American Electric Construction brings a strong mix of industry expertise to our region: industrial, commercial and large residential. We understand the technical demands in each category and we understand the big picture challenges to managing projects at every scale.

Our objective is to deliver a partnership that leads to peace of mind, no matter the challenge you bring us. Count on specialists in each category of construction, and more — count on a culture that promotes individual growth, team unity and relentless devotion to perfection. Our clients rely on us to tackle their project with an ownership mentality, as if success for the entire thing rests on our shoulders.

Hard Work

It comes easy when you love what you do. Our philosophy on the subject is simple: with each new project, the only thing we expect of our team is their finest work ever. We do what it takes, we put in the effort, we get it done.

Dependability

We appreciate what it means to run a business. That’s why we take an ownership mentality with every project. Whatever challenge you throw at us, we intend to tackle it as if the entire job depended on us.

Loyalty

Our expertise is electrical. But our commitment is people. We know relationships are the most important connections we make. And our success is a result of a servant’s heart: we take care of those we serve, both on the job and in our shop.

People First

It’s a simple concept: if you want to work for the best, work with the best.

We’ve been in the business long enough to understand that excellence on the job is a matter of culture. That’s why we keep our devotion to both clients and staff on equal footing.

When you take care of one, you take care of both. The results speak for themselves.

With a staff of more than 30 personnel and over 40 years’ combined experience in our leadership team, American Electric Construction has mastered more than the electric trade. We’ve mastered team building. We promote a healthy work/life balance and pride ourselves in a team of electricians that like working together, like learning together, and like pushing each other.

That’s a win for everyone. And it’s a reason some of the finest general contractors and developers keep calling us. We invite you to give us a ring, too.
