EDiS tapped for $175M rebuild at Del. car plant

"EDiS, the Wilmington- and West Chester-based construction business that's been operated since 1908 by five generations of the Italian-immigrant DiSabatino family, has been named general contractor for Fisker Automotive's renovation of the former General Motors-Saturn plant in Stanton, just outside Wilmington, Del., writes the Wilmington News Journal here.

The US-loan-funded, $175 million rebuild of the plant, just west of Wilmington, Del., into an electric-car factory over the next year and a half.

EDiS is also working on the former Chrysler plant in Newark, Del., where the firm is building a bio lab for the University of Delaware.

EDiS, which has completed generations of building projects for the DuPont Co. and du Pont family projects, is one of several building and maintenance firms run by DiSab cousins in the area. Over the years it's developed ties that make it a builder of choice for government and industry clients in the Brandywine Valley."
