Burton Property Group recently announced it has completed an agreement on a joint development project with Stonemont Financial Group to construct Continental Motors Group’s (CMG) corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the project team and the major progress this brings to the region,” Philip G. Burton, president and CEO of Burton Property Group, said.

The new facility will consolidate operations for CMG from 11 buildings on 45 acres to two buildings situated on approximately 20 acres. The development is a strategic step by CMG to advance its manufacturing process. The total facility footprint will encompass some 275,000 square feet, with the majority of the site dedicated to engine and parts manufacturing.

“We are pleased to be partnering with Continental Motors, Burton Property Group and Clayco on this mission-critical project,” Jeff Berryhill, principal of Stonemont Financial Group, said.

Chicago-based Clayco Inc., the design-build firm contractor on the project, will begin construction immediately, according to a news release.

“We look forward to partnering with Continental Motors Group on the design and construction of their new manufacturing facility,” said Anthony Johnson, Clayco executive vice president and shareholder. “Our commitment to Continental Motors is to collaborate closely with their team to create a manufacturing environment that optimizes their quality, safety and productivity.”

The total project is expected to take 11 months, plus another year to fully move in. Once completed, the facility will consolidate all of CMG’s United States manufacturing.

“Continental Motors is excited to break ground on our state-of-the-art facility with the support of our partners, Burton Property Group and Stonemont Financial Group,” said Rhett Ross, president and CEO of CMG.
