PrimeTech is owned by Brad’s and Marti Shoemaker. They met while employed for a large company back in the 1980’s.

Starting as a Line Tech and working up to General Manager, Brad decided to pursue his dream to start his own business in 1996.

He purchased a bucket truck to work in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. At the time their office was the family dining room.

Often a person or a company, is defined by what they do.

The Shoemakers wanted a name that told not only what the company did, but who they were. Thus was born “PrimeTech.

As Marti will tell you, “Prime is who we are. It means ‘best, premier, superior, chief, primary and crucial.’ Tech is what we do – we provide technical expertise to our clients.”


PrimeTech is a full service construction contractor for the Telecommunication and Utility Industries.
