Harcros Chemicals, Inc.
60 days for initial project with ongoing support
What they Needed
Harcros Chemicals, Kansas City, KS, manufactures and distributes industrial and specialty chemicals for customers in the United States. Its campus is far reaching and has many buildings located throughout. Its alarm notification system had become antiquated. With safety foremost in its mind, Harcros looked to Sound Products to convert their system to a digital network for the entire campus, providing both emergency notification and paging.
- Converted system to a digital network over fiber optics to provide emergency notification and paging campus wide.
- Retrofitting surveillance cameras to Avigilon high definition IP and migrating to new fiber optic network.
Sound Products worked closely with Harcros to define the parameters of the project in terms of signal coverage and camera locations. Once the scope of the project was complete, the installation commenced.
As the Harcros complex is an operating facility, Sound Products is challenged with keeping the installation not only safe, but unobtrusive to the production process and workforce. We coordinated with Harcros to determine optimal work hours.
Harcros has a ongoing maintenance support agreement in place. On a monthly basis, Sound Products tests equipment and repairs or replaces any defective devices.
