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.
