The EMCOR Government Services unit won a contract from the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing for its Western Currency Facility located in Fort Worth, Texas. EMCOR Government Services (EGS) will be responsible for 24/7 support of the underlying infrastructure at the facility, including its fire and life safety system, building automation system, central chiller plant, water treatment, UPS systems, generators and vertical transportation. EGS will also oversee several unique industrial systems, such as industrial shredders, compressed air systems, and vacuum systems.
