Born and raised in Kentucky, Griffin Heidenreich knew he always wanted to work in a trade, and the electrical industry caught his eye.

After spending four years in his company’s schooling and apprenticeship program, he earned his OSHA 10 fall protection and aerial lift safety certifications.

“I think my training prepared me to get my work done correctly and efficiently but also in the safest way possible,” he says. “I am continuing to learn and grow my skillset by staying up to date on the Code and always keeping an open ear to suggestions and tips from my elders in the trade.”

Heidenreich says he’s open to constructive criticism.

“I think what it takes to succeed as a young employee in the electrical industry today is hard work, dedication, and being willing to learn,” he says.

As a fourth-year apprentice, some of his key responsibilities are running the lights, office rough-ins, running conduit, and assisting his superintendent and foreman.

“One of my favorite things about my current role is helping to get the project done,” he says. “Seeing the finished product is very rewarding.”

He is currently mounting transformers and panels and running conduit for the exit light , exhaust fans, and louvers for the Behr Paint Distribution Project. In the future, he says he plans to work his way up to a foreman.

“I plan to run jobs. To reach that goal, I will continue to work hard and learn as much as I can,” he says.
