Abstract

in the area includes feed mills, industrial companies like Amerequip, and the new Kiel Police Department facility.

Davis said, “We can build or install any type of electrical system required in a commercial building. We install high-efficiency systems designed to be the most cost effective on the market and geared to a particular property.”

Work in the Fox Valley area also includes some of the biggest industrial companies in the region.

Turnkey installation provided

Abstract Electric provides turnkey installation services to assure peak performance of equipment. The company offers power distribution design, equipment installation, instrumentation and metrology (measuring instrument) services, and specializes in fast-track system commissioning.

As the farming industry has become more and more advance, Abstract Electric adapted to accommodate the needs of our area.

Davis said, “Times have changed and agriculture has become extremely complex. We service all agricultural needs. We can offer solutions for a single-family farm operation to complex commercial farming systems with multiple building sites.”

Keeping up with new technologies in educational institutions and other government buildings can be a daunting task. Abstract Electric not only installs the technologies but will also service them in the event issues arise.

On the residential end, Abstract Electric works closely with several building contractors to provide designs and solution for customers.

“We specialize in all areas of residential electric which includes installation of outlets, lighting, dedicated circuits, generator installations, telephone and data cabling, landscape lighting design and installation, as well as smoke detector and fire alarm design and installation,” Davis said.

The sky is the limit for the customers interested in an electrical project. The company boasts, “If you can dream it, Abstract can do it,” which is especially true when it comes to home entertainment and automation.

“It’s a fun aspect of our job to be able to create and install home audio/video for people,” Davis said. “We can work with any budget to find solutions that fit for anyone.”

High performance whole house entertainment is possible through an entire residence with the simplicity of operation the whole family can use.

Davis stressed his company’s focus on efficiency when going into a new job. As a Focus on Energy Market Provider, Abstract Electric has the equipment and personnel to identify and evaluate opportunities to reduce overall energy use. The company is familiar with the various programs and financial incentives to help people get the most out of Focus on Energy.

Benefits of the energy initiative are reduced energy bills, reduced cooling loads, reduced lighting loads, maximized use of rebates and incentives, reduced electric loads, reduced harmonic losses, and a greener environment.

Looking toward the future

With a list of services in check and a strong focus on customer relationships, Davis and Reimer look toward the future where they plan to grow their company to the next level.

“We’re not going anywhere,” Davis said firmly. “Our goal is to grow our

company with more employees and new opportunities to continue serving this area.”

As Abstract Electric looks to grow, it’s important for aspiring electricians to know that there’s a future for growth with this company.

“Our goal is to develop new employees through training and apprenticeship programs,” Davis said.

“As we grow we are looking for individuals that want a fresh start. We are looking for people with an open mind who are willing to learn our process and approach. To be honest, the more you learn the more you can earn, so there is a lot of potential.”

Davis urges that is important for his employees to learn and making mistakes along the way is part of the game.

“I make mistakes everyday, but I know that’s how we grow as individuals,” Davis said. “I’m looking to hire more people with character, people that trust themselves and admit when they make a mistake.”

Building relationships over the last decade of business has been one that Davis and Reimer take seriously. Along the way the two have been able to empower their employees to build the same relationships with clients, who have become more electrically educated themselves.

“I want our customers to know how thankful we are to them,” Davis said again. “They are our success story and we look forward to another 10 years.”

Official’s Den giving back

On the north end of town lies the Official’s Den, a second business for Reimer and Davis which the two bought as a way to give back to the community.

“We invested in the bar and bowling alley as a way to grow with the town. It’s a way for us to give back to the families in the community,” Davis said.

In August 2012, the bowling lanes were 100 percent redone and upgraded. They again will be updated at the end of summer before leagues begin in September.

Leagues run September through March on Monday and Wednesday nights, along with a couples league.

Outdoor volleyball leagues are scheduled in the summer from May to August on Tuesday nights along with horseshoes on Wednesday nights.

The best way to keep up with Official’s Den is through Facebook. There a person can find up to date specials as well as a list of events including karaoke and local talent/bands on the weekends.

“This was a place we started to give back, so we appreciate all the support we’ve gotten from the community,” Davis said.

Official’s Den is open daily at 11 a. m. and encourages people to check out their daily specials on food, drinks and bowling.

In a small town, it’s easy to say, “There’s nothing to do.” For this reason, Reimer and Davis are trying to provide a social, affordable place for people to get together.

Davis said, “Seeing a family together bowling, having a great time, that’s just the best feeling.”
