Whether you are looking for an electrical contractor for your commercial, industrial, residential or emergency backup needs, Tork Electric in Sandpoint is the place to turn.
Owners and husband-and-wife team Dan and Brissa Peterson have deep roots in Sandpoint going several generations back. Both born and raised in Sandpoint, they only ever left the area to attend college, with the intent of coming back. And they did, continuing the legacy with their daughter Josephine, who was born in Sandpoint one year ago.
Dan and Brissa are the proud local owners and operators of Tork Electric, an electric contractor service located right here in Sandpoint; Dan the master electrician and Brissa the administrative manager. Priding themselves for being a small-town company with the ability to take on big-town projects, Tork Electric has a knowledgeable and experienced workforce capable of taking on large projects, with skills ranging beyond custom homes. The company has completed small hydro plants, aircraft manufacturing buildings, communication towers, large office spaces and emergency backup systems for not just the home but for medical offices and large businesses.
“When we finish a custom home or large commercial project and sit back to look at what we have accomplished, it’s pretty amazing,” Brissa says. “You start with nothing sometimes; and in the end have a beautiful, unique, fully operational project. We take great pride in our work.”
When Tork Electric is done with your space, it won’t just be functional but it will look great too. They make sure that all switches and outlets are lined up perfectly, all electrical conduits are bent just right so the sweeps look uniform, light fixtures line up, and more. “In the end, when we look at what we did, we are proud of it,” adds Brissa. “We are honored to put our name on it.”
Another rewarding part of running Tork for Dan and Brissa is that they are employing people and helping them to support their families. To them, their employees truly are like family. And in fact, two of them are! Dan’s brother and father work with them. The Petersons don’t look at their employees as working for them but with them.
“Our team is just that, a team,” Dan says. “We work well together and are always willing to help each other out to finish the job.”
At Tork Electric, you will find a company with determination. They have been a part of a handful of projects in town including The Hive, Kochava and Quest, which were under extremely tight deadlines. But with their determination and hard work, the electric contractors at Tork repeatedly pull through and get the job done. They will even go the extra mile and work seven days a week when necessary.
The Petersons care about their business and their community. They participate in PBCA (Panhandle Builders Contractors Association) and donate financially to PBCA and the Chafe 150.
“We love what we do, we love helping people and we love our community,” says Brissa. “We feel so fortunate to have been able to open our business right here in Sandpoint where we grew up. Not everyone is lucky enough to live and work in Sandpoint, and we don’t take that for granted. We love it here and will never leave.”
