Founded in 1995, Novae designs and manufactures utility and cargo trailers, as well as lawn, garden, and agriculture equipment. Novae Corp. is North America's third largest utility trailer manufacturer. Briner's first project was a new 67,000SF Manufacturing and Production facility located in Markle, IN. In 2020, Briner completed the Novae Shipping Center, which consisted of two buildings, one 16,000SF and the other 24,000SF. This included a 30 acre site development and the project was completed in eight months.

Our business was expanding and we needed additional manufacturing space to meet our anticipated growth. We were aware of Briner Building, Inc. and heard of their design and construction capabilities. Our building site had inherent difficult soil conditions and we had a very specific date for building occupancy. Working as a design build contractor team, we, with Chris Elser, Dave Dunwiddie, and Briner Building together exceeded our expectations. I look forward to continuing our building relationship with Briner Building.
