Decision makers look favorably at contractors with excellent safety, production and quality track records. EC Company is continually working on improving what we do for our customers and for our employees," stated Randy Johnson, EC Company EHS Director.

Winners are selected based on their comparison to Bureau of Labor Statistics data and electrical contractors. This award considers five man-hour categories ranging from 1 to 25,000 man-hours to over 150,001 man-hours. EC Company was recognized in the largest hour category.
