St. Louis County Honors Aschinger Electric President Emily Martin With 2019 Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) Award

Aschinger Electric President Emily Martin is being honored for her business and civic leadership by St. Louis County government. Martin was named the winner of the county’s 2019 Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) Award. The award honors “outstanding business acumen, industry leadership and community service.” It was presented during St. Louis County’s inaugural vendor fair on September 18, 2019 at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

“Emily leads by example,” said Doug Martin, executive vice president of the St. Louis Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association. “She’s a leader in both her business and our NECA chapter and devotes countless hours to improving our industry and the St. Louis community.”

Aschinger is among the region’s largest electrical contractors and among the largest women-owned businesses according to the St. Louis Business Journal. It is also one of the nation’s Top 600 Specialty Contractors, according the industry trade publication Engineering News Record (ENR). Aschinger was founded in 1940 in St. Louis and Martin is the fourth generation in the electrical contracting business.

“Emily is strategically growing Aschinger’s business opportunities, expanding its services,” noted Frank Jacobs, business manager, IBEW Local 1. “We have been proud to partner with her firm for decades on its many diverse electrical and communications projects.” Under Martin’s leadership, Fenton-based Aschinger has expanded its service to build and maintain commercial electrical needs. Its key recent projects include:

  • St. Louis County Library branch modernization
  • Renovations to the GatewayArch grounds including improvements to the Arch tram
  • Robert A. Young Federal Building seismic renovation
  • Ameren Missouri community solar array

In 2018, Martin grew Aschinger’s workforce to 170 with the merger with Briner Electric.

Martin is president of the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors
Association (NECA). NECA partners with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 form the Electrical Connection, a business development and civic leadership organization for the electrical industry. Martin serves on the AGC of Missouri Diversity Committee and the NECA National Diversity Engagement Council.

“Emily is well known to business and civic organizations locally and statewide,” said Jim Curran, executive vice president, Electrical Connection. “She’s an invaluable resource to the state as we help Missouri adapt to new technology that is changing the energy, electrical and communications industry.”

In addition, Martin serves on the St. Louis County Electrical Examining Board which oversees electrical contracting licensing in the county. She is also an executive board member of AAIM Employer’s Association and serves on the board of Habitat for Humanity – St. Louis and the capital campaign committee for Tower Grove Park.

Martin earned her law degree from University of Missouri – Kansas City and her degree in history from Fontbonne University.

  • “We were quite pleased with Aschinger.  Our previous infrascan company wasn’t nearly as thorough.”

  • “We truly appreciate your efforts in all aspects of the construction process, and hope that we will soon be working together again on another project.”

  • “Our project was never typical, could become unsafe at any time, was always sensitive to production and yet from the beginning your team has always looked after our best interest. Mike House and Scott Strumpler did an exceptional job!”

  • “I would like to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to Aschinger for a great job. Everyone involved was knowledgeable and professional. This was a monumental achievement for both Duke and Aschinger and we should be proud of the results.”

  • “I just received a phone call from Brian Sword at Gander Mountain to tell me how happy he is with the Fenton install. Please let Aschinger know that we appreciate their efforts. Nothing better than getting this type of call, especially with the eyes on this one. This is a team effort from design, engineering and implementation to make this happen.”
