the owners of Precision." he concluded.

excited to begin the next phase in growing our business in order to not only
meet, but exceed our customer's expectations. PowerComm's diverse spectrum of

such as PowerComm it will enable us to not only maintain, but grow our strong
presence in Instrumentation as well as add the ability to provide complete
Electrical and Valve services. Our management and staff look forward to
working with and being part of the PowerComm group." said Trent and Carey
