Ready to Help,
Even at 2:00 am

"I received a call from one of our customers at 2:00 in the morning. They burnt up some #2THHN wire in one of their dryers and needed to get their operation online again quickly. Heading down to our wire warehouse, we threw some new wire in the back of our freight liner and delivered it to their facility. I remember our customers waiting at the front gate, super excited to get back up and running."
