Halco Testing Services is now a NETA Accredited Company!

NETA, the InterNational Electrical Testing Association, is pleased to add Halco Testing Services to its community of electrical testing companies committed to meeting the ever-increasing demand for qualified testing firms and personnel.

Halco Testing Services evolved from a construction company, with origins dating back to 1949, into an organization focused solely on testing. Harold Orum formed the original company in 1976 and transferred business management to Don Genutis and Keith Orum in 2013. The company serves Southern California out of its original Los Angeles location.

Halco maintains a full staff of experienced personnel, including project managers, engineers, and technicians, who promote a team concept to ensure operative, on-time completion of all work. Maintenance and acceptance testing services for low- medium-, and high-voltage equipment include traditional testing services, power monitoring, power engineering studies, and no-outage testing. Typical customers cover a wide range of businesses, from commercial high-rise office facilities, hotels, and movie studios to power plants, hospitals, renewable power facilities, consulting engineers, and electrical contractors.

Halco is a NECA member, affiliated with the IBEW, and certified to perform California Title 24 lighting controls acceptance. “Halco is proud to become a NETA Accredited organization and looks forward to being an integral part of the NETA organization,” says Halco President Don Genutis. “Providing high-level acceptance and maintenance services is a vital and integral part of our success.

Achieving NETA accreditation is no easy task, and we applaud Halco Testing Services on this milestone event,” says Ron Widup, CEO of Shermco Industries and current president of NETA. “Organizations earning the NETA Accredited Company designation play an important part in advancing the electrical power systems industry and assuring electrical power system safety and reliability.
