T&D World Features Northwest Lineman College
T&D World magazine featured a brief story on Quanta Services’ acquisition of Northwest Lineman College on July 10. The story covers the school’s mission to “recruit and train the next generation of linemen.” As a Quanta Services Company, Irby Construction is excited about the opportunity this acquisition presents for our collective workforce. Aaron Howell, CEO Of Northwest LInmean College says, “Our trade is America’s best-kept secret. Our jobs can’t be exported like in manufacturing, and we need linemen here in America.”
The story includes a slideshow tour of the college and directs readers to the 2018 Linemen Supplement for a more in-depth look at the history of NLC and its future plans with Quanta Services. The supplement will be mailed to magazine subscribers and posted online. It will also be available at the T&D World booth at the 2018 International Lineman’s Expo.
T&D World’s mission is to provide utility executives, managers, engineers, supervisors, operators and linemen with must-read information on the design, engineering, construction, operation and maintenance of the electric power-delivery system.
