Industrial Technical Services (ITS) Celebrates 40 Years in Business

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021

Spencer Tyson founded his company on June 22nd, 1981 as an industrial electrical and instrumentation & controls contractor.  In 1994, Spencer saw a need for a contractor that could provide electrical, mechanical, and civil construction in-house.  ITS expanded their services and have been successfully completing turn-key industrial projects for area clients.  As we have grown, so has our customer base, to include pulp/paper, chemical, petroleum, manufacturing, food & beverage, bulk-handling, and distribution companies.  As a testament to the company’s growth, our founding team of six (6) has grown to employ an average of over 100 tradesmen and women.  ITS is a family-owned business and we pride ourselves in treating our employees like family and we know they are the reason for our success.  Many of our team members are long-term employees and some have been with the company for over 30 years.  We hope that is something that never changes.  

We recently asked our clients why they use ITS as their preferred full-service industrial contractor.  Here is what they told us:  

  1. Safety - Outstanding safety record
  2. Convenience - Multiple disciplines in one contractor
  3. Trained - apprentice and leadership training program
  4. Quality – exceed clients’ expectation of quality and timing 
  5. Flexible – work with client’s schedules  

Our history of success has allowed us to expand our operation to the Aiken, SC / Augusta, GA area and will be celebrating our grand opening on Wednesday, June 30th in Aiken, SC.  

ITS plans to observe its 40th anniversary over the next several months with several activities and events. Among them are:

  • A celebration with our team on Tuesday, June 29th at our home office located at 150 Telfair Road, Savannah.  At the celebration we will reflect on milestones achieved over the last 40 years and focus on our plans for another successful 40 years!  


  • A combined anniversary celebration and grand opening on Wednesday, June 30th at our newest office located at 4253 Whisky Road, Aiken, SC.  


  • We plan to thank our clients for their partnerships with a customer appreciation event.


  • Additionally, a commemorative logo has been designed to observe the company’s 40 years of excellence in industrial construction.  


“We are grateful to be part of a family business that has served the Savannah community for many years and we look forward to a bright future” Spencer Tyson said. “ITS built a reputation of excellence, is dedicated to employing local skilled and professional craftsmanship, building our future by expanding our mechanical and electrical apprenticeship programs by partnering with the Independent Electrical Contractors, the Construction Ready Program and Savannah Tech, and investing in our leaders through our partnership with Georgia Tech and the Georgia Manufactures Extension Program.  We are excited for the future and look forward to continuing our service Savannah and now Augusta industrial clients.”
