About Powering Michigan’s Future

Our world runs on electricity and information technology, and the IBEW/NECA team makes it happen. NECA contractors are the preferred provider of electrical services for so many across North America because the centerpiece of our advantage is training. In a competitive marketplace, talk is cheap. Performance is the only thing that matters. That’s why the skill level of our workforce sets us apart. Our often imitated, never duplicated apprentice program produces journeymen who are quite simply the best in the world at what they do. This commitment guarantees you a workforce that is second to none regardless of the project.

Every year, the IBEW NECA team commits more than 100 million dollars nationally to training and that’s just the beginning. Our apprentice program delivers skilled quality workers to your job site and our journeyman upgrade courses keep our workers abreast of the latest trends and advancements in the industry assuring you that you are getting the absolute most for every man hour on the job. Quality work performed efficiently. It’s called productivity. We design and install critical electrical systems delivered efficiently for virtually any type of project.

In an information and technology age where today’s breakthrough is tomorrows old news, we continue to set the standard of excellence in the electrical industry. That’s why time after time, year after year, performance oriented people call on us. We’re the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 58 and the Southeastern Michigan chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association. The IBEW NECA team.
