It was more than 40 years ago when George J. Hayden Electric and Communications of Hazleton and Howard Organization of Bloomsburg launched their respective electrical contracting firms.
Over the years, the two companies shared a common philosophy – simple beginnings of hardworking owners with a dream for a family business to grow in the electrical construction trade while providing quality service to its customers and a great place to work for its employees.
Earlier this month, George F. Hayden, owner of George J Hayden, Inc., along with his business partner Usbaldo Trevino, Vice President of George J. Hayden, Inc., finalized the acquisition of Howard Organization, which marked its 45th anniversary in 2016. Howard Organization President Ralph Gitz and Vice President Joseph Graham said they considered several companies before selling to Hayden and Trevino. Howard Organization will be renamed The Howard Company and will continue to operate from its current facility at 1016 East 7th Street in Bloomsburg.
