The Superior team was fortunate enough to hold the annual ESOP Golf Outing at Prestwick Village on September 19 – A fully outdoor event where the SEGLC team had the pleasure of meeting some of our new Tennessee Valley teammates. The outing was played in a shotgun format this year and followed by dinner. Thank you to Steve and Cristina (wife) Reap for planning and putting on this event for the ESOP members.
A special thank you to our Superior team (the safety department, the field, and project management) for your commitment to safety as a culture. Congratulations to all involved in these three projects!

We are pleased to announce that Superior Electric Great Lakes Company has officially acquired the Nashville, Tennessee division of BESCO as of June 28, 2020. This division of BESCO has provided premier electrical services for clients across an array of industries since its inception in 2008. They have expanded their capabilities into mechanical services offering expertise in fabrication, installation, maintenance, and repair while maintaining their core expertise in electrical services.
Superior Electric and BESCO have maintained a long-standing partnership over the years working on several projects together resulting in an estimated $80 million in revenue. We share the same core values when it comes to our customers and employees. As a result, this acquisition was a natural progression for both companies’ future growth. This acquisition allows Superior Electric to diversify into other industries thus strengthening our position in the marketplace. It also affords both parties the opportunity to maximize best practices and synergies.
The Nashville division will operate under the legal entity names of Superior Electric Tennessee Valley Company (SETVCO) and Superior Mechanical Tennessee Valley Company (SMTVCO). Larry Pittsley will continue as Vice President providing leadership to the Nashville team.
Please join us in welcoming the Nashville BESCO team to our family. We all look forward to continuing to serve you.

The number of Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) have expanded since they were established as qualified retirement plans in 1974. ESOPs can benefit both the organization and employees including team members receiving significant retirement benefits at no monetary cost to the employee. Research shows ESOP companies are more productive, faster growing, more profitable and have lower turnover.
My guest for this episode is Jeff Jamerino, President and CEO Superior Electric Great Lakes Company. Jeff led conversion of the organization from a single shareholder to a 100% ESOP which has had a profound impact on the success of the organization and engagement of team members. Listen in as Jeff shares lessons learned in the transition along with insights into building a family-centric culture that drives engagement and retention in a highly competitive industry.

“Work at GM Brookville is coming to a close. This project utilized various lean practices and methods to deliver the customer a project that met all of their design criteria, stayed on budget, as well as met the expanded schedule (due to COVID-19 impacts). The extended pre-con phase of the project allowed for complete scope development by the team. In the end, we delivered the electrical portion of the project with less than 0.5% in changes.” – Project Manager, Scott Dupuie
