As we bid farewell to 2023, I am happy to share our year in review. Throughout the past year, ERMCO continued to grow in many ways – with our people, our facilities, our projects, and our services – to better meet the needs of clients and employees.
In December, we celebrated one year in our new headquarters. The ERMCO HQ was designed intentionally to reinforce the community feel of our company culture, to display the expertise of our craftspeople, to create interactive demonstration spaces, and to be a hub for innovation. This includes a focus on technology systems, building controls, and fabrication that serves as a showcase and hands-on space for clients, enabling informed decisions and customized solutions. We invite you to visit our facility where you can:
EXPERIENCE the possibilities for your facility. Explore a myriad of technology and installation options showcased throughout the building.
CONNECT and collaborate using cutting-edge technology like Zoom Room, wireless screen sharing, and touchscreen AV & lighting controls.
INTEGRATE building systems seamlessly through one platform, enhancing automation efficiencies and simplifying maintenance, monitoring, and troubleshooting.
INNOVATE with our team, using our expansive fabrication space and materials inventory to find ways to maximize project schedules and budgets.
Looking forward to 2024, executive leadership changes mark an exciting chapter in our journey. CEO Greg Gossett's retirement after 40 years ushers in a new era, with Mike Summers and Kris Ashcraft joining the executive team as Vice Presidents of Operations. As I assume the role of CEO, our commitment to excellence and innovation remains steadfast.
The following year in review highlights how we’ve grown over the last year, our commitment to our community, and value we’ve provided to our clients through technology systems, building controls, and fabrication. Exciting times lie ahead for ERMCO, and I am confident in our ability to exceed expectations. Thank you for being an integral part of our journey.
CEO and President, ERMCO, Inc.
The Year in ERMCOgraphics
An improved fitness experience in Broad Ripple.
Indy Parks and Community Health Network are working together to provide health services to the Broad Ripple community. Healthy living and exercise classes are offered in a new facility with expanded capacity for fitness programs, physical therapy, and family wellness. ERMCO's role in the design-build project included electrical, temperature controls, mechanical, and plumbing for the entire building. We also installed audio-visual, CCTV, and access control systems for the rec center.
At Gainbridge Fieldhouse, networking technology keeps fans connected to the game and to each other.
Renovations upgraded guest experience, operational effectiveness, and security measures inside and outside the Fieldhouse. ERMCO installed over 700 wireless access points, 500 monitors, 300 security cameras, 250 miles of data and power cabling, 70 broadcast cable boxes, and the technology required for the new cashless Fast Break grab-and-go markets.
Integrated building controls and low voltage systems allow Fall Creek Pavilion to transform from a state fair livestock barn to an indoor track and field event center.
The new Indiana Farm Bureau Fall Creek Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds is a modern, flexible multi-purpose and multi-use facility with the ability to host a wide variety of events throughout the year, including the nation’s largest swine show and the NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championship. ERMCO provided electrical, lighting, telecom, access control, and temperature control services.
Innovative fabrication allowed PXP Solutions to minimize start-up time at their newest facility in Plainfield, IN.
ERMCO provided electrical for this design-build project, with almost 13% of project manhours performed in fabrication. That included panelboard distribution assemblies, feeder conduit offsets, SO cord drops, conduit hanger strut and rod racks, in-wall rough-in assemblies, and surface mount receptacle box and conduit builds. The SO cord drops allowed for installation prior to equipment arrival with flexibility to run power to final equipment locations.
Empowering our people to extend our impact beyond construction.
Whether it is their dedication to getting the job done right and done safely, their donation of time and resources to charitable organizations, or their leadership within the company and in industry associations, ERMCO employees are helping improve our company, our industry, and our communities. In 2023, ERMCO and our employees have had a positive impact on communities in need, donating time, labor, and over $120,000.
