The DDC Advantage

The DDC advantage lies in our three core strengths:

  • Vast industry expertise
  • Technology tools and resources
  • A full-service focus


From concept to deployment to redesign and planning future design, DDC delivers. At DDC, we have unique one-stop shop capabilities and resources—with the survey equipment to start the project, the leading-edge Micro Station technology to design it, and the project management to bring your vision to fruition. And we do this all in a timeframe that meets (and often exceeds) the demands of your schedule.


DDC Defined

In 1998, Mitchell Ellis created DDC to address the need for qualified design consultants in the electric utility industry.  Mitch had a firm foundation for development of this company: expertise dating back to his high school years, when he learned the industry from the ground up as a power lineman. After earning an electrical engineering degree at Ohio University, Mitch honed his design skills at power companies including Detroit Edison and Florida Power and Light—one of DDC’s earliest customers.


Today, DDC is an expanding company with a nationwide service reach from Arizona to Florida. DDC’s top-notch staff is comprised of seasoned personnel/technicians with a combined 80 years of industry experience. These employees exemplify the company’s core values—centered on commitment to stellar service.


DDC success and growth are the result of our commitment to customer service, quality of design, integrity, and each team member's continuous personal and professional improvement within the framework of our core values. These DDC values center on:


  • Personal integrity, honesty, and professional ethics
  • Exceptional client service
  • A culture of lifelong learning and renewal
  • Teamwork and execution
  • A strong work ethic combined with a spirit of fun and achievement
  • Meaningful challenges for career growth
  • An environment of trust and collaboration
  • Embracing advanced technology solutions
  • An understanding that people are the source of our success

DDC doesn’t promise what we can’t deliver with integrity and our signature focus on service excellence.
