Billerica, MA — Interstate Electrical Services Corp. held its annual Services Awards ceremony at its Operations Center facility in Tewksbury on Sept. 22.

Jim Alibrandi, president, Interstate Electrical Services, Corp., recognized the graduating class of electrical and assembler apprentices and saluted Interstate employees who’ve been with the company from 10 to 40 years. Alibrandi also thanked seven long-term employees who will be retiring this year.

Alibrandi presented a special award to Luiza Mills, vice president of human resources and public relations, for her outstanding effort during the height of the pandemic to keep the company up-to-date with the rapidly changing information about Covid and regulations. Her guidance provided staff with the necessary tools to keep Interstate’s projects running and in compliance in all six New England states.

Edward Palleschi, undersecretary at the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation, attended the ceremony and presented Interstate with a certificate of appreciation for the company’s contribution to the community. During his speech, he highlighted the longevity of service of Interstate employees.

Palleschi explained the reason this new award was conceived by his office is to “recognize exemplary licensees who deliver quality and take pride in their work.”

“I have a great appreciation for our team at Interstate,” said Alibrandi. “A team that takes care of and supports each other will always survive and succeed, no matter what the challenge. To me, our actions said it all. The team’s commitment to showing up and working on our projects safely during the pandemic allowed us to meet and exceed customer expectations. We truly have an amazing team.”
