From Generation to The Meter

Behind the Video

Riggs Distler & Company, Inc. was founded in 1909. Our original mission was to represent manufacturers in the sale of infrastructure materials. We’ve come a long way in 110 years. We now offer construction services from generation to the meter.  In mid June 2019 we launched a complete overhaul of our website and marketing materials to better represent the kinds of work we perform.  To align with our reintroduction to the market, we wanted to pay homage to the energy and utility industries and how we support an ever-growing infrastructure.  We sought out to highlight the life cycle of energy in relation to the services we provide.

Riggs Distler’s core service offerings are in the Heavy Industrial, Generation and Utility industries. For Heavy Industrial clients, we provide construction, maintenance, repair, installation, and demolition services. On the Generation side, from coal plants to nuclear stations and the growing renewable energy field, our talented team of expert constructors, project managers and superintendents have the tools, training, and technology to complete projects of all scopes on time and on budget, always making safety our highest priority. When it comes to our Utility clients, Riggs Distler works every day to make sure that gas or electricity reaches the thousands of families and businesses dependent on them.

We encountered a few interesting challenges during the making of the video. Namely, how to show our gas, electric and renewable services tie into the grid and the meter? Power infrastructure is complex. Ultimately, we decided to represent each “type” of energy with white (electric), yellow (gas) and green (renewable).  Since Riggs Distler has both a gas and electric distribution capabilities it was also important to provide the distinction to the viewer. Did you notice the gas portion is actually running backwards? The purpose behind that decision was to call out the different type of energy and how gas is distributed from a main at the end of the street to the home.

There aren’t many companies out there that can do it all when it comes to power and utility. We’re proud to be part of the elite few.
