Puckett Machinery Headquarters

Puckett Machinery, the sole sales and maintenance provider for Caterpillar in central and southern Mississippi, values customer service. So when Puckett decided to relocate their facility, they reached out to CDFL to design and create a facility with the customer foremost in mind.

To do this, CDFL designed a headquarters with large-scale open spaces. Sweeps of glass were positioned to allow maximum controlled daylight into employee and customer spaces for a more pleasant and healthy environment. To further enhance the customer experience, CDFL matched exposed steel, concrete and industrial-inspired lighting with warm woods to evoke strength and warmth.

Finally, one of the most important aspects of the design was streamlining Puckett’s facility to allow for customers to engage in equipment maintenance when needed. By understanding the sequence of Puckett’s maintenance operation, CDFL designed a service department to increase efficiency and collaboration.
