with several building contractors to provide designs and solution for customers.

“We specialize in all areas of residential electrical 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.

Looking towards the future

With a list of services in check and a strong focus on customer relationships, Davis and Riemer look towards 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, they are also looking for more employees to take on the work demand.

“Our biggest goal is to grow from a 15 man to a 20 man crew,” Davis said. “It’s a real challenge to find people to fill the need that we are receiving. We could be doing more, but we are really just short of man power.”

“We have created a great culture here and are a very tight-knit family,” Davis said. “The more we give back to our employees, the more we continue to grow, together.”

Abstract works deliberately to train their employees with options for apprenticeships as well. The company has ambitions to get employees even more involved in the business through various initiatives.

“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 it’s 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 says. “I’m looking to hire more people with character, people that trust themselves and admit when they make a mistake.”

Official’s Den giving back

On the north end of town lies the Official’s Den, Riemer and Davis’ second business 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% redone and upgraded.

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

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

There is also a summer eight pin bowling league on Monday nights. The league is an eight week league broke into two, four week parts that begins around the middle of June.

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 says.

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, Riemer and Davis are trying to provide a social, affordable place for people to get together.

Davis ended saying, “Seeing a family together bowling and have a great time, that’s just the best feeling.”
