Our company was founded in the year 2000 by two co-workers at a local electrical firm who were restless in their jobs and ready for a bigger challenge. One of the partners had significant skills in administration, marketing and electrical estimating - the other had strong on-the-job technical skills and knowledge. Between them, starting with a pickup truck, one panel van, some tools, and boundless enthusiasm, they built a small and scrappy electrical contracting firm.
By 2007 the partners had built a solid customer base by concentrating on a mix of service work and larger, longer-term projects, and had acquired more employees. By this time the administrative partner was ready to down-size his demanding work schedule and have more time for family by starting a smaller firm on his own and going into semi-retirement. A financial agreement was made and the other partner took over sole control.
We won't talk about that - except to say that we survived! - Unlike so many, many small businesses who faltered during those horrible years.
We are grateful for the work that comes our way from many of those first customers who have trusted us over the years and continue to use our services. In addition we are enjoying embarking on some larger commercial projects with newer customers.
We don't plan to become a huge, complicated enterprise. Relationships, among ourselves and with our customers, making a decent living, and being able to laugh at ourselves (see below!) - is what we are about.
