Employee Recognition Dinner

We are proud to say that we just had our First Annual Employee Recognition Dinner, to celebrate the amazing people that we are fortunate to have work for us here at Huston.  We spent an evening out having dinner, giving out awards, and spending time with one another.

Not Everything Goes According to Plan…

Huston helped Family Psychiatric Center with new lettering for their monument sign at the end of 2016, but not everything went according to plan. 
Family Psychiatric Center had an existing monument-style sign with wooden letters and they asked us to provide new painted aluminum letters of their new logo. 

Huston’s Electrical Service Division recently had the opportunity to assist in retrofitting the interior lighting at the Montgomery Aviation / Indy Executive Airport in Zionsville, IN.  We worked closely with Sean White, General Manager, in finding the appropriate LED fixture for the airplane hangars.

Pete Septoski evaluated the different LED lighting options and decided on the RAB Rail225 high bay fixture.  The new LED fixtures replaced existing 400 watt HID high bay fixtures.

in Huston Technology

After six years of steady growth, Huston AVTech has achieved Gold Dealership status with Control4.
Control4 is the industry standard for Home Control and Small Business Automation systems.
Control4 dealers can raise their status level by achieving purchasing goals for the year.
The benefit of achieving these levels raises dealer visibility on the Control4 website and is a stamp
of professionalism and competence for Huston AVTech.

A special thank you to all of our clients for trusting Huston to install these amazing Home Control
and Business Automation systems. We look forward to new partnerships and growth in the future.









For the 6th year in a row Huston Electric, Inc. is proud to accept the Journal & Courier’s Reader’s Choice Award for the category “Best Electrician”.
We are so proud of our amazing staff who have made this possible, and for the community who has embraced us for so long.

Huston’s Sign Division had the privilege to work with the City of Kokomo on many of the signs at the Kokomo Municipal Stadium.  The City of Kokomo approached Huston with architectural drawings and designs and Huston offered competitive pricing and ultimately delivered in manufacturing and installing the various sign packages.  We worked closely with Ross Pierce, the City’s System Project Designer.  The sign projects came in phases as the stadium was being built and from start to finish we were involved for a year and a half with approximately 70 signs throughout the stadium.  We are grateful to have been a part of this beautiful stadium and all that it has to offer.

Kokomo Event Center

Huston’s Electrical Service Division recently provided an LED retro-fit at the Kokomo Event Center
and the stats on cost savings are incredible!  They are saving 170-watts per fixture, increasing the
life expectancy of each fixture by 82,000 hours, and received a $238 rebate per fixture from
Duke Energy.  For a complete breakdown please see below.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Gas_City.jpgGas City’s Industrial Park now has a pylon sign to advertise its businesses including the Walmart Distribution Center,
American Woodmark, Wright Repair, and BWI (Butterworth Industries).  This multi-tenant sign is internally
illuminated with LEDs providing a nice, bright-white illumination for the sign faces.  The tenant faces are flat
with digitally printed graphics while the header cabinet has pan formed faces with digitally printed graphics. 

Rieth-Riley is an industry leader in asphalt and concrete paving, site preparation and excavation, bridge construction, and underground utility installation . Because they supply asphalt to a huge area, there is constant traffic through the plant at all hours of day and night. They simply don’t have time for inefficient exterior safety lighting, so they called Huston Electric for a much-needed upgrade.

Huston Electric recently upgraded the lighting in Milestone’s Lafayette location. Their 12 existing 1100 watt metal halide fixtures were inefficient and expensive to operate, costing them over $5,000 a year! We installed new 400 watt Cooper Lighting HBLED fixtures, for a utility cash rebate of over $1,000. The energy savings for these new fixtures will be over $3,000 a year, not to mention maintenance savings of $1,500 since they will never have to change a lamp.
