Details Matter

In construction, the details make the overall goal come to life.  Since Bergelectric shares the same goals with their clients, the company puts a heavy emphasis on getting the details right the first time.  Their innovative Quality Control Program ensures that Berg’s workmanship and installation processes exceed a client’s expectations.  By requiring dedicated quality control staff that report directly to upper management, no detail goes unnoticed.
