Constructed in 11 months, the THK facility houses 220,000 square feet of manufacturing, 42,000 square feet of office, and 21,000 square feet of warehouse space.

Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc.

Ruscilli was named as Honda of America’s construction manager for its one million square foot automobile manufacturing plant expansion — the “EX” project. This automobile assembly plant expansion project comprised 1,170,000 square feet with a value of $371 million while “wrapping around” 1,000,000 square feet of existing production area.

Of this, 415,000 square feet of the new facility is dedicated to automobile painting production lines for both Honda Accords and Civics. This includes all system feed lines from the various paint component storage tanks and HVAC system used in the painting area to ensure that temperature and humidity are controlled within the guidelines required for proper paint adhesion to metal surfaces.

At the mid-point of the expansion, Ruscilli was also named Construction Manager for Honda’s $59 million, 170,000 square foot Plastics Injection Plant.

During this activity, the productions lines continued uninterrupted. Ruscilli also helped Honda revise existing production lines to accommodate assembly of Honda’s Civic, in addition to the previously produced Accord model.


This new 355,000 square foot distribution center consolidates four existing facilities into one centralized location in order to better serve the needs of its customers.

In addition to warehouse space, the new facility offers 24,000 square feet of office and a 5,000 square foot automobile testing laboratory. The building is composed of conventional structural steel, single ply roof and precast load bearing walls.
