MENANDS, N.Y.—Celebrating its silver anniversary and 4th generation in the Kasselman family, the Capital Region’s leading commercial electrical contractor Kasselman Electric gathered with clients, partners, elected officials, family and friends at its Broadway headquarters on Tuesday, marking the occasion with a small ceremony and a big new wave of charitable giving.
Kasselman Electric announced a $7,500 donation to commemorate the 75th anniversary, to be given to the Vanderheyden children, adult and family service agency of Wynantskill. In addition, for the first time in its history, Kasselman Electric launched an annual scholarship for young women interested in learning the electrical trade through Hudson Valley Community College.
“Our 75th anniversary is not only about recognizing the excellent work of our women and men over the years, made possible by our many fruitful partnerships with the area’s most prestigious developers and projects,” said Becky Kasselman, president and CEO. “This anniversary is also about recognizing that New York’s Capital Region is our true business partner. Its people and culture give our family and company so much: a vibrant life, a place to call home, and many opportunities to safely and responsibly serve the region with the highest-quality tradesmanship in the commercial electrical industry. We’re honored to have been trusted by our clients for the last 75 years, and we’re eager to keep going for another 75.”
Kasselman Electric welcomed a robust crowd to its 80,000 square foot facilities in Menands, its home since 2019 after moving from a historic location on Broad Street in Albany. The company spun-off an affiliate residential and commercial solar electricity provider, Kasselman Solar, which is headquartered next door to the legacy company.
“Local businesses are both the backbone of our economy and the heart of our communities,” said Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy. “Thank you to President and CEO Becky Kasselman for continuing to lead by example through commitment, dedication and delivering a high-quality product. The start of a scholarship to help young women learn an electrical trade is a generous investment in the future. Congratulations!”
“It was an honor to attend today’s event and recognize Becky Kasselman and her team for the exceptional community partner they have been for the last 75 years,” stated Assemblymember Phil Steck. “Kasselman Electric’s membership in the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and its relationship with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers assures that their customers are obtaining the most qualified firm available with the most skilled workers in the industry. Having grown from its original location in Albany’s South End to its current Menands location, Kasselman Electric is positioned for success well into the future.”
