Increase your building's electrical system health

Protect your people, resources, and avoid OSHA fines

Develop your custom plan


 
 

You are our priority.  You are bombarded every day with demands that are out of your control.  You have the potential for calls at any time of day or night requiring an emergency response.  And you do it because taking care of people matters to you.

We can't solve all your problems, but we can help you make a plan that will guide you as you take care of people counting on you - a plan that will minimize down-time and maximize the effectiveness of your electrical distribution system.

 
 

 
 

WE ARE A PART OF YOUR TEAM

Without proper monitoring and maintenance of your electrical distribution system, we know it is hard work to meet compliance codes, maintain equipment that runs 24/7, and find parts for units that might be decades old.  When you don't have time for these things you put your equipment, personnel, and clients at risk.  The services we provide are to simplify electrical maintenance by carrying that load for you.

 

WE KNOW WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU 

Safety

Increased NOI (Net Operating Income)

Reduced Downtime 

...as an extension of your business, these things are important to us also.

 

SIMPLIFYING ELECTRICAL MAINTENANCE

Let's face it.  Not everyone understands the jargon, technical aspects, and requirements of every industry.  People entrenched in their own industries often take it for granted that everyone they meet knows "the basics" of what they're talking about.  This isn't the case.

At FTBA we want to simplify this journey of discovery.  We monitor and maintain all aspects of your electrical distribution system for you.  We keep you updated and informed, and we answer any questions you have about what is needed in regards to preventative maintenance, trainings, safety, and compliance issues.  We can even help you develop a budget to be proactive in planning for the work and equipment purchases needed in the future.

Think of us as the bridge that connects you with what you need.  We have an extensive network that enables us to connect the right people with the right situation at the right time.  FTBA exists to give you confidence that your electrical distribution system is being maintained, monitored, and serviced according to industry and manufacturer specifications.

FTBA was given Certification #14530 by the Pennsylvania Unified Certification Program (PAUCP) to do business as a certified Woman Owned Business (WBE).  We have also received certified M/W/DBE status with the West Virginia Department of Transportation.  These achievements set FTBA apart in the electrical industry as a vendor of choice for its clients.

FTBA is made up of people with more than 20 years of experience in the electrical industry managing more than $30 million in electrical distribution maintenance for facility owners, managers, and business executives.  We believe the key to success is to be uncompromising in offering exemplary customer service.  FTBA stands on this principle and seeks to serve each client as a person first - not as a number.

We believe we are the premiere company in guiding and supporting our clients through maintenance routines, safety protocols, and OSHA requirements.  We have an extensive network that enables us to connect the right people with the right situation at the right time.  FTBA exists to give you confidence that your personnel are trained according to OSHA standards and your electrical distribution system is being maintained, monitored, and serviced according to industry and manufacturer specifications.

We look forward to hearing from you.

 

"FTBA?  What does that mean?"  I've heard that a lot.  

How in the world did I come up with Fun To Be Around as a name for an electrical maintenance company?  Let me give you some background.      

I believe that life is short, and that most people desire to live life to the fullest.  

      They go to work. 

            Do what is required.

                   Get paid.

                           And think they can only have fun on the weekends.

Having fun at work happens on occasion but in my opinion not enough.   I decided I wasn’t going to wait for the weekend to have fun.   I needed to be fun more than that.   

Having fun for me is about attitude.   I wanted my attitude to be about having fun every day.    So, many years ago I started putting the initials FtBA after my signature.  It was a daily reminder that I needed to be Fun To Be Around.    

Engineers, presidents, friends, and clients googled the initials to find out what degree these initials were indicative of.   It was hilarious to hear their reaction when I told them it was a self-proclaimed degree to impact people’s lives with fun.   It was a source of laughter almost every time I explained it.  I would then encourage them to be on the FTBA team.   

The number of the people on the team are growing, and I hope it becomes a movement.  You can be on the FTBA team no matter where you are or what company you work for.  It's about changing your life, and the lives of those around you, with fun each day.  I hope you will consider being a part of the FTBA team!

If you need a speaker at your next event, I would love to motivate you and the people in your organization to join our movement and take the FTBA lifestyle to

            your family,

                     your neighborhood,

                              your workplace.

How fun would that be?
