Busy time at Thompson Electric…


It’s been a very busy time at Thompson Electric this summer.  There have been a lot of new hires, new offices and new business units for Thompson Electric.

First, we have hired a lot of very talented people to fill some existing positions and also for new positions.  The new positions are Human Resources – TEC Corp, General Manager – Thompson Specialty Services, Office Administrator – Thompson Specialty Services, Administrator Coordinator – Thompson Electric in Sioux City and a new Assistant Service Manager in Sioux Falls and Omaha.

Thompson Electric in Omaha moved into their new office location over Memorial Day and are still getting settled in, while Thompson Electric in Sioux Falls has purchased a new building with the anticipation of moving sometime in September.

Also, we officially started Thompson Specialty Services as its own business unit.  TSS will service and develop new business with arc flash, infrared thermal imaging, preventive maintenance, solar energy and many other opportunities that are being worked on and developed.

Finally, all three offices are extremely busy with work.  So, you can see it has been a busy summer at Thompson Electric and looking ahead, the future looks just as busy.


MikeP-4C-SM Thompson Specialty Services group started with Infrared Thermal Imaging, then added Arc Flash Risk Assessment.  A couple of months ago, Sustainability was also added into the Thompson Specialty Group.  Sustainability will be led by Mike Pendergast, who worked for Thompson Electric as a service electrician for about 5 years.

Mike will be responsible for all aspects of sustainability, starting with expanding the lighting retrofits for all types of businesses, but also including Solar Power, Wind Power, Battery Back-up systems and other types of renewable energy sources we are still investigating.

As technology continues to change at a rapid pace, Thompson Electric also needs to keep pace.  By adding Sustainability, we are positioning ourselves as a leader for providing and installing renewable energy equipment and systems.  This is all part of the strategic growth plan for Thompson Electric and we look forward to the continued growth of Thompson Specialty Services.

For today, we welcome Mike to the Thompson Specialty Services team.
