    We had a great time at CLP’s annual family appreciation day at Carowinds this summer.  It was a little warm, but we didn’t mind because the lines were shorter!  Carowinds is located in both NC and SC and boasts the world’s tallest and fasts giga coaster, the Fury 325.

    CLP Skywild Team Building Trip

    CLP Skywild Team Building Trip

    The CLP team took on Greensboro’s Skywild, a rooftop adventure ropes course.  It was a great team building experience, as the office team got to experience a little taste of the heights our field team deals with on a regular basis!  We could all agree, these courses were a lot more fun than being out in the field, but in some ways they just as challenging.  The best part was when one person completed a portion of a course, he or she would “coach” the other people and cheer them on as they made their way through it.  Definitely worth a try if you’re ever in the Greensboro area and looking for something fun to do!

    –Company head Jennifer A. Tierney applauds achievement and recognizes industry support

    (October 5, 2015)– Commercial Lightning Protection(CLP), which specializes in the design and installation of lightning protection and grounding systems along the East Coast, recently received certification as a Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) through the National Women Business Owners Corporation. To qualify, a business must be at least 51 percent owned and operated by a woman; a long-term process involving extensive documentation including an on-site visit.

    “The WBE designation is particularly important in the diversification of the lightning protection field, and recognizes the relevance and contributions of women as industry leaders, ” said CLP Chief Executive Officer Jennifer A. Tierney.

    “Our firm also recognizes and thanks the efforts of our clients to support a women-owned business and their ongoing commitment to foster diversity,” she added, noting that CLP is in good company. A recent survey showed North Carolina is among the top five fastest-growing states in the country regarding the number of women-owned firms.

    Under Tierney’s leadership, CLP has streamlined its hiring process, improved employee retention, and increased the percentage of female employees in its firm, which include its Greensboro headquarters and a Richmond, Virginia office.

    In addition, CLP received HUB (Historically Underutilized Business) certification in North Carolina, a designation providing business opportunities with the state and recognized by local procurement offices.
