A new owner, a new name

AUSTIN - When Nate Anderson of Weifield Group Contracting moved to Georgetown in July 2018, he met with local general contractors and vendors and inquired about electrical contractors with a good reputation in the industry and the community. The Denver-based company’s strategic planning committee, which meets twice a year, had been looking at expanding the services into new markets.


    “Austin has been a front runner in those meetings for us to expand,” says Anderson. “It would be the first city not in close proximity to Denver.”
    During Anderson’s inquiry, one local contractor stood out. Four months after moving to Georgetown, Weifield Group Contracting acquired Austin-based IDI Electric LLC.
    With the acquisition, IDI Electric will grow as well as Weifield Group Contracting Texas. IDI Electric co-owner Richard White will stay involved and become Weifield Group Contracting Texas’ chief operating officer. He will maintain the relationships he made over the years and extend those relationships into new clients as the company grows in the community. White’s son, Garrett, will remain involved with the newly acquired company as a project manager.
Anderson will filter in as the company’s Texas division president.
    Weifield Group Contracting was established in 2002. The business was initially run out of a garage, and today is the third largest electrical contractor in Colorado, according to Anderson.
    As the two companies come together, they will continue to office out of the IDI Electric offices before transitioning into a larger facility.
    “We are excited to be in the Austin market,” Anderson says. “We had been tracking Austin for three years before coming down here. I made the decision to come to Austin. It is an exciting city. We love the city and we’re just excited to grow and establish new relationships.”
