From Fabrication, to Technology, to Field, to Administration. Our world-class employee’s are the energy of Electric Innovations. We are a uniquely constructed community, forged together by our drive for excellence, our value for timeliness, and our down right intellect.
The Fabrication Team is driven by their love of all things metal, music included. Whether they are welding it or creating it, they are constantly pushing the lines and standards of their designs, delivering to our customers innovative consistent quality.
Motivated less by metal and more by automation, our Technology Team is a patient force. Their unequivocal attention to the detail that goes into the assembly of the dashboards and panels included in our PDC’s, reflects their drive for excellence.
Our Field team are our literal boots on the ground. On site from the beginning until the end, they are faithfully prepping, installing and starting each PDC unit.
Lastly our Administration Team. Where would we be without them? They are our i dotters and t crossers. The paper pushers who make sure the coffee is always stocked, bills are always paid, and whatever is needed is had.
Together we are contributing to the Biogas Revolution!”
