Rodney graduated from Hillsboro High School and received his electrical training at Laurel Oaks Vocational School in Wilmington, Ohio. After graduation, Rodney went into partnership with an experienced electrician, Al Drake who had 40 years experience. Al operated Drake Electric. D & P initials originally stood for Drake and Pack. Now D & P stands for "dependable partners in electric service."
Pack has clear goals for all jobs," to provide customers with safe wiring in their buildings and homes. The jobs we complete meet the National Electric Code standards. Also, we strive to provide high quality service by being respectful and fair with all our customers. We try to give our customers the options and let them decide what is best for their needs and budget."
Rodney's informal training began as a child. "When I was a kid, my family went to visit my Aunt Bertha in Dayton, Ohio. While the rest of the family was visiting, I ran to the garage where Uncle John was always working. He created new gadgets by combining his woodworking and electrical skills. When I arrived, Uncle John would eagerly show me his latest inventions and then joyfully chuckle. I was awe struck at his genius. Also during the late 60s and 70s, my dad and I would find some small broken appliances and fix them. Then take the newly condition appliances to the flea market to sale. I earned some extra cash. I guess I come by my skills naturally," said Rodney Pack.
After 35 years experience, Rodney is now passing those skills along to the next generation of electricians.
He joined the team in May 2015. Michael performs troubleshooting, completes projects and estimates. He graduated from Hillsboro High School in 2006. After graduation, he tried various career paths, but it was in the National Guards doing electrical work Michael found his niche.
"I feel like I should have known electrical work was what I wanted to do. Back in high school, I got my first training in troubleshooting and electrical work at a video store. It became my job to repair people's video games problems. I always enjoyed taking the games apart and looking through all the pieces to discover what went wrong and fix it. I still get the same joy out of working on homes for people today," said Michael Finzel
