Electricians.
“We weren’t expecting this opportunity to present itself, yet a friend of ours enlightened us that Trunnell Electric, which shares the same commitment we do for our customers and employees alike, was on the market. This made it impossible not to pursue it! Lee and Rick Trunnell toured our office before interviewing us to make sure that we could provide a positive environment for their staff and customers. Once they did some more research, it became clear that our business was the perfect match. Recognizing the difficulty of acquiring skillful electricians, M.R. Electricians has been gradually expanding its personnel. Yet, it only made sense that we joined forces and merged our talents with Trunnell’s”, added Mark Dols, Vice President of M.R. Electricians.
“After 60+ years of dedication to Trunnell’s employees and customers, Lee and Rick Trunnell are ready to retire. They’ve earned their restful retirement, where they can enjoy leisure activities, spend time with family, and go fishing! We here at M.R. Electricians are thrilled about this new chapter in the company story as we prepare ourselves to take the reins. Our aim is to keep growing and foster a fulfilling work environment that strives to provide the best service possible for our customers. In an incredibly short amount of time, MRE has expanded its reach exponentially – a win-win situation for everyone involved!” added Chad Foster, Director of Operations at M.R. Electricians.
With the acquisition, customers will have access to a greater scope of products and services. This includes MRE’s Commercial Electrical and Fire Alarm expertise and Trunnell Electric’s full range of residential and commercial electrical installation and repair services.
The management team emphasizes that their customers will continue to receive excellent service, synonymous with a small family-owned business that cares about them, their families, and their businesses. Because they know that communication is key, a real professional and knowledgeable person always answers the phone.
The acquisition has already led to the implementation of new software that improves the customer experience while also making their technicians more responsive in the field. It has also brought a new burst of energy to both companies’ offices and field employees.
Both teams are well known for their excellent customer service. They pledged to build on this so that they can satisfy every single client that walks through their door. They stated that they are welcoming customer feedback now more than ever to continue improving the customer experience.
While M.R. Electricians has been in business since 1996, Trunnell Electric was founded in 1936. This means that the management team of both companies has over a century’s worth of experience in electrical services combined. They hope to tap from this experience by retaining everyone on both teams and adding a few others as they move on. The acquisition is effective immediately, and further details about the partnership will be released in the coming weeks.
