The firm has offices both in the Kansas City metro area and Lorain, Ohio.

Laffoon has served as Governor for the Kansas City Chapter, and as the District 7 representative on NECA’s Political Leadership Council (PLC) and has personally contributed to the PLC for the last eight years. Additionally, Laffoon completed a two-year term as a management representative on NECA’s Council on Industrial Relations, where he played a key role in settling labor disputes from all corners of the electrical construction industry.
