"Gatch Electrical has been one of the best jobs and places I've ever worked. From their teamwork, safety record, and sense of pride in what they do! I have worked here since Oct. of 1998 and couldn't imagine ever working anywhere else. I have said many times, that if I ever stopped working for Gatch, that I would never do electrical work again. Because I would never find another employer who takes care of their workers like they do. We are a family and that is how we are all treated! From the newest of employees all the way up to Mr. Gatch himself, we are family!"

Chris Sormrude, Employee since October 22, 1998
