Coastal Electric of Georgia, Inc. Hits Grand Slam!

RobbiesBy Niel Dawson
Little did Robbie Adams, President/CEO and Robbie Jones, VP/CFO (aka, “the Robbies”) know, that in less than 3 short years their new electric company would go from 0 to $1.5M, to over $5M in sales!
Both had worked for a previous electrical contractor for over 15 years, but due to business circumstances, they found themselves no longer employed.   Robbie Adams said that “finding ourselves out of a job was the push we needed and probably the best thing that ever happened to us.”
The 300% growth has not been an easy task, but now have 24 employees, 14 trucks and will be moving into their new 10,000 square foot office and warehouse sometime in 2017.  When asked what got them where they are today, their responses were “hard work, long hours, determination and the IEC.”  In probing more how the IEC helped them, it was the network they have built with other contractors in the Savannah market.  Robbie Adams served on the IEC Georgia Board from 2010-13 and Robbie Jones is currently serving on the board.
Their growth has also come from both word-of-month and social media referrals.  They believe in treating both their customers and employees right.  Providing their employees with the right training and top notch tools such as Milwaukee (IEC Partner member) are several ingredients to making them successful.
As for the type of work, they do residential and commercial service, new restaurants, hotels and multi-family units in NC, SC and throughout Georgia.  During the recent hurricane, they worked long hours helping business and home owners get their power back.  And more importantly, their rates for service did not change from their normal rates when most others’ rates skyrocketed.  
Whether it’s a helping hand to a veteran or a discounted rate for the elderly, Coastal Electric of Georgia, Inc. has a heart that is growing steadily in the Savannah market.

IEC Georgia Announces Its Chapter Territory Expansion

Expansion r
IEC Georgia’s Board of Directors expand the vison and reach of the Georgia chapter to include 14 additional counties. The process began on June 5th when the Board advised that the Tri-State IEC had dissolved.  After review and consideration of the chapter resources, it was determined that taking on all but a few counties in Alabama of the old Tri-State would be a good move for the chapter.  Then a request for chapter territory expansion was submitted to the National Membership Committee.  Finally we received unanimous approval from the IEC National Board of Directors at its board meeting on October 24th.  
IEC Georgia is comprised of 132 counties, now including the 9 counties from the old Tri-State chapter in Georgia and 5 from the old Tri-State chapter in Tennessee.  The Tri-State chapter was dissolved earlier this year, leaving a void in its area.  IEC Georgia has the resources to serve the previously abandon territory, and is prepared to provide the exceptional benefits IEC has to offer.   IEC provides online and onsite apprenticeship program, association and industry communication, government affairs updates, management education, manpower assistance, networking,  safety tools and resources, and membership growth incentives.  The Georgia Chapter travels to provide safety, code and other pertinent training to contractors in its jurisdiction.  The embrace of the 14 additional counties will increase IEC’s span and the impact of creating the best apprentices in the industry.
The new counties included are; Catoosa, Chattanooga, Dade, Fanin, Gilmer, Gordon, Murray, Walker, Whitefield in Georgia, and Bradley, Hamilton, Marion, Polk and Squatchi in Tennessee.  To the potential contractor members and potential partner members in the new counties, IEC’s doors are open and ready to serve.
