Kellogg Co. is the world's leading cereal manufacturer and a leading manufacturer of many other convenience foods. Although the company began with only 44 employees at a facility in Battle Creek, Mich., where its headquarters remain, Kellogg's products now are manufactured in 18 countries and sold in more than 180 countries.
One of Kellogg's facilities, Kellogg de México, a cereal manufacturing plant in Queretaro, Mexico, began experiencing roof leaks in 2009, and the company decided the facility needed to be reroofed. Conley Group Inc., Irving, Texas, was hired as the reroofing project's consultant, and Steve Drennan, Conley Group's project manager, invited GRUPO CUBIMSA Professional Roofing Co., Chihuahua, Mexico, to bid on the project.
After attending a pre-bid meeting, GRUPO CUBIMSA Professional Roofing submitted its bid and won the reroofing project. The company was asked to tear off the facility's existing roof system to the concrete deck and install a protected polymer-modified bitumen roof system.
