Minneapolis, Jan 14 – Winthrop-based Jackson Electric Inc has become the Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association’s (MN Biofuels) latest vendor member.
“We are pleased to welcome Jackson Electric to our growing roster of members. A year ago, its sister company, JTI Services, joined us and both companies work with the ethanol industry in southern Minnesota. Their support for MN Biofuels shows their commitment for a stronger ethanol industry in Minnesota,” said Tim Rudnicki, MN Biofuels executive director.
Jackson Electric was founded in 1987 by Dale Jackson to provide electrical services to the ag-based community in Winthrop. The company later narrowed its services to industrial and commercial customers.
In 1997, Dale’s brother, Mike, joined Jackson Electric, and the company began providing its services to the new ethanol plant in town, Heartland Corn Products.
“Jackson Electric has had a great long-term relationship with the ethanol industry that started with the construction of Heartland Corn Products. We have grown with them over time and wanted to show our support for the industry by joining MN Biofuels as a vendor member,” said Mike, vice president of production at Jackson Electric.
Today, the company’s footprint has expanded beyond Winthrop. After Dale’s sons, Cody and Dylan, joined Jackson Electric in 2014, the company now serves customers in Minnesota and the upper Midwest with a safety-driven team dedicated to providing the best possible electrical services to its customers.
These electrical services include design, installation and maintenance of a company’s electrical system.
Jackson Electric’s sister company, JTI Services, is an electrical predictive maintenance and safety company that helps industrial and commercial facilities reduce downtime and prevent injuries. It was established in 2013 to complement Jackson Electric’s services.
“As our company has grown over the years, we have realized that our core values and specialties align well with the ethanol industry. Joining MN Biofuels has given us a great opportunity to learn what our customers are thinking about and also a chance to build new relationships,” Mike said.
