An Old Friend
ESCON Group is a new name for an old friend. ESCON — an acronym for Electrical Solutions CONtracting — grew out of Affleck Electric, which opened in 1907 to serve the emerging radio and television market. Over the years, the firm has grown to provide fiber optics, communications, security, generators, and electrical services to residential, commercial and industrial customers.
A New Name
In 2015, the name changed to ESCON Group to reflect the diverse services in fiber (Fiber Fusion), communications and security (E-Tec), and generators. Even the electric division has expanded over the years by incorporating trusted local companies, such as Thomas Electric, Affleck Electric and Taunt Electric.
Esprit de Corps
Esprit de Corps is defined as a sense of unity, common interests and shared purpose, as developed among a group of people closely associated in a task, cause, or enterprise.
ESCON lives this philosophy. We call it “Get a Grip.” When two hands grip, it requires each person to hang on, forming a partnership. It’s not a rescue, but an alliance. All involved benefit.
The grip is literally at the center of the ESCON logo. And the “Get a Grip” philosophy of Esprit de Corps is at the center of ESCON’s day-to-day operations.
