Andy Bachman currently oversees the Engineering, Electrical Testing & Maintenance, and Automation & Controls divisions while interfacing with all of the Company’s operations. This allows him to help support construction projects and standalone engineering projects, electrical testing, facilities maintenance, and all work related to automation & controls.
Marking his 30th year in 2021, Andy has been with Groves since 1991. Though he holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kentucky in Mechanical Engineering, he did what most members of Groves’ upper-management team did; he worked his way to the top. He started out working in a crew setting poles to gain invaluable experience. With a firm grasp on how the business operated, over many years he was able to work in design, estimating and operations management. Andy is driven with a strong passion to constantly develop and improve the Company’s service capabilities and competitive advantages.
Andy’s extensive technical background along with hands on practical experience allows him to be an asset to the company on many fronts. Andy is a registered professional engineer and also maintains electrical certifications and electrical contractor’s licenses in multiple states. As Andy says, “the job is never boring. We will take a project no one else will touch and complete it. That’s what we like to do!”
