"We have 85 workers," said Steve Welken, president for Grotberg Electric of Valley City, N.D. "If I could hire 12 or 15 more experienced guys I would do it tomorrow."
Welken said the problem would grow with the planned construction of the nitrogen plant, ethanol plant and a wind farm in Stutsman County, an addition to John Deere Manufacturing in Valley City and a hospital construction and renovation project in Fargo. "There are not enough construction workers in North Dakota to do the projects listed," he said. Welken said local businesses could not match the higher wages. "Until we have the customer base willing to pay that level you can't increase wages," he said.

The two companies had been peers in the industry for awhile, and they already had a great working relationship, said Grotberg President Steven Welken.
"We decided to merge ...to enable more opportunities for our employees," he said. Advertisement Employees from both companies have worked on several projects together, such as the Alliance Pipeline near Wimbledon. The merger will create a more flexible pattern for the company to be able to work with customers and balance workloads, Welken said.

That is the motto of Steve Welken, Chief Financial Officer for Grotberg Electric, Inc. "You get by with what you have, and you don't realize what you need until you have more," said Welken in reference to the new location."It's one of the most highly-technical manufacturing facilities around," said Welken."They are ahead of the game in robotic control."With the experience the company gains at the plant, it places them in a much better position to market to other manufacturing facilities."We're looking to expand into areas that provide a stable environment like the Bobcat plant," added Welken."That gives us a base of workers for new projects."The firm has been involved with many construction projects over the years but, as in any business, there have been many peaks and valleys."We have had some big projects that have required more laborers or seasonal workers," Welken said.Current projects have included work on the Cooperstown High School addition where they hired three local residents as laborers.The firm completed some remodeling work at the prison in Jamestown, and is in the process of finishing the new swimming pool in Oakes."Our focus is to slowly wean off of the commercial projects.We want to develop our relationships with contractors and work that way," said Welken.The end result is an ownership team of eleven shareholders: Jerald Aase, Brendan Ciesynski, Bret Fehr, Kevin Kamphuis, Mark Lloyd, Stephanie Ness, Jerry Sorby, Kyle Sorby, Steve Welken, Todd Wurzer, and Wyatt Zaun."Administration is the biggest limitation to growth," said Welken in respect to the company's future."We are building an infrastructure for the future.Welken said that Grotberg Electric, Inc., is looking to grow in the markets to the north, south, and west of Valley City.The company is looking to target Jamestown and Bismarck in the next phase of growth."Fargo is where everybody else is competing.""We believe that we are to be a good neighbor to the community we serve.We need to do what we can to contribute to the community," said Welken."Worthwile local causes are our priority."Welken wanted the readership to know Grotberg Electric is available for them in any way possible.
