FedEx Conveyors


Fire Protection Services for Conveyer Systems & Shipping Facilities in the Des Moines Area

Two new dry pipe sprinkler systems were added in order to protect the bottom of a new conveyor system for FedEx in Grimes, Iowa. Ahern prefabricated the 224 sprinkler heads for the 20,000 square-foot expansion and was asked to provide additional work for the customer after their commissioning. All fabrication loads were delivered on time, which contributed to the project being completed on schedule.
