Aschinger Electric merges with Briner Electric Company

Aschinger Electric merges with Briner Electric Company

From the St. Louis Business Journal:

Aschinger Electric has wrapped up its merger with Maryland Heights-based Briner Electric Co.
The combined entities will operate under the Aschinger Electric flag, boosting the Fenton firm’s 140-member workforce with 24 employees and growing Aschinger’s client pool. Both companies have relied on workers from International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1 for projects, Aschinger President Emily Martin said.
The merger has been in the works since June when brothers Mike and John Fogerty approached Martin with the opportunity, she said. Financial terms were not disclosed.
“The families have been friends for three generations. Mike says he’s known my father, Eric, longer than his brother,” Martin said.
Briner Electric Co. has been in operation since 1895 and is the second-oldest member contractor of the National Electrical Contractors Association. Briner’s projects include the renovations of St. Louis County Library branches.
The additional staff from Briner will enable Aschinger to grow revenue. It reported $44.4 million last year and is expecting to exceed that for 2018, Martin said.
Aschinger will continue its focus in solar, with the upcoming addition of 2 megawatts to Washington University’s campus.
In Missouri and Illinois, the number of electricians is slated to grow 10. 2 percent and 7.4 percent, respectively, through 2026. Nationwide, it’s projected to grow 8.9 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics.

  • “Monte took the time to fully explain the current situation to me so I could pass along the details to Ameren. He was extremely patient as I took notes…Monte was so helpful and friendly & I just want to let you all know!”

  • Your foreman was irreplaceable in assisting us prepare for the event in the week preceding it, as well as helpful in setting up generators and other electrical equipment the morning of the event. He worked closely with our own staff electricians, and ensured that the event electricity was provided as safe and aesthetically pleasing as possible.
  • “Aschinger delivered a beautifully designed and installed process control network…. A truly professional installation leveraging 21st century technology that will reliably support our automation efforts for the next 20 years.”

  • “The experience with Aschinger Electric has been a pleasure with positive results.”

  • “Last week when I was on site I had a chance to talk with two of your electricians, Denny and Rich Butteiger.     I was talking to them about the project and specifically the work they were doing (which was awesome).   It was great to hear them talk with passion and pride about their work.  We also talked about safety and that they saw being safe as much a part of their work as the work itself.

    Again, we appreciate the safety attitude and quality of work that Aschinger puts in place every day.”

     

  • “We’re writing to commend the quality of service provided to Union Avenue Christian Church by two members of your organization.  Frank Laks and Adrian Ellis worked together to solve an exterior lighting dilemma that has plagued our facility for many years…(they) took great care of our century-old building, providing a solution that was implemented with professionalism and attention to detail.”
