Successful preventive maintenance programs also help determine overall operating costs and reduce disruptions caused by emergency repairs, or by equipment that must be replaced after it has broken down.

Gibson Electric works closely with clients to develop a comprehensive preventive maintenance program that fits a facility’s specific needs. We staff the most proficient and skilled IBEW-trained and -certified electricians and equip them with cutting-edge technology, including infrared scanning, to help ensure clients receive industry-leading maintenance service.
