How I can help you
After 6 years in the Navy as a nuclear submarine electrical operator I returned to my roots as a owner of a stud farm for Belgian horses. In that setting for the next 15 years I was active in general farming, logging and sawmill operations deep in the hardwood forests of Eastern Ohio. In 1988 I relocated to Manatee County, Florida and started Atwood Associates Inc. which served as the parent company of my travel agency, my Real Estate sales endeavors and franchiser of Security Alarm companies (7) throughout central Florida. Included in that corporate umbrella is a manufacturing plant for the production of Atwood Herbal Equine Conditioner for race, contest and performance horses.
I hold 5 state certified licenses from the state of Florida which include, Master Electrical (Electric Only) , Unlimited Electrical ( All Electrical systems), Master Security and Fire Alarms, Real Estate Associate, Radon Measurement Specialist, and a Florida drivers license!!
Atwood Electric Inc was covered under the masters license and my other Union Company named Indigo Electic Inc. signatory to the I.B.E.W. local 915 in Tampa, Florida was covered by the Unlimited Electrical license
