Partnership Highlight: Thompson Electric Company

September 14, 2017

For Kevin Lytle, vice president and general manager of Thompson Electric, commitment to your clients is more than just good business; it’s a necessary part of belonging to a community. Established in 1933 in Sioux City, Iowa, Thompson Electric has been part of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) for over 60 years and part of the Omaha community for over 21 years.

“We are a very diverse company that performs electrical, voice and data, security, and fire alarm installations in commercial, industrial, and large-scale residential projects,” says Lytle, which includes “replacing an outlet in your home to constructing large, multi-million dollar projects.”

Considering Thompson Electric’s client list, “home” could be a single-family residence, the dorms at Offutt Air Force Base, or the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s student housing in the fast-growing Aksarben Village neighborhood.

Thompson Electric is a proud member of Local #22 of the IBEW. To Lytle, who has been with the electrical contracting firm for 19 years, this means employing highly-skilled technicians with the best training and safety records.

It also means pride in a job well-done. Whether you are a home owner experiencing a problem and requiring a 24-hour emergency service call or a healthcare institution constructing a new research facility, Lytle says Thompson Electric will assemble a team of professionals to best suit your specific project’s needs.

“We conduct detailed project pre-planning sessions with our field leaders, vendors, BIM experts, and prefab managers to execute the best-valued plan as well as identify and resolve any problems that may impede the performance of the project before we actually start work,” Lytle states.

It’s part of the service that has grown Thompson Electric’s client base and made it a trusted Building Omaha partner.
