The Low Voltage Systems team in the Des Moines branch recently completed a job with Dairy Farmers of America located in Allerton, Iowa. Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) is a new customer to Commonwealth Electric and Communications. DFA is a dairy cooperative that works with over 12,500 dedicated family farmers. Each DFA Dairy location is a family-owned and family-run business that commits to preserving their farm, land, and communities. This plant in Allerton produces milk-based dry infant formula for large companies in the United States. Commonwealth is honored to be part of the bigger picture with DFA as they continue to serve their communities.
Clint Bailey was the Project Manager with Jake Belcher as the lead Low Voltage Systems Technician. This project included structured cabling, access control, and surveillance camera systems. Due to the unique environment, much of the cabling was installed using rigid aluminum and PVC-coated rigid conduit systems. Therefore, a team from the Electrical Division of Commonwealth installed conduit systems in advance of the low voltage systems. The electrical team consisted of Serouan Ngan and Jose Garcia. Jake and his team went above and beyond to ensure the customers’ requests were met through the quality of work that Commonwealth continually offers. Clint, Jake, and the team involved with this job have since developed a lasting relationship with Dairy Farmers of America that has already led to additional cameras and a video intercom system!
