According to TED magazine, electrical contractors had it pretty tough this past winter. But that environment is beginning to change right along with the weather.

States like Pennsylvania, are gearing up for the more active summer months. “Being based in Central Pennsylvania meant our business was pretty flat

throughout this past winter,” says Bruce Seilhammer, an electrical construction group manager. “We were able to keep all of our guys busy, but nothing really ‘wild’ in terms of heavy workload or new projects.”

Seilhammer is optimistic about the upcoming months. “We’re seeing a couple of large projects hitting us, which is nice,” he says. “We’re also adding to our backlog. That’s a big difference over the winter months when we were going week-to-week with virtually no backlog of projects at all.”
