Excellence Alliance, Inc., Cincinnati, a membership organization that provides independent contractors with comprehensive business management tools and a network of industry resources, recently acquired the National Telecom Alliance (NTA)—the country’s first alliance of privately held telecommunications and electrical contractors.

With more than 250 member locations in its nationwide network of residential and commercial/mechanical contractors, Excellence Alliance announced late last year that it would establish new alliance territories for plumbing, electrical, and refrigeration contractors and created the Contractors Advisory Board to service these areas. The integration of NTA and its members into EAI will serve as the foundation for the new EAI electrical and telecom alliance.
