The story of The Rockwell Group starts with a man who many called larger than life – Don Morse. Morse, who passed away in December 2011, founded many companies under the Morse umbrella, starting out with an electrical business in the late 1960s, which was founded by his father in 1944. By the time he passed the business to his wife and children last year, The Morse Group covered a wide array of construction facets, from electrical systems with Morse Electric Inc. to Eco-Energy LLC, which provides sustainable resources and ideas. The group also includes ASA, a hardware and software systems integrator capable of providing entire turnkey project solutions and The Rockwell Group, which provides industrial drywall solutions.
