Who We Are

WCI utilizes a skilled and energetic team to man every job. The employees at WCI are acknowledged as some of the best and most knowledgeable in the electrostatic precipitator and particle agglomerator industry. This continually saves our clients both money and time.

WCI offers one of the lowest EMRs (experience modification rating) in the air quality control industry. On staff MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration) authorized instructors ensure that all WCI employees are trained to the most current MSHA standards.The supervisors at WCI are required to have daily time sheets signed by the plant designated contact. This eliminates guesswork pertaining to the number of man hours worked each day.

Not only does WCI maintain the main office in Tennessee they also have supervisors and equipment stationed in Arkansas. This allows Whitehead Construction, Inc. to have fast response times and lower costs.
