The ESCON name represents unity


On a beautiful fall day, we were honored to have family, friends, the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Club, and representatives from the Bay-Arenac ISD Career Center join us for a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony.

Owners Bill and Xan Sponseller explained during the brief ceremony that ESCON Group is a unification of  Essexville Electric, Affleck Electric, Thomas Electric, E-Tec and Fiber Fusion all of which are long standing business within the Greater Bay Region.  ESCON is an acronym for Electrical Solutions CONtracting.

The Sponsellers also shared details about a project to develop a showroom featuring products from Generac®, an industry leader in stand-by generators, ESCON is a long-standing certified Generac® generator dealer in sales, service and warranty. ESCON is developing a showroom in order to makes it easier for people to understand what a generator does for home and business safety, comfort and convenience. To create the showroom, they’ve partnered with local students. Tiffany Sheppard, Work-Based Learning Coordinator for the Career Center, will work with her students to develop a Generac showroom for ESCON. At the end of the school year, ESCON will host an open house so the public can see the new showroom highlighting generators, power washers, water pumps and other Generac products and services.

The companies that formed ESCON each were known throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region for excellence. Combining the firms makes this a better business for both customers and employees. We put our customers first and that means making it easy to access us. Combining the firms means customers call one number for all their electrical, generator, low-voltage, structured cabling, AV, commercial and industrial security needs. For our employees, the new company represents opportunity through personal growth through constant contact with experts in different parts of the power industry.

What hasn’t changed since our doors first opened in 1907 is the commitment we make to our customers. Our mission is to ensure confidence and to keep you safe, healthy and comfortable at home and at work.
