Additional Culture Details

The company has grown exponentially over the past several years. You can talk about the number of divisions we have added over the past few years (I believe you have those dates in your marketing stuff). We have grown to be the 39th largest electrical contractor in the US. Given the nature of this growth, we have added a lot of new technologies to our business models that have made our culture one of continual learning and adapting. Throughout this pattern, we have maintained the small company feel even as our payroll has increased well beyond the typical “family” shop. Our company is constantly giving back to the team by offering a lot of extra activities to show appreciation like Family Night at the Ballpark, Family Morning at the Movies, Employee Holiday Party, Employee Golf Outing and the Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon to name a few. Our company also continues to be more and more innovative by coming up with new processes and service offerings. We have also expanded geographically and opened an office in Des Moines IA in recently months.... Read more
