NEW HIRE IN WEST SACRAMENTO
Juan Salmeron joined our West Sacramento Branch last week as a Project Engineer. He will be offering support to the Project Managers and the field on multiple projects. Juan brings 10+ years of construction experience with him to Collins. The first half of his career was spent with a large general contractor and then he moved on to a solar company. Most recently, he was with an electrical contractor. Originally from a very small town in the Honduran Caribbean, Spanish was his first language. In his free time he enjoys working on DIY projects around the house or spending time with his wife and three kids. Juan has worked with several other companies in the industry but in the short time he has been with Collins he says, “There are many things that Collins is doing right and is on the path to getting others to be better.” He is very excited and happy to be a part of Collins Electrical.
Welcome to the TEAM Juan!

The recent rains filled the trenches with 16” of water. After pumping the water out, the team was able to get the deep underground in and slurry poured before the next storm.

We are so proud of Assistant Project Manager Deborah Summers who was 1 out of 6 scholarship recipients of the 2019 International Code Council (ICC) East Bay Chapter.
