A Found Love for All Things Science
1975 | A Young Bob Herzig Begins to Desire a Life Filled with Science
Enthralled with all things electrical, Bob Herzig loved science growing up. He continued his love by entering the 1977 Kansas City Science Fair, where his project took third place. There, he began to envision being involved in the scientific or electrical community for the rest of his life.
The Founding of a Dream
1980 | Learning & Teaching Electrical Engineering Leads to a Business Idea
He continued his journey throughout the 1980-1990's by receiving his engineering degree and MBA, leading him to become an adjunct professor at the University of Kansas from 1994-2002. While still teaching classes, Bob decided to start Bob Herzig & Associates in 2000, a company devoted to product sales, consulting, and training in the electrical world.
Hard Times Lead to New Business
2003 | Tragic Events in the US Lead to a Possible Shortcoming
After the events of 9/11 shocked the world and halted business for the new company, Bob Herzig & Associates was not working out as Bob hoped it would. But in 2004, when the NFPA 70E started coming out with harsher regulations, he saw his opportunity to get the business back on its feet.
The One Where They Change Their Name
2004 | Expanding Business Leads to a Need for a New Name
In 2004, the company began to take off with four new clients that paved the way for Arc Flash Studies. OSHA began searching for violations that businesses weren't ready for, and Bob saw the need for a slight adjustment to better suit the clientele. That adjustment came with a new name for the company and its expanding employee base: Herzig Engineering.
Expanding Across the Nation
2004 | The Growth of the Company Leads to a Need for More Space
With the desire to expand nationally, Bob acquired licensing in all 50 states to ensure he could service anyone who needed Herzig Engineering's services. Between 2004-2017, Herzig served more than 2,500 locations across the US. As employee numbers were expanding, Bob saw the need to give the company a larger space in 2018.
A New Home
2019 | The Physical and Intangible Expansion of Herzig
After turning an old indoor soccer arena into an office space, Herzig Engineering has become and continues to be a full-service electrical safety provider for companies worldwide. As much as Herzig has changed, there have been equally as many changes to our clientele, but Bob continues to keep meaningful relationships with new or familiar companies, with a goal of expanding to electrical and workplace safety within the next 10 years.
