Nicos has successfully completed more than 300 projects involving cleanrooms of all sizes and types, from very small to very large projects and from lower classes up to ISO 8 (Class 100,000).
Nicos is currently working with Michigan based GC on a new cleanroom and dry room facility project for a large automotive brand. Based in Michigan, this is their newest battery manufacturing plant, with the targeted completion date in late 2023. We hope to be able to share more details when that project is completed.
