MORRISTOWN, TN – Orbit Industries, Inc. has appointed Todd Albright to head its new Prefabricated Assembly Service Division. Todd will be responsible for building the production space, procuring machine tools, and staffing and training production labor.
Orbit expects its Prefab Division will be operational before the end of 2018. For nearly a decade, the company produced basic electrical assemblies from its West Coast distribution center (DC). The opening of this new Prefab Division gives Orbit customers access to fully-wired assembly services. Orbit’s expanded facility space also lets distributors quote kitting and staged delivery services as well.
Before Orbit, Todd Albright was in electrical construction for 20 years. As the Planning Manager at San Diego-based Baker Electric, he managed BIM and Prefabrication Operations; built a pre-planning department; and coordinated with Foremen and Project Managers. He also held General foreman and foreman roles at Gould Electric and Swinson Electric. Besides his field experience, Albright is proficient in BIM, estimating, and Bluebeam© collaboration software.
“I’ve been involved with prefab since day one in the trade,” Albright says. Todd has seen the benefits of electrical “prefab” first hand. In his prior roles, he helped increase project margins through improved planning. He has also seen a decrease in job site injury through the use of externalized work.
Albright is excited to help Orbit sell prefabrication as a value-added service. These services will help contractors bid more jobs; break into new markets; and keep good electricians in the field longer. Distributors also benefit from Orbit Industries’ close ties with national electrical contracting firms.
Besides time-saving prefab innovations and mounting solutions, Orbit Industries Inc. offers distributors over 6,000 products across eleven diverse product lines – branded as “Your Universal Source for Electrical Products”. Such products include electrical junction boxes, weatherproof products, NEMA enclosures, fittings, ventilation fans, outdoor LED lighting, and more.Orbit
