CES Lawrenceville: Heavy Lifting for A.C. Scott Electric
[Lawrenceville, NJ] – Over 1,000 feet of galvanized pipe. That’s what A.C. Scott Electric needed for a new prefabricated building being installed at the Educational Testing Services location in Ewing, New Jersey. When CES Lawrenceville Branch Manager Bill Scannon and his team heard that, they knew they were about to start one of the largest projects in their branch’s short history.
Scannon has a long-standing relationship with A.C. Scott Electric that dates back long before he started at CES. Between that connection, the branch’s proximity to the jobsite, and a history of high-quality service from the CES Lawrenceville team, A.C. Scott Electric’s decision to work with CES was not surprising.
“We worked with them before, and they were impressed by my team’s dedicated service and attention to detail,” said Scannon. “All of the credit has to go to my guys here.”
While choosing CES Lawrenceville for the project was not shocking, the project itself could be considered just that as 1,000 feet of heavy galvanized pipe is no small ask.
“A.C. Scott is installing three 600-kilowatt generators that will feed the Educational Testing Services building. They are about the size of a small tractor,” said Scannon. “It’s required a huge team effort. My team has pulled orders, picked them up, and delivered them at 7 a.m. every day.”
And that’s just on a regular day. Some days have provided more unique challenges, and CES Lawrenceville has gone above and beyond to overcome every one of them.
“Recently, they needed 100 feet of three-and-a-half-inch galvanized pipe. We don’t stock pipe that large at our branch, so we drove to Philly, picked it up, and had it back by 3:30 p.m.,” said Scannon. “It was delivered to the jobsite by 7 a.m. the next morning.”
That sort of dedication goes a long way, especially during this time. The unfortunate reality is that many places have their hands tied right now because of state regulations and guidelines. CES Lawrenceville is doing everything they can to help essential businesses and jobsites keep moving forward. The reputation that CES Lawrenceville has as a supplier that essential businesses can trust is starting to catch on, and Scannon attributes that to his team’s hard work.
“I couldn’t do it without Operations Manager Dave Donahue, Kevin Sullivan from counter sales, and our driver, Andy Grullon,” said Scannon. “My guys aren’t just dedicated to getting a job done; they’re dedicated to following through, crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s. They care about making sure everything is always correct, and it shows.”
