Commercial & Industrial Sectors

The Commercial & Industrial sectors require the same expertise in high-voltage transmission, distribution, underground, and substation construction and maintenance needed by utility companies. These sectors require attention at a large scale at times, due to the size of their buildings and factories. We ensure that reliable electrical infrastructure is constructed to meet all of their commercial and industrial needs.

For all commercial & industrial maintenance needs, our foremen respond with speedy, personable service and the appropriate solutions. Quickly diagnosing electrical problems and creating solutions enables us to build trustworthy relationships in our community. Our commercial & industrial customers count on us not only to provide electrical maintenance, but to do it with speed, accuracy, and approachability because their business depends on it.

Taylor Electric
We had a major problem with the mill being down and called Taylor Electric on very short notice. They sent a supervisor on site to evaluate the problem and had a crew on site within a couple of hours. The crew had the mill back up and running in about six hours. Also, they are very safety-aware on the job. I would recommend using them on any job that is needed to be done in the future.

Professional Engineers

We work with multiple private engineers who finance our work in design and build utility construction, which includes distribution lines, underground distribution lines, transmission lines, and substations. They also invest in our services for switching and for telecommunications.

These PE-backed projects require more creativity due to the upfront “design” stage that informs our typical building and maintenance stages. We use our industry experience of over 20 years to provide efficient and effective designs that improve quality of life for the communities in which we operate.

Government Contractors

Taylor Electric has performed high-voltage construction and maintenance on federal and military installations across the United States. Our entire workforce goes through special background checks to have clearance in government and military facilities.
We also employee a full support staff experienced in government contracts and record-keeping. For example, they are knowledgeable of the Davis-Bacon Wage Act and certified payrolls. Our ability to work on government properties make us a unique and valuable choice for any electrical contract work needed.

US Government
Arnold Air Force base in Tennessee had a critical power outage at our facility, which created an emergency requirement to run high voltage overhead power lines to a major network facility to supply power as needed. This work had a tight deadline and had to be completed within five days. Several vendors were contacted for this effort, but it was Taylor Electric who offered the best price and also promised to meet the demanding time schedule.

Taylor Electric did an outstanding job, provided excellent service, performed all work as specified, and did not only complete the work on-time, but finished the project two days ahead of schedule along with all testing requirements.

Taylor Electric has a very knowledgeable and professional crew of high-performance craftsmen with an eager “can do” attitude. I was extremely satisfied with the services that were provided. I will definitely be contacting Taylor Electric for future projects, and I would highly recommend Taylor Electric to others.
