Many of those projects are well known hospitals, schools, churches and commerce buildings in Northeast Ohio.  Our engineering goal is to meet or exceed NFPA ®  lightning protection standards, a standard that has been protecting structures since 1904. Designing, installing and consulting on UL Master Label Systems (UL96A) and lightning protection systems in accordance with LPI-175, NFPA 780 is what we do best. The owner of Midwest believes in quality. He is constantly consulting with architects, roofing contractors, electrical contractors & engineers about latest lightning protection system codes & standards. As an LPI Master Installer, Mark spends much of his time quoting and designing systems. But don’t be surprised to find him in the field with a tool belt. He believes in leading by example and the hands-on approach to quality control. The goal at Midwest is to protect your home, your business and your world. OSHA and Union Compliance Midwest Lightning & Grounding takes the safety of our crew and those with who they work very seriously.
