Meet Joel
I have been in the electrical field for 17 years and started my own business in 1999. I love what I do, and bring a very creative edge to this business. I am certified and trained in design build and engineer many projects. I am highly qualified in programmable controls, control systems and lighting design.

Meet Jenny
I have a legal secretary degree and trained as a paralegal. I am currently the office manager and do everything from answering the phone when you call to bidding out your project for you. I am a great multi-tasker and have developed a system to get it all done in a day. I love a challenge and use my research skills to make sure the fine details aren’t forgotten.

Meet Kristi
I was born, raised and currently reside in Forest Lake with my family.  I have several years of customer service and office experience working in the construction industry.  My daily activities include answering phones, scheduling, answering questions and accounts payable/receivable. I excel at researching information and love investigating to get the best answers on products/details for our customers.
