The History of Laser Electric | 1987 - Today


Laser Electric, Inc. is founded. We operated as a one man shop for nearly a year.


We earned our first significant project with Jackson & Blanc who we still maintain as one of our best customers.

1988 - 1999

From 88′ to 99′ we continued to operate from our home until we reached $1M in revenue in 1999.


In 2000 we moved into our first ‘real office,’ which was quite the monumental achievement for us celebrating just over a decade of hard work. At that time, in 2000, we had two (2) office staff and 10 technicians.

``Our goals as a company are to provide you with on time service, delivered in the most professional way possible, with the utmost regard for safety and integrity, and to meet or exceed your expectations on every project we do. Our desire is that you would want to do business with us because there is no other choice when you look for the best quality and service you expect everyday.``
