HOUSTON, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Quanta Services, Inc. (NYSE: PWR) announced that Jim O'Neil, president and chief executive officer of Quanta Services, will ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange today at 4 p.m. EST, marking the company's 15th anniversary of trading on the prestigious securities exchange.
"Quanta was founded 15 years ago with the belief that our nation's energy infrastructure needed significant upgrade, expansion and replacement and that a national specialty contractor would be essential to meeting that need. Quanta has grown forty-fold since its initial public offering and listing on the New York Stock Exchange in February 1998, becoming one of North America's leading electric power, natural gas and pipeline infrastructure services providers," said Jim O'Neil, president and chief executive officer of Quanta Services. "We expect demand for our services to remain strong as utilities invest in electric power infrastructure to improve reliability and North American pipeline infrastructure is developed to harvest resources in unconventional shale and Canadian oil sand regions. We believe Quanta's future is bright and we look forward to many more years of success."
Members of Quanta's management and board of directors will join O'Neil as he rings the closing bell at 4 p.m. Eastern.
