John Crane Customer Delight
This was the first time that John Crane has worked with Block Electric. We are very pleased with the results of the job .It was a fairly large project with a number of challenges and some shifting deadlines. The work was completed in the timeline dictated by our business.
However, Ifeel it’s important to let you know that the key to the success of this job was Kevin Neumann. Kevin was professional from beginning to end. He exhibited total respect to our employees and work rules at John Crane. Kevin was always willing to adjust his schedule to meet the job requirements. He did a terrific job handling the day to day details and communicated any special needs well in advance.
My job would not be complete without letting you know what a pleasure it was working with Kevin on this project and hopefully additional projects in the future.

I want to take a moment to thank Block Electric for another job well done. While we are not quite 100% complete yet, I know you all have gone out of your way to get this job done right and completed on time to the best of your abilities. I especially want to recognize and praise Eric’s work and diligence. I am sure this job would not be where it is at today without his expertise and leadership.
There were many obstacles on this project he had to deal with and work through to keep us on time, many others may have thrown in the towel. Once again, as with all the many projects Block Electric has done for VVSD I am extremely satisfied with the final product, completed in a timely manner. It is because of the people on your staff like Eric that makes this happen.

Pepper Construction Expresses Appreciation to Block Team for Successful Completion
I thought it was necessary to formally compliment Gerald Martin’s performance at the Marshall Field’s State Street Exterior Lighting Project. His commitment to the project and tireless work ethic exemplifies Block’s dedication to a higher level of service. It was a pleasure to work with Gerald’s positive attitude and upbeat personality. The project’s success would not have been achieved without Gerald and the Block trades personnel. Thank you to Gerald Martin and his crew for a job well done.
United Airlines Experiences “Customer Delight” working with the Block Team
I would like to take a minute to express my appreciation to you and your people. As you are aware Block Electric was awarded the contract for our UPS Replacement Projectwhich started in 2003 and ended in 2004. My responsibility as Building Operations Manager was to oversee the project for Facility Maintenance. I worked each and every day with Block Electric personnel and their subcontractors. The project went without a hitch, and your foreman, Tom Sieck, did an excellent job coordinating and completing many different aspects of the project. As a matter of fact, every MOP (Method of Procedure), was not only accomplished without a problem, each was completed ahead of the schedule.
The real reason I felt compelled to write you was your willingness to help us with a crisis that occurred on Thursday, December 23, 2004. You came here to United immediately. I asked you if it were possible to have Tom Sieck on the job. Not only did you accommodate that request, you coordinated a team of your employees and subcontractors to accomplish the transformer switch in what I regard as an unbelievable short amount of time. We were back up and running in less that 24 hours from when our transformer blew. They worked together as a team not wasting any time or effort. My compliments to Greg Gorski, Jason Carline, Mike Kriesement, and especially Tom Sieck.
One of your company’s mission statements is “We dedicate ourselves to create a higher level of service which will result in what we call: CUSTOMER DELIGHT.” Well here at United Airlines World Headquarters Facility Maintenance we have certainly experienced that, “Customer Delight” working with Block Electric.
