Pac/West understands that in order to sustain a healthy economy and achieve top-notch results in the labor and construction industry, we need to support organizations and apprenticeship programs that teach and employ the most skilled and productive workers in their industry.

Our work in brand development, advertising, collateral production, electronic communications, social media, event planning and advocacy can help position your company or organization as a leader of sustainable energy and economic development.


Contractors from the National Electrical Contractors Association Oregon-Columbia Chapter and union electricians from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 48 (NECA/IBEW Local 48) have worked together for decades as part of a labor-management committee trust formed under the Taft-Hartley Act.

Pac/West has provided public relations and marketing services to this unique partnership since 1999. Throughout our longstanding relationship, we have helped establish a strong brand and expanded market share for the partnership.

NECA and IBEW Local 48 celebrated their 100-year anniversaries in 2013 and we worked hard to showcase this impressive milestone. We designed a new logo that showed strength and durability, released a video series and documentary to promote the historic and ongoing actions of NECA/IBEW Local 48, organized an exhibit for display at the Oregon Historical Society and published a book documenting the rich history.



Through our focused and dedicated work, we have built a customer base for NECA/IBEW Local 48 that has expanded market share and positioned its members as leaders in energy policy and innovation among elected officials, opinion leaders and the public at large.
