Hellman Electric, LLC: A Unique and Powerful Player in Telecommunications

This Center Stage interview takes a deep dive into Hellman Electric and how their work is advancing wireless in New York City and beyond.

Hellman Electric stands out from the crowd because their parent company, Electra USA, has operations in 17 countries, bringing significant firepower to Hellman Electric. Their core competencies in mechanical and electrical work give Hellman the backing needed for large-scale bonding, insurance, and future growth.

Here in the U.S., Hellman Electric has three distinct divisions – heavy construction, interior, and datacom. While the datacom department is the focus for their friends and clients at NYSWA, it’s important to mention the others as well. Hellman Electric Datacom is a turnkey operation offering fiber installation, wireless / small cell construction, design builds, renewable energy, and electric vehicle charging stations, taking projects from beginning to end, all with the same efficient crews. It’s one-stop shopping for all your needs.

Hellman Electric is DOT certified in every aspect of the 5G process, allowing them to work on poles, remove them, dig them, and handle traffic signaling and lighting. This expertise is crucial when it comes to dealing with the complexities of wireless infrastructure in New York City.

The company is also responsible for hundreds of miles of fiber across all major carriers, thousands of small cells, and serves numerous customers, including most major carrier hotels in New York City.

And Hellman’s reach extends beyond New York City into Northern Jersey, Rockland and Westchester counties, and Southern Connecticut. Their expertise and resources know no bounds.

Let’s dive into a recent case study. Currently, two of the company’s divisions are working on JFK’s famous Terminal One project. They coordinated with the Port Authority and multiple carriers to relocate fiber optic networks into the AirTran tunnel until the new terminal is complete. It was a yearlong endeavor that truly showcased the company’s expertise and ability to handle complex projects.

As the President of the datacom division, Tom Caruso has a long history in the telecommunication industry. Starting as a technician at New York telephone, Tom climbed the ranks to become an engineer and eventually a design specialist at Bell Atlantic. After moving to Con Edison Communications for three years where he built their fiber network, he owned major electrical companies. Now, Tom leads Hellman Electric’s datacom division, overseeing its success and growth.

Mike Allen is the Director Of Business Development for the Datacom Division. Throughout his career, Mike has been an active member of NYSWA because he finds attending meetings and networking with industry professionals to be invaluable. He says that staying connected and informed is essential to building success in a tight-knit industry like telecom.

Hellman Electric’s skilled team of professionals ensures that every project is completed with precision and efficiency, delivering exceptional results. From initial planning to project completion, they work on the most demanding projects with tailored solutions, in New York City and beyond. This customer-centric approach has earned them a well-deserved reputation as leaders in the industry.
