Associated Food Stores DC Wins Safety Award

Associated Food Stores’ Farr West distribution center was recognized with the Highly Protected Risk Award from the insurance company FM Global for its dedication to protecting the facility from fire, natural hazards and other property risks while meeting high standards for loss prevention.

Every year the facility undergoes an audit by FM global, which also includes recommendations for improvements. For the second year in a row, Farr West received no recommendations.

Farr West’s Director of Facilities Maintenance Carl Jensen credits the distribution center’s success to the initial engineering as well as the support from the executive staff, maintenance technicians and safety team. “We couldn’t do it without everyone’s help,” he said.

The Salt Lake City-based wholesaler also was honored for its 30-year partnership with FM Global.
