Michaels Energy Celebrates 30 Years of Business!
La Crosse, WI – March 24, 2014 – Michaels Energy is celebrating 30 years of business this week! Since its founding in 1984, Michaels has maximized cost effective energy savings for efficiency programs, facilities, and processes through both energy efficiency and building system design services.
Michaels’ dedication to this mission and its clients has led to the success the firm sees today. “Our success and longevity is the result of the hard work of a lot of people, and our dedication to proactively meeting our clients’ needs,” said company President, Dave Waffenschmidt.
In addition to its dedication to its clients, Michaels has a strong corporate commitment to its employees and environmental responsibility. Michaels was recently named a “Best Firm to Work for” by ZweigWhite, based largely on the responses employees provided to a survey distributed by ZweigWhite. Michaels inspires employees to perform at the highest level by creating an environment where they feel valued and can clearly see their contribution to the overall mission and success of the firm.
Corporate sustainability is evident at Michaels. The La Crosse headquarters office achieved Gold certification under the LEED for Commercial Interiors (CI) rating system; more than 95% of La Crosse office employees enjoy views to the outdoors from their desks; and the League of American Bicyclists recognized Michaels as a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB).
Michaels is thankful for opportunities given to them by their clients and their employees, and looks forward to maintaining and enhancing those relationships over the next 30+ years. Vice President, Jeff Ihnen, notes, “Thirty years in business is a laudable milestone but we look forward to the challenge of becoming the company we want to be – and the journey!”
