Madison, WI (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
BouMatic, the largest U.S. based, globally operating dairy equipment manufacturing company, celebrates the construction of New Holland Pavilions at the Alliant Energy Center (AEC).
Following a groundbreaking ceremony held Friday, April 11, the $24 million expansion – 290,000 square feet of state-of-the-art multi-use space – will replace the AEC’s aging barn facilities, strengthening the center’s reputation as a quality host for events with significant regional and statewide economic impact.
At the conclusion of this year’s Midwest Horse Fair, the backdrop of Friday’s groundbreaking, the AEC’s aging barn facilities will be demolished to make room for construction of the new pavilions.
The New Holland Pavilions project will create an estimated 200 local jobs and is anticipated to be complete in time for the 2014 World Dairy Expo in October.
Continuing its long-standing relationship with Alliant Energy Center and World Dairy Expo, BouMatic will provide the newly constructed pavilion with a new 2 by 12 walk-up parlor for milking cows during World Dairy Expo and Dane County Fair. The new parlor includes two BouMatic 2000 gallon Glacier Chill Milk Tanks, a new energy efficient Glacier Chill Chiller system, BouMatic’s Touch Point and SmartControl meters for cow side management, BouMatic's Evolution pulsators, FloStar MAX claws and Magnum M liners. Once construction is completed, exhibitors will get a chance to experience the performance of BouMatic’s innovative equipment.
In 2014, BouMatic celebrates 75 years of helping dairy farmers harvest milk gently, quickly and completely. The company serves dairy operators in more than 45 countries and employs 400 people worldwide. Its global headquarters are in Madison, Wisconsin, USA.
