OUR TEAM

"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." 

--Andrew Carnegie

Allan Cook

President

As the president of Alco Building Solutions, Inc. (ABS) I would like to give you a little background on our company, sharing some of our values and our commitment to the community as well. ABS started in 1995 as ALCO ELECTRIC and became an "Electrical & General Construction" firm in 2004, incorporating that same year.

Safety, craftsmanship, integrity, technical knowledge and collaboration are values that we consider important within our business. We have been fortunate to positively impact many people and communities in our work. It's humbling to be contributing to those around us, doing something within an industry that we are so passionate about.

 

Since our inception, our firm has completed numerous projects in the fields of Electrical (commercial, industrial, institutional and large residential), General Construction, EV Charging Infrastructure, Facility Maintenance, and Energy Services. In putting our values to practice, I have served as a Chairperson for Rebuilding Together (2001-2006), Economic Development Commissioner (1/06/2004-12/31/2007) with the City of Duarte,CA, and I have served on the "Route 66 Parade" committee for over 10 years as well. I have also served as the President of the Duarte, CA Elks Lodge. We live out our values through our actions... It's that simple.

Duarte, California, Aug. 9, 2018 – WE’RE GROWING: Alco Building Solutions, Inc. (ABS) is ecstatic to welcome to our team a new Project Manager, Diana Vierra.

Prior to working with ABS, Diana’s experiences included working nationally in a commercial aspect for over 10 years but honed her skills to the residential aspect due to family obligations. Working for a residential General Contractor gave her the insight to harvest the “go-to” skills that allowed her to deal plainly with all aspects of construction. Eleven years ago, David, Diana’s husband, owned a construction company and invited Diana to execute growth for their company. The business established itself as a design-build construction firm that served Southern California. At that time, she was responsible for all areas of their business, with a keen focus on design which allocated the rewards to the build agreement. Clients always come first with Diana.


She brings to our ABS team an infinite amount of value based on her experience. Including a strong business sense to daily activities as she orchestrates small to large construction projects.
