Everyone on our staff is a seasoned professional with a sincere pride in doing the job right the first time. Our Service Electricians arrive on the job uniformed and in a fully stocked service van with the expertise to provide superior service. We employ only the best electricians who are background checked and possess excellent people skills, as well as experienced electrical skills. We offer an employee benefits package second to none which allow us to attract and maintain the finest electricians the area has to offer.
We maintain a fully stocked warehouse complete with delivery personnel to further service our customers’ needs. If our electricians are on a job and they need something which is not stocked on their service vans we can quickly deliver the parts to them without interrupting their work, thereby helping the electrician to complete his task with less expense to the customer caused by return trips and/or job delays. Call us today and experience the difference, and see what it is like to plug into superior service!
