FB Timberline in the Community

As part of the Forbes Bros. Group of Companies, FB Timberline is committed to its Community First model. We believe that people and communities affected by powerline construction activities should have the opportunity to benefit through employment, education, training, joint-venture, and subcontracting opportunities. 

FB Timberline is a strong advocate for volunteer work and community engagement. We will never hesitate to lend a hand where a hand is needed. We believe in establishing strong, mutually beneficial partnerships and creating success stories in the communities in which we live and work. Read on for some examples of how FB Timberline has contributed to our communities’ health and wellness.

Supporting Scholarships at Line School

FB Timberline employee Jonathan Hillis, a former student of the 16-week Electric Line Construction Technology program at Nash Community College (NCC), established a scholarship for apprentice lineman through the college. Hillis is now enjoying his burgeoning career as an apprentice lineman with FB Timberline. The scholarship was established to support deserving students preparing for a career in the utility industry. The Jonathan Hillis Line Technology Merit Award acknowledges NCC’s Electric Line Construction Technology students’ outstanding academic performance. Hillis recognizes the financial burden that students face, and his lifelong desire to help others ultimately inspired him to establish the scholarship.

“This job and this company have been more than I ever dreamed this career would be”

I did not know what to expect coming into a completely different career field at 34 years old, but this job and this company have been more than I ever dreamed this career would be. After just two years of being hired with FB Timberline, I have worked with some of the most genuine, honest, and hardworking men and women I have ever met—each more willing than the other to teach, preach and pass on knowledge to a young apprentice. I have made lifelong friendships, with some of them becoming more like brothers. I am incredibly thankful every day for the opportunity that FB Timberline has given me to live my dream!
