This past Saturday night was TEC Corp’s 21st Annual Awards Banquet. The banquet was held at the Marina Inn in South Sioux City, NE. Approximately 380 people attended this year’s banquet, making this the largest banquet ever for TEC Corp.
The evening started with a cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and was followed by a buffet with a variety of entrees. After the dinner was served, the awards banquet started with opening comments by Skip Perley, CEO of TEC Corp. The theme of the Awards Banquet was “WOW”. It has been a tremendous year for Thompson Electric with a 57% growth in annual revenue, a 43% increase in man hours and the largest backlog (work under contract) ever for Thompson Electric, making this past year, “WOW”, what a year.
Awards were also given out for Years of Service for Thompson Electric with 35 people being recognized with 5 years or more of service and also for Years of Safety without an incident with 68 people being recognized with 5 years or more of Safety without an incident. Both of these Award recognitions are a “WOW”, and a big thank you.
Overall, the 21st Annual Awards banquet was a great success, with an opportunity to meet a lot of great people (employees and spouses) that makes Thompson Electric a very special place to work. We look forward to making 2014 another “WOW” year, bigger and better than ever and seeing everybody next year at the 22nd Annual Awards Banquet.
