Jimmy and I spent the majority of our careers working for Florida Power Corporation/Progress Energy, now Duke. Jimmy started on the shovel and worked his way to Distribution Field Supervisor. I started in clerical and moved up to my last position working in the field as a Service Coordinator. In 2004 we decided I needed to be home with the boys so I left the company and focused my efforts on my then hobby, Lineman Barn. I am happy to celebrate 12 years in business in 2015!
Beginning in late 2015, Austin took over operations of the store. He is quickly learning and enjoying working with our line families. He has a couple of years under his belt working both transmission and distribution, but for now is happy serving through the Lineman Barn.
Our background and experiences have led us to a place in our lives we are proud to be at. The Lineman Barn is the industry leader in apparel and products for power linemen and their families. Our facebook page boasts thousands of followers and has jokingly been called the CNN of Line Work. Our involvement in the industry naturally lead us to form a job board where people can search jobs, post their resume and top employers can advertise for the best candidates!
Our proudest accomplishment is the smiles we put on the families of Linemen in this trade and the help we bring them in their darkest hour during an accident or injury. Our family is honored to serve the families of this trade and we thank you for allowing us to do so.
