Cherokee, Ala. — EMCOR Group Inc. has announced that its subsidiary Shambaugh & Son has received a contract to design and install the fire protection system for National Alabama Corp.'s new rail train manufacturing facility here.
Shambaugh & Son will provide 51 sprinkler systems, 18,000 sprinklers and 80 fire hose stations linked to 250,000 ft. of steel pipe and an underground water delivery system for the 1.8 million sq. ft. facility.
“This project for National Alabama Corp. is yet another example of our ability to help protect the important facilities that support the country's infrastructure and commerce — we continue to see fire protection systems projects emerge across the country, both from a retrofit and new installation perspective,” said Mark Shambaugh, CEO of Shambaugh & Son. “Due to its degree of customization, this work with National Alabama is ideally suited to leverage our strengths, as it gives us the opportunity to maximize our prefabrication capabilities combined with the application of local installation to insure the optimum outcome for our client.”
