There are approximately 75,000 companies in the electrical, low voltage, and renewable energy industry across the United States. However, just 3,700 of those companies are members of the Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC), Inc. TriStar Electric is happy to announce that are one of the 3,700, having recently joined IEC Chesapeake, the Mid-Atlantic chapter of IEC.
“Many contractors and builders recognize the IEC logo and it provides a certain level of status and shows our dedication to improving our company and employees,” said TriStar Electric co-owner Dave Crawford.
Founded in 1957, IEC is the industry’s premier national trade association, comprised of approximately 90,000 electric workers and 10,000 apprentices, and 3,700 member companies. As a member, TriStar will be able to take advantage of IEC training programs and more easily stay current on the latest industry standards.
“Tom [Pountnay] and I feel that this is the best way to train and groom our up-and-coming employees, as well as provide training for our existing more experienced group of field workers,” said Dave.
IEC Chesapeake offers courses, seminars, and a four-year apprenticeship program that TriStar will be sending select new helpers to starting in November. The IEC also offers management and leadership seminars, which TriStar plans to utilize. IEC members also have access to new HS grads and job core trained new hires that have gone through rigorous training.
All in all, joining IEC Chesapeake will help TriStar improve the education and training of its employees while also improving the services we provide. At TriStar Electric, we strive to provide each client with the best possible customer service. Joining IEC Chesapeake is just another part of that pledge.
We are dedicated to providing unsurpassed quality and excellence to every one of our clients.
