Now in its 53rd year of business McClintock Electric has seen many changes. What started in 1963 as a small residential electrical contracting firm with two employees the company now averages 65 to 70 people on its payroll and has expanded its services to include large industrial and commercial projects. In addition to traditional electrical installation projects, McClintock Electric also has a Technology Division that engages in telephone systems, security camera systems; electronic door access systems and network infrastructure systems utilizing both copper and fiber optic cabling.
Recognizing that in order to stay relevant and safe in a highly competitive, constantly changing industry, 2nd generation owner and President Michael McClintock continually invests in his employees through ongoing safety and job specific training and educational courses. For example, 3rd generation employee Adam McClintock, who is also a certified EMT and 1st Aid/CPR instructor is currently giving classes to all employee’s for OSHA required 1st Aid and CPR. As another example, all new employee’s entering the trade are required to attend a four year apprentice training program incorporating OJT (On the Job Training) hours with classroom instruction on items such as electricity fundamentals, blueprint reading, proper use and knowledge of tools and equipment and safety. This program which is compliant with the Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship requirements for time-based training culminates with the employee becoming a certified journeyman electrician.
Continual training with a strong emphasis on safety ensure that McClintock’s customers receive a quality installation from a staff that is highly trained and safe.
In addition to benefiting the customer, this philosophy of continual education and training illustrates the commitment McClintock Electric has to its employee’s. “We not only want our people to be the best they can be in their trade, we want them to be safe so they can continue to do what is the most important thing in their life – be there at the end of the day for their loved ones.” states Michael.
On the home page of the company website is a quote from the President that says the following:
“Longevity in business doesn’t happen by accident. It happens by treating your employees and clients with respect and honesty coupled with quality craftsmanship and service. It’s really that simple.”
