In July 2013, John F. Martin & Sons, a Lancaster County-based smoked meat manufacturer, began major renovations of the former Valley Forge Flag Company building in Womelsdorf. The new building will allow expansion of production.
ESCO recently installed fire protection, security, access and alarm monitoring solutions. The fire protection system and surveillance cameras needed to be waterproof so that production areas could be easily cleaned. Fixtures rated for outdoor use were used.
A control panel allows John F. Martin & Sons to monitor 4 separate areas: boiler, refrigeration, smokehouse and water. If there is a problem in any of those zones, an alarm will automatically be relayed from the system to a master control panel.
