Phoenix Business Journal Ranks Rosendin Electric First Among
Electrical Contractors for 2011
High-Profile Projects and State-of-the-Art Construction Techniques Put Rosendin
Electric at Top of List for Second Year in a Row.
Tempe, AZ, USA - (May 30, 2012) -- The Phoenix Business Journal has named Rosendin
Electric, one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and a 100% employee-
owned company, the top electrical contractor for 2011 as ranked by gross sales. This
marks the second year in a row that Rosendin Electric has been named the top electrical
construction company by the Phoenix Business Journal. Rosendin Electric also ranked
number two in 2009.
Based on an independent survey, the Phoenix Business Journal selected Rosendin
Electric number one among the area contractors with $117 million in local sales for 2011,
up $8 million from 2010 when Rosendin Electric took top honors with $109 million in
annual regional sales. Even though Rosendin Electric has 30 percent fewer employees,
the company outranked the second runner up by $24 million in revenue or more than 20
“Our reputation continues to grow, and our Arizona office has been instrumental in helping
the company expand its business throughout the Southwest,” said Mike Greenawalt, Vice
President of Southwest Operations for Rosendin Electric. “Our commitment to excellence,
safety, and innovation, and our ability to complete work on time and within budget is what
allows us to continue to outpace our competition. The fact that we have ranked at the top
of the Phoenix Business Journal list of area contractors provides independent evidence of
our ongoing success.”
According to Greenawalt, part of the success for the Tempe office is due to a number of
high-profile projects, including wiring a new campus for a noted technology firm and
construction work on the new Maricopa County Courthouse, which was completed in
February 2012. The Rosendin Electric Tempe office has been setting new standards in
electrical construction best practices, especially in Building Information Modeling (BIM).
Fred Meeske, who was instrumental in bringing new computer modeling practices to the
Maricopa County Courthouse project, was recently named to the newly created position of
Corporate Director of Building Information Modeling (BIM) Services for Rosendin Electric
with responsibility for training and setting new BIM standards for the entire company.
