Indicom Electric Company

 

Our Inception

Indicom Electric 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. Indicom Electric invested heavily in equipment to allow us to serve our customers as effectively as possible. The expertise and technical skills within Indicom allow 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. Indicom Electric 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 Indicom’s business plan and will ensure its steady growth in the years ahead.

Indicom Electric was born and bred out of industrial environments,
and was established to serve those needs.

 
 
 

On October 1, 1992, Indicom relocated its main office to Joliet, Illinois. The purpose of the relocation was to consolidate the company to one central warehouse and office site, thereby streamlining operations and increasing efficiency to better serve our clients. At this time, our name was changed to Indicom Construction and Engineering Company. This was done so our customers would be aware that we are focusing our attention on our industrial client base. We provide a complete line of engineering and design build services. We are now able to develop concepts for new projects, evaluate the customer’s needs, design the installation, procure cost estimates and provide project management through a “turnkey” contract.

We offer all the advantages of an “in-house” maintenance and engineering department while being cost-effective because we are not on staff. Because we are not on staff, we do not produce overhead burdens on the client. Our business focus is to help large and small industrial clients complete projects in a timely and cost-efficient manner. This serves to enhance the customer’s competitive position in the marketplace. 

Indicom Electric is also a U.L. listed panel shop. We design, build, and program the PLC’s for our panels and then install them in the field.


Indicom Electric Company has proven itself invaluable to numerous companies for the following reasons:

  1. Specialization in High-Tech Manufacturing Applications.

  2. All As-built Drawings are produced with AutoCAD Release 13.

  3. Access to Electrical Engineering Support.

  4. Electrical Design and Build Capabilities.

  5. Ability to support jobs in a turnkey fashion through the coordination of all crafts and trades. Planning and scheduling capabilities are combined with on site engineering support when necessary.

  6. A core of electrical journeymen with over 100 years combined experience.


In October 1992, we reorganized and expanded our staff to target a perceived market need that most other electrical contractors had ignored-the development of project planning and turnkey electrical installations. This enables our customers to turn a concept over to us and walk away from the project with the confidence that it will be completed in a timely and cost-efficient manner.

In order to accommodate this market, we added Mr. Bob Cook to our full-time staff as a Superintendent. Bob came to us from Tri Electric, with over 40 years of experience in the electrical industry. Bob has been placed in charge of overseeing all major accounts, along with managing over 100 electricians. 

In August of 2004, Indicom Electric Company purchased Northgate Electric Company from Steve Stump. Northgate was a well-respected company with great employees and a 34 year track record. Indicom assimilated all employees and projects from Northgate into our organization, thus enhancing our commercial market capabilities. This acquisition brought us Louis Sylvester as a Senior Estimator for commercial projects. Louis has over 25 years of experience in the commercial market.Dennis DiPasquo is another Northgate acquisition and is competent in both, the commercial and industrial markets. Dennis has over 45 years of experience.

Mr. John Young was added to our staff to direct and support all electrical control concepts and designs. John worked in the industrial environment for Johnson & Johnson for 20 years. John also builds the majority of our U.L. listed panels for our industrial clients.

In addition, Mr. Greg Hill has worked extensively for Federal Paperboard Co,. Ivex Corporation and Stone Container Corporation of the paper mill industry. We feel this is another strong point of our company; the ability to understand and handle large mill machinery installations and control systems.


Thank you for the opportunity to allow us to profile our company to you, and for considering Indicom for all of your electrical needs. Feel free to call our office for more information or to schedule an appointment to meet with our staff on a personal basis. Meetings can be arranged at your facility and at your convenience. Any further information, financial, resumes of key personnel etc., will be furnished to you upon request.

Manpower and Support Staff:

Indicom Electric has a permanent staff of over 100 field electricians and usually employs 150 men during the peak construction season. We are signatory to IBEW Local #176 and IBEW Local #134. This allows us the ability to man-up a project to any level quickly and efficiently. Our foremen allow us to successfully manage and perform jobs in the sixty-man range. Our engineering branch allows us to provide AutoCAD and Technical support to assist our field electricians. This mixture is unique to the electrical contracting business and is one of the reasons we have been successful on fast track and large projects. Our expertise sets us apart as a leader in the industry.
