A Tribute To Mr. David Ashpaugh
Being in business for 50 years is a great accomplishment. Being in business as a second generation family owned enterprise is amazing! In May, 1965 Dave Ashpaugh started the company in Westfield, Indiana. Still in Westfield, this electrical service, installation and repair company is setting the stage for the next 50 years.
