The Industrial Services segment of The Churchill Corporation consists of CSG. CSG has four divisions, being Broda Construction, Laird Electric, Laird Constructors and the specialty services division, which consists of Fuller Austin and Northern Industrial. These companies service industrial clients with electrical, mechanical, concrete, insulation, maintenance, dirt-moving and other related services.
The industrial services divisions have the ability to contract with clients jointly or independently. Management believes that offering fully integrated industrial services through CSG has allowed and will continue to allow Churchill to pursue larger projects and contracts within the industrial environment.
