Mount Man of Mobile was formed in 2013 to provide professional television installation and other installation services along the Gulf Coast. For residential and commercial clients, they provide audio/video installation, home improvement services and more.
Licensed with the Alabama Board of Electrical Contractors and the Alabama Board of Electronic Security, the company’s mission is to provide quality, honesty and reliable services to a diverse clientele, whether electrical, home improvement or security systems.
The company has recently developed a “Fix It” program with Bishop State Community College in which it recruits directly from the program and trains workers on electrical fundamentals and safety. Quality service begins with its employees, and Mount Man subscribes to annual evaluations to help improve its staff and offers continuing education courses.
Mount Man’s target market includes homeowners, investors, small business owners and commercial construction. Expanding its services has helped the company reach new clients, and creating relationships with area vendors has helped it keep the supplies it needs for its clients on hand and readily available.
“We pride ourselves in our overall experience,” said Tori Turner, chief of operations. “At Mount Man, we separate ourselves from our competitors with our organization skills, our promptness, our reliability, fair pricing and honesty. We resolve issues immediately and communicate on every aspect of the job from start to finish. Our reviews speak for us; it’s an experience.”
