How We Work

Since the company became incorporated in 1991, it is our belief that technical competence, exceptional customer service, and competitively priced products and services are the keys to successful installations and resulting long-term business relationships.

The Linecom operating structure is based on a strong foundation of project management with clear communication and customer focus as the critical links. Through our growing industry experience, our project management skills have proven efficient for us and for our clients. Building up from the foundation, our strategic relationships with vendors ensure that work is high quality and projects are completed on time.

We include sales, engineering, operations, and technical personnel at the outset of a project to accurately plan all of the steps involved. We manage our material suppliers using a just-in-time efficiency model. Site supervision translates all information, along with real-time structural or operational requirements, into a plan. Field technicians are well equipped to deal with contingencies and trained to identify challenges in order to deliver on-time and on-budget results.
