Bus and Wire Division

Welding aluminum bus is how we got started in 1977 and it was the core of the company for the first decade. Our division is capable of welding and installing bus and wire systems anywhere in the country. We have the supervision, equipment and experienced welders to compliment your firm's needs. We offer TIG, MIG, Heli- arc and SMAW welding processes. Since 1977 we have welded miles of aluminum bus on hundreds of projects ranging from 69kV to 500kV. We have worked with major power company crews, substation contractors, REAs, Co-ops, municipals and private developers in over 900 installations. We have always been on time and within budget, and have never had a failed system. We can also provide your material needs for bus and/or wire systems.

As one of the most respected electric utility contractors in the United States, we have a proven track record of safety, effective time and cost management, and working well with clients and subcontractors. We explore the “give and take” method as much as possible, which eliminates paperwork. This method and mind frame has worked for us since 1977 and we have proven that it works, it is just one of the ways that we manage time and costs.

Staffing Projects

NCC is a IBEW union contractor and have a core of 40 experienced certified welders at our disposal. Our welders are crossed trained in multiple forms of welding and fabrication and we have new welders going through our extensive training program consistently.
