Congrats on retirement, Ray!

After 58 years with Martin Electric, we are honored and humbled to announce the retirement of Ray Iveson. In 1962, Ray was hired by George Martin Jr. as an apprentice and has ever since dedicated his life to the company. With a cigarette and coffee in hand, Ray was the first one on the job ready to take on any project with a quiet sense humor, kindness, can-do attitude and sophistication. 

As a foreman, Ray lead several teams in the successful completion of many transformative projects in downtown Albany such as Union Station, Fleet Bank, and 1st Church of Albany. Ray was always asked for by customers and can be largely credited for our longstanding relationship with MetLife which account he has been working on for the last 30 years!

Brian Hart had the good fortune of working under Ray as a 1st year apprentice at 158 State St (Verizon) pulling in underground feeders to C-switchgear in 4” rigid conduit. “Ray is a company man through and through. Between his knowledge of the trade, integrity and work ethic, I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor, foreman, and friend” says Brian.

Please help us in celebrating Ray and wishing him health and happiness in retirement!

On behalf of everyone at Martin, IBEW, MetLife and beyond, THANK YOU!
