Supercharged Work Ethic
I was raised the son of a commercial fisherman on the North Shore of Lake Superior and learned my work ethic early in a family of eight. My brothers and I helped with the chores daily. Some days after school, we would have a half-ton of herring to process, ice down, and get ready for market. We cleaned fish. We cut, split and stacked wood for fires. We shoveled snow for the fish house road on Lake Superior. We worked each and every day. My family didn’t have much money, but we worked hard to earn it and we grew up proud of our ability, perseverance, and sense of accomplishment in a day’s work.
As I grew older, I took this work ethic and applied it to everything I did. In 1978, I began working in the electrical trade on the Milepost 7 project in Silver Bay, Minnesota. After relocating to Stillwater with my family in 1984, I attended electrician’s school at night. I passed the state’s Electrical Journeyman’s exam in 1987 and then the Master Electrician’s exam in 1989. That same year, I started Midbrod Electric as a one-man shop. In 1998, after securing larger-scale electrical work, my son joined the business, and we began to expand.
Today, Midbrod Electric is a licensed, bonded and insured company that is ready, willing and able to meet the needs of our customers. With a highly trained staff and a fleet of trucks, we work hard for our customers and are proud to operate a thriving, locally owned business. Our success is the result of maintaining a sense of urgency in completing projects on time and on budget. But we always make sure to work with precision and care. We know it’s critical to provide a safe and clean work environment for our customers and our employees.
When Midbrod Electric finishes a job, we want you to love the results. We know satisfied customers are our best advocates, repeat customers, and source of referrals. But instead of letting us tell you about what we can do, give us a call and let us prove it to you.
