I wanted to send you a note to let you know that your technician, Toby, went above and beyond during his visit on Monday. He replaced all the light bulbs that needed attention in our warehouse and I almost feel like I am getting a suntan when I walk in. Toby is professional, courteous and knows his stuff. We appreciate him and his work!

After Hurricane Irma we were without power. Florida Power & Light restored power to the north end of the beach, with the exception of two buildings, one of which I live in. A week before FPL told us power would be restored, a friendly Black & McDonald crew showed up. After about three hours of labor, they got our building up and running with power. They were absolutely amazing.

Carol Figura, Storm Restoration Resident, Fort Meyers, Florida

I wanted to thank your organization and crews that took time to come to Florida to help people they had never met before and restore their electric power. We were truly blessed, my family is safe and my house suffered minimal long-lasting damage thanks to Black & McDonald. To all of you in Kansas City have a blessed day!

Just passing along what a great job your technician Tim did in replacing an old Alvey Micrologix PLC with a new CompactLogix today. The work is clean and neat, and all of Tim’s wiring checked out correctly the first time. Thank you Tim!

I wanted to take a minute to thank you and your crew for the outstanding work that was performed at Med James. Your crew followed the procedure to the letter and things went extremely smoothly. The guys did a great job cleaning up after the project and the client was very pleased with the updated panel legends. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
