Industrial Electric Manufacturing (IEM) Selects Standard Controls for Ashburn Site


Dallas, Texas – July 17, 2011 –Switchboard manufacturer IEM awarded Standard Controls, Inc. a contract for the product engineering, wiring, UPS interface, and functional testing of 48 base OEM UL 891 structures for the DuPont Fabros SC1 data center located in Ashburn, Virginia.  Standard Controls was also selected to integrate an additional 156 structures for the project.    The first set of fully integrated and tested switchboards is scheduled to be on site in early November.
