eeting the electrical power needs of expanding Midwest companies is work that sometimes leads to expansion projects of its own.
Take the case of Thompson Electric Co., a Sioux City, Iowa-based firm that next week will move into its new 63,000-sq.-ft. (5,853-sq.-m.) headquarters in Sioux City - a $3-million capital investment that provides space for 104 workers.
"This is a great place to be," says Skip Perley, CEO of Thompson.
Perley and his team considered moving some of their employees to satellite locations in Omaha, Neb., and Sioux Falls, S.D.
"We ultimately decided to keep our people here," Perley says. "Last spring, we decided to invest in our future as we continued to grow and be profitable. We looked at quite a few options, including building from scratch or buying an old building and remodeling. We found a building in a great location that was very architecturally interesting. We decided to buy it and renovate it."
The acquisition of the old Standard Oil Company building in Sioux City "allows us to have all of our Sioux City operations under one roof," Perley says.
Perley says he especially likes the close-knit family atmosphere of Sioux City.
"People are very good here," he says.
Growth in demand for electrical contracting services in the region prompted Thompson to expand, says Perley.
"If you are a business executive at a growing company and you are looking for someplace to go," says Perley, "Sioux City is the place to be."
