Edwardsville-based Donco, LLC to become Utilitra in 2020

Edwardsville-based Donco, LLC has publicly unveiled its new name, “Utilitra.”

Chairwoman and CEO Candice Fowler said the name officially launches in 2020. Fowler said as the company has grown, she realized the old name no longer fits.

“Our success and growth had forced us to step back and evaluate a name that truly embodies our company goals,” said Fowler. ‘Utili’ rooted in Italian and ‘Utila’ in Latin together means ‘useful tools.’  Utilitra emphasizes the company’s quest to always provide the highest, ultra-service, smart technology and efficient utility solutions. Regardless of name, the company strives to be a premier partner and leader, while maintaining their values of family, integrity and collaboration.”

Fowler (shown here holding sign) attributes the company’s growth and success to its dedicated employees.

“Over the years, we’ve diversified our services to become leaders in the utility and technology industries.,” said Fowler. “We now have over 300 employees in five divisions and many of those employees have been with the company for years. That level of commitment helped us become one of the Top 10 Fast 50 companies with an extraordinary 163 percent revenue growth from 2016-2018.”

Donco consists of five divisions: gas construction services ( and metering services (, information technology (Fowler Technology Services), electrical design (Utility Design Services), and management services (Fowler Management Services).
