Pope Architects attended the annual event and celebrated the recognition of Vomela and its new 300,200 sq. ft. facility in St. Paul.
Vomela has been a fixture in St. Paul since 1947 and has been one of the fastest-growing companies in Minnesota in recent years. They decided to maximize efficiency by consolidating operations through redevelopment of a former 3M site on the Saint Paul Port Authority’s Beacon Bluff site. This 300,200 sq. ft. facility consolidates multiple locations into a modern and efficient environment for Vomela that combines administrative functions, design and production services, and a customer experience centerpiece. The design prioritizes function while meeting the complex code demands of a modern manufacturing space. Much of the space is humidified, and special attention is being paid to optimizing departmental adjacencies, and the flow of materials to and through the new facility.
