Legacy of Leadership

Many of you are aware of the remarkable history of leadership over the past 100 years at Tri-State Armature. We have been blessed to be led by only 5 different Presidents over the years. You are aware of the sudden and unanticipated loss of our last President. We are asking for your help as we seek the individual who will become the 6th president of Tri-State.

We are looking for that leader who will build upon our past but also enable us to move into the rapidly changing future of the industrial electrical industry. The next leader should be someone who ensures that we are 100 years young. 

Powering Industry

Our business model has uniquely positioned TSA in the industrial electrical industry. We love having the capability to serve our many customers in multiple ways including industrial construction installations, motor repair and a deep inventory of parts.

We desire that our next leader take a look at this business model to ensure that we are operating at maximum effectiveness while also looking at creative opportunities to grow our business in the future.
