Cavalier Produce Warehouse and Office Facility  

The new warehouse and distribution facility is approximately 25,000 square feet and fully refrigerated. Its location near the I-64 corridor is designed to allow the company to better reach the Richmond, Va., market.   Cavalier Produce had been in its previous building for 15 years.  The new state-of-the-art facility is equipped with a loading dock, control coolers, freezers, and is able to accommodate the company's 20 trucks.  It also houses Cavalier’s corporate offices.

The General Contractor, Tippmann Design Build, commented that this was the best experience they have ever had with an electrical contractor.  They decided to hire a professional photographer to take photos of the electrical installation throughout the building for future reference. – Justin Hewitt

Safety Memo

Notice

Southwire is recalling some defective voltage testers because they don’t work! 

I don’t think we’ve ever given any Southwire testers out, but the possibility exists that some might have one of their own.
