Upon certification Ralph Sr. opened for business as a sole proprietor in 1956. Starting the business with his wife and 2 young children, was a bold move. The used station wagon and the desire to provide electrical expertise to his industrial and residential customers paid-off . Hard work and knowledge of proper and safe electrical installations, expanded the customer base.
