    Since 1982, May Electric has been focusing its attention primarily on industrial automation, high and low voltage power distribution, instrumentation, computer-operated controls, and design/build of electrical systems.

    Our philosophy is to provide highly-trained and skilled craftsmen to install electrical systems , using quality materials, installed in a professional manner. We strive to complete the project within the customer's time frame, and to provide immediate service in an emergency.

    May Electric maintains resonable rates for our customers as well as standing behind the work we perform.

    May Electric employs an average of 25 electricians. We have had as many as 45 for large contract installations.

    We hire electricians with a mechanical aptitude, vocational training and on-the-job experience, a positive attitude, and a desire to learn and improve one's skills.

    We strive to pay our men the best wages possible for the skill and experience they attain, for it is the company's goal to keep its qualified and knowledgable personnel and have a minimum of employee turnover. We feel we have accomplished this in that we have employees that have been with us for over 10 years.
