ENR Names Aschinger in it’s ‘Top 600’ National Specialty Contractors

The national construction industry trade publication, Engineering News Record (ENR),has ranked four St. Louis National Electrical Contractor Association (NECA)contractor members among it “Top 600 Specialty Contractors”. The ranking can be found in the Oct. 22, 2018 cover story, “The Top-600 Specialty Contractors”  In its annual listing of the top specialty contractors nationally, ENR ranked Aschinger 436th,  up from 459 in 2017.The ENR cover story article accompanying the ranking noted a robust construction market.   “As a group, the Top 600 generated revenue of $124.04 billion in 2017, up 10% over the $112.72 billion in 2016, and a 23.5% hike from $100.43 billion the year before. Top 600 revenue now has risen for seven straight years.”
“For St. Louis NECA contractors, service comes first as part of a disciplined approach to growth,” said Doug Martin, executive vice president, St. Louis NECA. “Some have strengthened their practice through merger and financial partnerships while others are broadening services and strengthening proficiencies through additions to engineering and project management staff.”  
This year, Aschinger merged with St. Louis NECA contractor Briner Electric Co.  Both companies are more 100 years old and will operate under the Aschinger name.
“Our joint annual training investment of $3 million with our NECA partners ensures our contractors always have the most skilled and safe workforce for all projects,”  said Frank Jacobs, business manager International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1. “That includes continuing education and an education partnership with St. Louis Community College to offer college degrees.”
This dedication to keeping pace with the growing complexities of electrical and communication installations has made the IBEW/NECA Electrical Connection partnership an important resource for economic and workforce development in Missouri.  The Electrical Connection serves on the Missouri Governor’s Workforce Development Task Force, the “Talent for Tomorrow” program and the “Best in the Midwest” economic development strategic planning initiative.
“Our NECA contractors and the skilled IBEW workforce they employ are a great asset to Missouri’s future business development because all that is changing with technology,” noted Jim Curran, executive vice president, Electrical Connection. “We are on the forefront of smart technology and infrastructure that is creating greater value in the built environment.  That includes building automation, smart manufacturing, smart roads, smart cities and other advanced electrical and communications infrastructure powering our future.”

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • “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.”

     

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

  • 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.
  • “Our diagrams were a hodgepodge of pieces.  Aschinger looked at our building and gave us a complete set of one line diagrams.  Before, when we had an issue we could grab the pieces but we weren’t even sure if they were right.  Another good thing was their analysis and maintenance recommendations.”

  • “We were quite pleased with Aschinger.  Our previous infrascan company wasn’t nearly as thorough.”

  • “I just received a phone call from Brian Sword at Gander Mountain to tell me how happy he is with the Fenton install. Please let Aschinger know that we appreciate their efforts. Nothing better than getting this type of call, especially with the eyes on this one. This is a team effort from design, engineering and implementation to make this happen.”
