About us
Power made here

We work to skillfully construct, efficiently manage, and provide our clients with the assurance that comes with capability and grit.

Over the last twenty years, we've built our reputation on it.

Our history points to where we're headed

From our beginnings as linemen in the 90s to the founding of Magnum Power in 2004, we've grown from two to 170+ employees with a 350+ fleet and four locations.

As the demands on power infrastructure and the people who manage them became more complex, our purpose became clear; multiply the power of our partners by delivering high-performance, low-pressure projects through good process, grit and professional service.

Today we're building partnerships, securing next-generation talent, and positioning ourselves for the future.

One of the best crews I have ever had in 13 years of crew guiding

We had 85+ mph up on Camano Island, that … brought us a total of 250,000 customers with the loss of power. The amount of efficient, professional, safe, dedicated work ethic portrayed by your GF’s, Lineman, Apprentices, groundman, which was supported by all of Magnum’s management, allowed us to restore power to our customers by at least 2 days sooner.

Consider working with or joining one of the most dependable power infrastructure companies in the Pacific Northwest.

Authenticity

Be Real

Be real with yourself and your team.

We work in good faith and act in the best interests of our partners, the communities we serve, and the well-being of each other.

It starts with having the integrity to say what we mean and mean what we say. It’s often with a little humor, occasionally it's with concern, but every time it’s with good intention.

  • Be real, reliable, and ready to do the right thing.
  • The strength of our reputation is built one person and one project at a time. You’re here because we believe in you and your ability to make it stronger.
  • Growth happens when you build people up or work a situation out. If you don’t understand someone or something, take the time to ask, listen, and learn.  
Resilience

Have Grit

Lean in. Work safe, work smart.

We’re constructors, innovators, and safe operators. We lean into challenges, adapt, build solutions and shoulder the responsibility to succeed together.

As a team, we recognize that solving our customer’s problems is more than just fulfilling a contract—it’s about fulfilling a commitment to their success—and, in turn, our success.

  • We’ve worked through weather, schedules, a pandemic, and terrain that have shut others down. Grit is a shared strength. When needed, we’re ready.
  • Be safe. Always. Look out for your crew and commit to bringing them home safe, sound, and in good spirits.
  • Change is a given. The space between who you are today and who you are tomorrow is an opportunity to evolve. Take it on and adapt.
Excellence

Strive

Excel, laugh a little, and enjoy the journey.

Our ambition to achieve excellence in planning, innovation, and performance is driven by the reality that we’re building today’s infrastructure to power tomorrow’s potential.

We strive to deliver solutions built on clear expectations, smart processes, and professional service.

  • We celebrate success together. Let's own it and pursue it together.
  • Embedding your best into everything we do is a tall order with a big impact. Build on it. It will be recognized and respected.
  • If you see an opportunity to lead, lead. If you see someone who can lead, follow. Keep an eye on your ego—we've all got one—and learn to do both.
