In 2016, the National Park Service assigned the Manufacturing Solutions Group the considerable task of crafting a Turf Protection System for the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. The project came on the heels of a $40 million renovation of the National Mall, urging the NPS to protect this fresh, national green space. MSG’s expertise in handling large-scale tooling and molding projects made us an apt choice for this vital venture.

Immediately plunging into this grand undertaking, we perceived it as an excellent opportunity to highlight our comprehensive skillset, spanning from conceptual design, through tooling, to actual manufacturing. The task promised to encapsulate our proficiency at handling high volume projects within stringent timelines and to bring a product from inception to completion.

Operating within a tight five-month deadline, we knew there was no margin for slip-ups; success was imperative on our initial attempt. Consequently, we crafted panels, each spanning eight square feet, from robust polypro and nylon materials. In total, we manufactured a million square feet worth of panels to shroud the National Mall. It was essential that these units were not only easily manageable but also tough enough to prevent any harm to the Mall’s grass.

Our endeavours culminated in a high-quality finished product, delivered within the stipulated timeframe, much to the delight of the customer. This endeavour underscored our prowess in undertaking massive projects within a rigid deadline, manifesting our reliability and dedication.

In 2016, after completing a $40 million renovation of the National Mall, the National Park Service faced a new dilemma: how to protect this freshly revitalized national treasure during the massive public gathering for the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. The sheer volume of people expected to attend posed a considerable risk to the Mall’s pristine condition.

Given the scale and complexity of the task, the National Park Service needed a partner with a proven track record in large-scale manufacturing projects. MSG’s reputation for managing complex tooling and molding tasks efficiently made it the go-to choice for this high-profile assignment.

Understanding the gravity of this venture, MSG immediately employed its comprehensive skillset, ranging from conceptual design to tooling and final manufacturing. Working within a non-negotiable five-month deadline, the team decided to produce panels made from robust polypro and nylon materials. Each panel measured eight square feet, and the total coverage area amounted to a staggering million square feet.

MSG successfully delivered the Turf Protection System within the tight deadline, surpassing the expectations of the National Park Service. Not a single blade of grass on the National Mall was harmed, thanks to the durability of the panels. This project served as a testament to MSG’s ability to undertake and successfully complete massive projects on time, substantiating our reliability and commitment to quality.
