For nearly 100 years, our team of specialists has provided electrical installation and maintenance, data communications design and construction, sound engineering services, and more to homeowners, commercial and industrial organizations. Safety, quality, efficiency and reliability are more than just words to us — they’re a promise and guarantee we make to our customers every time.
Founded in Lansing, Michigan, F.D. Hayes is a fourth-generation, family-run and women-owned business. As a trusted company, we’ve worked with thousands of families and businesses in the Greater Lansing region and across the state to produce innovative electrical solutions. No matter your electrical or telecommunication system issue, our team is ready and excited to help you solve it.
As a Lansing-based, family-run business, it’s not uncommon to see multiple generations of family working side by side at F.D. Hayes. We strive to be out and active in our community and support the people who support us. Family and community are the core of our company and the key to our success.
Safety and quality are always top of mind at F.D. Hayes. Our team approaches every job with our best foot forward, and we will not leave a site until the job is done and done right.
Throughout the years, our team has remained a leader in the electrical and data communications industries by staying agile and on the forefront of technology. We encourage our staff’s personal and professional development so they can bring their best selves and ideas to work each day. We are not afraid to try new things or think about problems in a completely different way to find groundbreaking, creative solutions for our clients.
We are dedicated to leaving our communities — and our planet — better and cleaner than we found it. F.D. Hayes continues to minimize the environmental impact of projects through efficient project management techniques and the innovative application of modern light controls, smart building system integration and energy management systems.
Our Quality Promise
We have been known for our high-quality work in the Lansing area and around the state for nearly 100 years. We are committed to approaching each project with clear minds, a strategic process, and unmatched precision and attention to detail. From leadership to new hires, every staff member at F.D. Hayes is trained above and beyond requirements from the state because, to us, quality is who we are and what you deserve.
We have developed and maintained an extensive training program that exceeds industry standards and State of Michigan requirements. To give our customers the quality installation they deserve and to ensure the safety of our employees, we annually invest in the best equipment and training available in the market. Annually, our employees receive training direct from manufacturers such as Generac, Commscope, Carehawk and Systimax, to name a few.
Commitment to Safety
Safety is a top priority to us and our customers. It is a constant consideration, whether we’re in the office or at a job site. We are devoted to successfully implementing and continuously improving our programs. Over the past century in the industry, we believe we have perfected a safety program that works.
Our team has developed a company-wide safety program to help train and reinforce safety standard and practices. The F.D. Hayes Safety Program is a management-driven curriculum built through a cooperative effort on behalf of every employee of our company.
In addition to weekly use of the NECA Safety Meeting App, we have our own in-depth training program. It includes confined space, lock out/tag out, NEC update, respirable silica, personal protective equipment, asbestos, lead, COVID-19 and First Aid/CPR training, among other things. We know the importance of professional training in our industry and are proactive in this area.
