OUT-PACING THE COMPETITION
Shealy Electrical Wholesalers- electrical construction
"As an Electrical Distributor, we were immediately impressed with how well-run Feyen Zylstra is. We have worked with Associates from their corporate office, their Nashville, TN office, and most recently their Charleston, SC office. It is clear that the leadership from the top of the organization all the way to the field, practice what they preach. Integrity, honesty and trust resonates from the CEO to the helper in the field."
"Personally, I believe Feyen Zylstra is out-pacing their competition. Their core values, willingness to share best-practices, and empowerment of their people help not only the electrical contracting industry, but the suppliers, vendors, and community charities in attracting highly qualified talent back to the electrical contracting business."
"With over 27 years of experience in the electrical manufacturer and distribution business, I highly recommend Feyen Zylstra as one of the best electrical contractor firms I have dealt with.You and your crew have been a pleasure to work with. The professionalism on all sides of FZ has been remarkable. And the racks; that was really nice work. There are people out there that don't think structure cabling is an art form. I am not one of those people and I recognize the crew did an outstanding job."
