From its conception, the company has experienced steady and regimented growth. In 1994, the company became associated with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 8 Union.

Over the last several years, the electrical industry has seen and is currently experiencing unprecedented changes due to emerging technologies. Northwest has always and will continue to provide a highly trained workforce to meet the challenges for years to come.
