Meals of the Heartland



Ahern’s knowledge of warehouse and storage facilities made this West Des Moines, IA project go off without a hitch. With complete understanding of how the space could be utilized, Ahern installed a new wet and dry system in the 20,000 square-foot facility complete with 138 prefabricated sprinkler heads, which were fabricated in Ahern’s own shop. All of the shipments from Ahern’s shop were delivered on time and the project was completed according to the customer’s expectations.
