Ken Shelly
Safety Manager


What is the most unusual or interesting project you’ve worked on at Absolute? 
It has to be the HP flood recovery project. I worked at that location for 28 years, and to help them get back into production was a great accomplishment. It makes me feel good when I can help our client accomplish their goals by going above and beyond their expectations.

As a locally-based, independently owned, third-party testing organization, Absolute answers only to their clients. As a result, we have coined the term Powerfully Independent! In a sentence or two, tell us what Powerfully Independent means to you and how this has impacted your experience working at Absolute.
Small enough that we are not hampered by all the rules and regulations of a large corporate company whose main focus is on its shareholders. 

Large enough that we can handle any size job the customer’s throws at us.  

Prideful enough that our focus is to always exceed our customer’s expectations. 

Powerful enough that we have built a reputation that is far and above all of our competitors.

What’s the most unusual thing in your desk/company vehicle/tool bag?
A Basin Wrench – most electricians don’t carry a basin wrench in their tool bag.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like to hunt and spend time with my family.     

Who inspires you?
My wife.
