Again this year, Ahern took part in Project GRILL, a program started by the Fond du Lac Association of Commerce. Project GRILL pairs local manufacturers with area high school tech ed students in a yearlong project to design and build a working charcoal grill from scratch. The program was started in 2008 to expose high school students to careers in manufacturing that are creative, challenging, and rewarding. This year, Ahern was partnered with students from Winnebago Lutheran Academy (WLA).
Ahern's Special Hazards group has earned national recognition again in 2014. Ahern received the Top 10 U.S. Distributor award from Protectowire, a major equipment manufacturer. This is the fourth time Ahern has won this award, also having won in 2007, 2010, and 2013. “We have established ourselves as the leader in special hazard systems and services in our region with multiple manufacturers, which is a major differentiator from our competition,” stated Doug Lackey, special hazards manager.
To better serve its growing customer base, Ahern Fire Protection is relocating to a new and improved facility. Conveniently located at 601 SW 9th St. Suite B in Des Moines, IA, customers will continue to receive the same great response times, local accessibility, and quality service Ahern is known for.
Ahern’s new 9,426 square-foot facility features an office and warehouse, more than double the space of the old facility. The company plans to host an open house to tour the new facility which will be announced at a later date.
