Town & Country Electric Transitions Brand to Faith Technologies

Appleton, Wis. (January 29, 2009) – In January,Faith Technologies, Inc., a full-service electrical and specialty systems contractor, is completing the final phase of a nationwide transition by converting all 10 of its Town & Country Electric locations in Wisconsin to one name – Faith Technologies.

With more than 1,000 employees across Wisconsin, Faith Technologies will operate under one brand. The Wisconsin transition, from Town & Country Electric to Faith Technologies, is part of the final conversion for 15 locations across the country.“Since 1972, our customers and employees have continually put their faith in our organization,” says Rollie Stephenson, President and CEO of Faith Technologies. “The name Faith Technologies represents their confidence in our business, which we work hard to earn every day.”

Logo changes on its Wisconsin offices, company vehicles and clothing will be transitioned during the first quarter of 2009. Faith Technologies will inform customers through letters sent the week of Jan. 19th to more than 2,650 customers in Wisconsin. The company will also make customers aware of the name transition through its Web site, billing statements and direct mail.

“It is important for us to consistently communicate with our customers, align our employees and establish a constant presence as one brand with the same values and business goals while we continue to grow in Wisconsin and across the country,” says Stephenson.

The employee-owned company has experienced revenue growth of 75 percent across Wisconsin since 2003. In 2008, Faith Technologies exceeded $225 million in revenue.

Recognized for its quality workforce and maintaining end-to-end job control, Faith Technologies has worked on several multi-million dollar projects across industries in Wisconsin, including work at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Cabella’s Retail Store, Briggs and Stratton, Sargento, Ocean Spray Cranberries and University of Wisconsin Microbial Sciences Building.

Faith Technologies’ ability to provide design services in early project development, offer solutions for LEED building construction and management and implement LEAN initiatives have been major contributors to its revenue growth. The company has grown and maintained its employee base through construction projects, as well as on-demand and constant presence service work.

With corporate headquarters in Appleton, Faith Technologies operates offices throughout Wisconsin in Fond du Lac; Green Bay; La Crosse; Madison; Marinette; Milwaukee; Sheboygan; Stevens Point and Wautoma. Faith Technologies also operates offices in Atlanta, Ga., Kansas City, Kan., Springfield, Mo. and Tulsa, Okla. In 2009, the company will open an office in Omaha, Neb.

In 2002, SKC Electric of Kansas City and Town & Country Electric of Wisconsin and Indiana separated from Encompass – a previous joint corporation with other electrical and building services companies – to form Faith Technologies. The Faith Technologies name was created by Roland (Rollie) Stephenson, CEO of Faith Technologies; Mike Jansen, Executive Vice President of SKC Electric; and Rick Schinke, President of Town & Country Electric. Prior to the transition, each division was operating under its own names in different markets.
