Established in 1986. Eugene Difranco (Erkie) my grandfather came from Italy many years ago and became a tradesman while residing in Cleveland, Ohio. My father worked for him also as a tradesman until 1986. He then moved to California and started a company in Palm Springs which I, Dane Feldman, came to work for. When my grandfather passed away we chose to start another company using him as a namesake. Now the Coachella Valley has an Erkies Electrical Heating and Air.
