Engineered as if someone’s life depended on it because it does
How do you stay on top for ten unpredictable years? Adaptability. Lintel re-imagined the placement of mechanical, electrical and structural systems to avoid rework down the line, while maintaining required redundancy in backup systems, yet still improving overall performance efficiencies.
As regional experts, it was up to Lintel to figure out how to meet international standards for performance, humidity, temperature, particle count for a clean room and numerous other client demands. J&J gave us the numbers, but Lintel Design Intelligence created the road map to get there. The final design provided J&J with its highest worldwide return-on-investment ever. Even though initial investments were recouped ahead of schedule.
The medical manufacturer built on the revolutionary idea of sterile sutures and bandages to treat wounds needs an impeccable plant to produce catheters for the worldwide market – requiring manufacturing and hygiene standards never seen before in Mexico. As well, it had to be ready for expansion – while staying state-ofthe-art for at least a decade.
20% faster than anything J&J had previously done and even at that speed, Lintel exceeded the client’s in-house per-man-hour safety standards. Ultimately, the Lintel/J&J partnership produced three separate buildings during three distinct phases. Subsequently the three ere integrated into one structure -but we challenge anyone to identify where one began and the other ends.
With Lintel, Johnson & Johnson was able to reduce its systems commissioning/validation times and start production ahead of schedule. And the project’s entire duration – from ideation to delivery – was reduced to less time than J&J had spent on previous projects of the same size, worldwide.
“The professional advice, support and experience Lintel has provided, helped us gave our plant building the image our company was looking for when we decided to establish in Mexico”.
Mitsui Kinzoky Act Mexicana
What happens when you’re everything they’re not looking for?
The automotive door-locking systems manufacturer was making its first foray into the Western Hemisphere. And they knew exactly what they wanted: to build where we don’t yet have a park, on a perfectly flat lot (virtually unheard of in this part of the world), and by all means with a Japanese contractor, even if it cost them more. Lintel had the know-how. But how do you change corporate culture from the opposite side of the planet?
Thinking includes listening. We heard a client with an impeccable reputation for precision who didn’t want to fix what wasn’t broke. Fair enough. But as we started the research and numbers crunching, we saw that Lintelligent thinking enhanced client outcomes and reduced bottom-line expenditures. Locating at Lintel’s Las Colinas Guanajuato property offered an abundant, eager workforce as well as enviable quality-of-life for both management and labor. Just as important, our solid knowledge and regional experience allowed the client to see the real advantages of terracing an irregular topography. Not least of all, our tight bottom-line was something Japanese competitors couldn’t match.
Terracing innovations, at first resisted, became a return-on-investment through cost efficient drainage and the plant’s high-profile siting. We replaced business-as-usual metal siding with cast concrete walls (another first for the client), to increase durability, reduce maintenance costs and provide superior aesthetics that matched Mitsui’s prestigious corporate profile. No, you can’t put a price on beauty. But the built installation looks like a million bucks.
As walls tilted up, our clients came to appreciate the advantages of the design. Lintel flexibility meant an eleventh-hour request for no right angles in executive offices was easily accommodated. Even when we were hit with a government red-tape delay, our local knowledge and innovative solutions allowed us to comply with environmental regulations, keep bureaucrats and clients smiling, and provide an on-time, on-budget delivery.
The Bottom Line
Our clients come from all over the world to leverage the Lintel way for their most serious industrial investments. Then they reap the added advantage of Mexico’s labor market and dynamic climate for business.

Lintel was the obvious choice.”
