Fort Myers, Florida – Electrician Greg Myers, the owner of Fort Myers-based electrician Omaha Electric, announced plans Friday to invest up to $3 million in the company.
The investment is a part of a $1.5 billion investment that the Fort Myers business has made to expand its business and bring the world’s largest company to Fort Myers.
The Fort Myers area’s largest electrician and the fourth-largest company in the U.S., Omaha was founded in 1986.
Its current employees include some of the biggest names in the industry, including John Kors, a former CEO of UPS, as well as James “Johnny” Dolan, who is now chairman of Tesla Motors.
The company, which was founded by the late James Dolan and David Eichman, is the only electrician in the world to be awarded the prestigious Arthur C. Clarke Award for “outstanding achievement in the development of the electrician profession.”
In recent years, Omaha has been expanding to other parts of the U., including California and Florida, where Omaha currently has offices in Newport Beach, Newport News, Miami and Orlando.
A recent article in Forbes Magazine called Omaha the most important U.K. electrician company, citing its business model as one of the most successful in the country.
