Tru-Amp Corporation was organized in March of 1974 as a Mississippi Corporation under the name Tru-Amp Engineering Service, Inc. In June 1980 the company bought an existing electrical service company, merging the two and changing the name to Tru-amp Corporation. We have been providing electrical engineering services, infrared scanning, retrofitting, testing, inspecting, cleaning, adjusting, and appraising electrical distribution systems and apparatus continuously for thirty-nine years. Since its inception in 1974, Tru-amp’s management has concentrated all its resources toward providing quality engineering and testing services to its customers. Management has and will continue to broaden the scope of services through employee training and utilization of state of the art equipment and techniques. Employees attend continuing education classes and training seminars in order to provide our customers the most current technology available.
Tru-amp’s service area is primarily the Southeastern United States within a 1000-mile radius of Jackson, Mississippi. We have performed electrical testing and inspection services in twenty-six states; Tru-amp’s affiliation with the communications industry began in January of 1981 when a long-term contract for switchgear maintenance was established for all South Central Bell buildings in Louisiana. In March of 1981, Tru-amp began a similar switchgear maintenance program with South Central Bell in Mississippi. A contract was added for South Central Bell buildings in Alabama in 1984. Contracts for switchgear maintenance of AT&T buildings through the southern and eastern localities were added the same year. Those contracts have expanded each year to include such major communication centers as Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Dallas and Houston, Texas, Memphis, Tennessee, Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida. The maintenance contracts with South Central Bell now known as AT&T have continued since they were first established. In addition to BellSouth and AT&T, we have steadily added to our customer base industrial clients Nissan North America, Kellogg, Brown, and Root, Triad Nitrogen, Koch Nitrogen, Georgia-Pacific, Weyerhaeuser, and Uniroyal Chemical. For many of these we provide annual testing and maintenance, as well as troubleshooting and repair. Many federal buildings and United States postal facilities have used our services over the years. Hospitals to which we provide regular services include the V. A. Hospital, Mississippi Baptist Medical Center, University Medical Center and River Oaks in Jackson, Mississippi, North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, Mississippi, and Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We have been very successful in our ability to provide quality service to our customers with a large number of facilities and to establish and maintain databases for those customers.
