How We Earned Our Reputation


At Carter Electric Company, industrial and commercial electrical work is our business – our only business. We have been doing industrial electrical construction, expansion, modification, maintenance, and critical emergency services for over 96 years, and because we are a third-generation, family-owned business, we –the owners–are on the job site and in the office to make sure everything is done right the first time, every time.

In our 96 years of business, we have accumulated the area’s broadest range of electrical expertise. So regardless of the nature of your business, we have the experience to provide immediate and comprehensive electrical services. Our areas of expertise include:

  • Power Generation
  • Chemicals
  • Printing and Publishing
  • Healthcare
  • Light and Heavy Manufacturing
  • Food Preparation and Packaging
  • Healthcare
  • Energy Management and Conservation
  • And more!

And our extended “family” of long-term company supervisors and highly skilled electricians ensure that you will always be able to depend on the highest quality work possible. If that is not the case, we would not still be here after 96 years, and we would not have earned the excellent reputation that we have.

A message to our customers

Every morning, when our crews report to work, they take with them
three generations of experience
three generations of reputation
three generations of commitment to service.

I view it as my responsibility to ensure that every employee knows I see my name, my father’s name, and my grandfather’s name on every component of every project.

Compromises are simply not an option. We didn’t build over 90 years of history – over 90 years of helping others accomplish their objectives – by compromising in any area. And we will not ever.

If we can be of service to you and your company – anywhere throughout the Southeast – please do not hesitate to call me personally. I would consider it an honor.

President/CEO of Carter Electric Company, Inc.
