The M.I.V. Story
Indicom Electric, the largest division of M.I.V., Inc., was established in
1987 to provide the highest quality electrical service to all industrial clients
in the metropolitan Chicago
market. Our initial focus was on the Fortune 500 companies and slowly expanded
to include service to the very small industrial client. It was our belief that
industrial electricians are very different from commercial electricians and that
providing highly qualified employees to our industrial clients would prove to be
beneficial to both parties. At the same time, we created a commercial division with
employees dedicated to this market.
Growing With Our Customers
We believe having two sets of highly qualified employees, one for industrial work
and the other for commercial work, is one of the things that sets us apart from our
competitors. In addition to these two markets we identified traffic signals and street
lighting as another customer need. Signal H Street Lighting
work demands an entirely
different skill set from that of the industrial H commercial electrician. In
1984, Van-Mack Electric was brought into the M.I.V. family to serve this market. M.I.V.
invested heavily in equipment for all three markets to allow us to serve our customers as
possible. The synergy of three distinct
divisions within M.I.V. allows us to give our customers a full compliment of
services, from parking lot lighting and office additions to new process controls, all
under one contract.
A Look Ahead
The current economic downturn has affected our business just like everyone else's.
Jobs are harder to get these days and the pricing has become highly competitive. Quality is
much harder to achieve as the dollars are not available in our customers' budgets for high quality equipment. More foreign equipment is being used by our industrial clients to lower prices, but much of this equipment does not perform as well and can compromise job quality. The challenge we face in the year ahead is to continue to increase our efficiency while remaining cost-competitive.
M.I.V. is committed to meeting this challenge without compromising the principles of quality and craftsmanship on which we were founded. We believe the market will continue to reward those who pride themselves
on providing the highest quality product to the market at a fair price. This belief provides the
framework for M.I.V.'s business plan and will ensure its steady growth in the years ahead.
