Services LLC's willingness to

Malko's dedication to

ness expanded its services over the years
from electrical contracting to the installation of low-voltage products, services and
systems; and the installation, construction
management and testing of distributed
antenna systems (DAS), Executive Vice
President and Partner Dennis Chmielewski
says. The company is in its third generation
of private ownership.
Malko also has divisions dedicated to
audiovisual and security systems. Each
of the company's divisions has a dedicated project manager and other staffing
resources. "Within our dedicated divisions,
we self-perform all aspects of our work
in-house," Pedergnana notes. "Part of the
Malko difference is that we have a principal
of the company directly involved in every
single project - that is a testament to our
dedication to customer satisfaction."
Malko's principals have extensive experience in electrical contracting and high-tech

The company's gradual addition of new
services and establishment of new divisions
led it three years ago to formally rebrand
itself as Malko Communication Services.
"What we've done is take the history of
Malko Electric and our technical service divisions and combine those under one roof,"
Pedergnana says. "This expansion was solidified with a partnership with Maron Electric,
another 90-year-old electrical contractor
who is one of the most diversified, progressive and capable companies in the field."
Malko applies its technical knowledge
to a variety of commercial, residential and
institutional sector projects throughout
the Chicago region. Malko's clients include
general contractors, building owners, and
public and governmental organizations, as
well as tenants and other end-users. Malko
is also known for partnering with other low
and high-voltage electrical contractors by
bringing their specialized service offerings
to their industry partners.
Many of the company's client relationships extend back several decades.
"What makes us strong is how we interact
with and value our partnerships with
our general contractor and construction
management partners," Pedergnana says.
