Ya probably know Pat & Sherri’s story of how they started Pine Heat and Air, which eventually became Pine Home Services. But that’s only the background to the day when Pine Electric was destined to spring into existence…
The day The Beatles met Elvis was almost as significant as the day Pat Hawkins merged paths with Art Hall.
Art spied Pat at the Pine Island Kwik Trip and decided to say more than just hello. He’d always admired the way Pat & Sherri treated their customers and ran their business. Turns out Pat had always admired the electrical genius and artistry he’d seen in Art’s work for his customers….
How It Began
“Boy, Pat, business is killin’ me.”
“Killin’ ya? Come on, it can’t be that bad.”
“All the admin’s keepin’ me from bein’ in houses. How’d you get Pine to run so smooth? Your people got smiles perma-wired into their faces.”
“You think we look smooth? Guess we’re doin’ somethin’ right,” Pat chuckled
“I’m serious. If only I had a team like you got, I could focus on the electric work and trainin’ my guys.”
They looked at each other for a second. Pat thought about Art’s genius as an electrician, a MASTER above all masters. He thought about Art’s serious passion and HUGE heart. Fire Department for 18 years, workin’ with Ronald McDonald House to help children AND built Habitat houses. He’d even been a member of the Golden Eagles Dirt Bike club with Pat’s dad. You just can’t go wrong with Art Hall.
Then Pat sealed their destiny… “You know there’s a shortage of electricians right now in Minnesota. And I know how to recruit the best character people for you to train…”
“My electrician know how…”
“My admin and on-time all-the-time real people ready to help keep people safe…”
“Let’s do it,” they both said at the same time (or at least that’s what we like to believe happened).
Pat and Art really have already put together a crackerjack team of electricians who operate by the principles that we believe and stand by. We’re even adding more amazing character electricians so that everyone in the Rochester area gets the best electrical service for their home.
