About Us

TPC prides itself on staying current with what the utility industry needs which is why we now have divisions: Power, Fiber, Wireless, Underground, and Design & Drafting. One of the best things about TPC is that our divisions can work separately or as a team, bringing multiple divisions onboard, to complete a project safely and efficiently.

The Power Division is one of the original divisions that started TPC! This division specializes in high voltage power construction and repair projects, including but not limited to distribution, transmission, substation, emergency restoration, ADSS (power space), and smart grid technology installation.

The Fiber Division is another original division of TPC, previously known as the Telecommunications Division but as the industry evolved, so has this division! The Fiber Division specializes in aerial fiber construction, maintenance, two-pole clean-up, and oversees all splicing work associated with fiber projects among many other capabilities.

The Wireless Division provides turnkey solutions for the deployment of infrastructure including but not limited to, full-suite construction services, smart cities, small cells, EV charging stations, testing and integration, and much more.

The Underground Division is now its own division, but TPC has a long history of completing underground placement projects for the Power, Fiber, and Wireless Divisions. Our capabilities include but are not limited to horizontal directional drilling, trenching, and rural broadband construction.

The Design & Drafting Division specializes in fiber plan & profile design and small cell design, as well as permitting.
