July 07 Businessexcellence E-J Electric Installation 87 In a year’s time the Yankee Stadium, home of New York’s beloved baseball team, will be torn down and reduced to rubble. Out of the ashes will rise a new, state-of-the-art sports facility to rival the best in the world. The timetable is tight. “There’s no room for slippage,” said Tony Mann, president of E-J Electric Installation (EJEI). “The new stadium has to be ready for the start of the 2009 season.” The lights have to come on, the elevators and HVAC has to work, everything has to be in place. The electrical installation work has been entrusted to Mann’s company, in no small part due to the reputation it has established for excellence, and for delivering on time and to specification—or better. “We’ve grown E-J Electric in a lot of different areas, from power generation to installations for financial services, such as the $50 million contract for the Bank of America at 1111 Avenue of the Americas in New York City,” he said. “That is a mission-critical project that starts from the Con Edison stabs and runs to around 300 electrical panels. We’re installing four 2.4MW multi-module uninterruptible power supply (UPS) units; six 2MW generators that had to be lifted to the seventh floor, with a redundant power system through the whole building.” Cabling runs to around 300 miles, through 68 miles of conduit, which is pretty impressive. But it’s not the biggest project EJEI has undertaken in the past few years. It has been involved in the construction of two 500MW power plants, one for New York Power Authority and the other for Astoria Energy. There aren’t many companies that have the resources or the expertise to undertake one project of that size: EJEI has been running both simultaneously. EJEI was established in 1899, so it can be said to be in its third century of operations. With revenues in the region of $160 million in fiscal 2005 and around 600 employees, this Queens, NYC-based company is the oldest, and probably the largest independent electrical installation and contracting company in the US. It’s still family-owned; Tony Mann is a grandson of
