This is one of our great experiences through our 85 years of electrical expertise submitted by Dave Hibler, Service Electrician at Thompson Electric Omaha.
Dave’s experience on a service call yesterday at a customer location we did work for 20 years ago. They identified us from the panel sticker that was put on by the foreman and placed a service call to our office.
Dave identified two positives from this experience:
- First, by putting the label on that panel 20 years ago the customer was able to identify the installing company and call us. Thus offering our team another opportunity to provide great customer service.
- Secondly, we are very proud that the work we did didn’t require any maintenance or repairs for 20 years.
Dave remarked. It was a great experience. The owner came up to me and pointed to the TE logo on my shirt and said to his wife see I told you it’s the same company. “It made me smile!”
Thanks for sharing Dave.
If you have any electrical panel stickers from Thompson Electric we would love to see them, please tag us.
In 2013 Thompson Electric, Electric Innovations and TEC-Corp moved into a 3 story building. Allowing all companies to operate under one roof including our prefabrication shop for Thompson Electric.
We have embraced the growth of our prefab in all of our locations. Each facility has increased their ability for expanding prefab for all our projects. Sioux City recognized the need for more room to meet our preconstruction needs.
The decision was not an easy one to make, separating the prefab from our office but the opportunity arose recently for a more cohesive space. The transition to the new Thompson Preconstruction Facility began last week.
Corey Floyd, Preconstruction Manager has worked hard to develop the opportunity for prefabrication to all projects. We are excited to see what the future holds!
Thompson Electric in Sioux City is expanding their industrial and commercial services to the Northwest Iowa area with a full-time service electrician. Tyler Walsh is a recent graduate of the Thompson Electric fLEX Program and is a welcome addition to Thompson Electric’s service department.
Our Sioux Falls team recently completed the Leadership Development class taught by Lisa TeSlaa. The course featured ways to increase productivity through managing priorities, mastering communication, increasing personal and team productivity/performance, goal setting/achievements and methods to help implement the lessons.
The course was taught every other week for 12 sessions in the Sioux Falls office. The 7 employees that attended were Chet Mehrer, Darryln Hamilton, Jeremy VanWell, Mark Tycz, Kelsie Thoreson, Mike Anderson and Lindsey Kovarna.
We are proud of the commitment made to achieve completion of the Leadership Development course.
Congratulations to all…

They have been looking for years and finally a building became available that meet the needs of Thompson Electric in Sioux Falls. The new office has 15,500 sq. ft. of which 4,000 is office space and 11,500 will be prefab and shop space. In addition, there is a 2 acre fenced in lot for vehicle parking, material storage and other needs.
The new office location is in the same general area of Sioux Falls as the previous office, with easy access from I-29. The new facility has the office space needed for growth and the space in the prefab area to continue the expansion of our prefab opportunities.
So, after looking for the right building for what seemed a very long time, it finally happened and Thompson Electric in Sioux Falls has a new home that will serve them for many years to come.
