The new year 2019 marks 100 years in business for electrical contractor Rosendin Electric, San Jose, Calif. The company is using the occasion to introduce a new logo and a shift in its branding that signals its services beyond electrical installations. It will now simply go by “Rosendin.”
The company has grown dramatically over the past century and now has 6,000 employees across 15 regional offices nationwide delivering revenues of more than $2 billion.
Since 1919 the company’s services have grown to include design-build engineering, building information modeling, prefabrication, renewable energy, network services, and service and maintenance.
“For 100 years, Rosendin has created a reputation for building quality electrical installations, building value for our clients, and building people within the company,” said Tom Sorley, chairman and CEO of Rosendin, in a release marking the company’s anniversary. "Our shared success since 1919 is thanks in large part to our loyal customers. Year after year, our customers have turned to us to partner on some of the most complex projects because of our commitment to building quality, building value, and building people. While our teams bring competency and capacity to our projects, it is the character of our employees that differentiates us most of all. We understand that our customers expect more from us. Our building success is an important step toward providing our customers an environment to deliver their own product success. Shared goals, shared success!”
Rosendin also credits its longevity and shared success to its dedicated employees. In 1992, Rosendin took a significant step to differentiating itself in the industry when the employees purchased the company from the Rosendin family, making Rosendin an employee-owned company. The company became 100% employee-owned in 2000.
“Employee ownership means we are not just another electrical contractor. As owners, we care about and truly listen to one another, as every employee has a stake in the future success of our company,” said Sorley. “That is why we have, and will continue to foster, a culture of shared ownership.”
Rosendin will be celebrating its centennial throughout 2019 with a variety of events and campaigns, including a look back at “100 Empowering Events” that shaped the company and will be sharing those events online with #Rosendin100 and #SharedSuccess1919. Other events and programming will be announced as details are finalized.
