Our Companies

All of the changes that have occurred in the life of Interstates reflect a desire to provide the public and our clients a clearer idea of what specific services our operating units perform.

The holding group and business unit leaders work together to build companies of enduring significance.

With the separate business units, Interstates is able to focus our resources, provide new opportunities for people within our organization, reach out to new and diverse clients—and most importantly, give an added depth to our customer service.

Since its inception, Interstates has seen significant growth within its companies and the industries in which we work.

The company has grown from its startup as a television sales business in the basement of John Franken’s home to a company with over 500 people working throughout the country on numerous commercial and industrial projects.

The commitment to understanding the client’s needs and delivering exceptional results has stayed constant and will continue to be the driving force behind our culture.
