We are sorry to hear of the passing of our longtime CEO Joseph Trigg, the grandson of Potter Electric founder, Charles Edward Potter. Trigg passed away Saturday, December 3, 2022, at the age of 87. Trigg contributed to many areas within Potter, including a variety of roles in sales, operations, and manufacturing management over the course of his 40-year tenure. Trigg led us to the 100th anniversary of Potter’s founding in 1998 before taking a well-earned retirement. Trigg’s contributions to the company, and the culture within, will not be forgotten.
