In 1995, Phil and Cheri decided it was time to take a step away from being the employee and start their own company. They were nervous taking this step, but they were confident that Phil’s extensive knowledge of the trade and Cheri’s office administrative experience was the foundation they needed to start this adventure. They knew that this; combined with their hard work, dedication and joint effort was what they needed to be a successful electrical contractor. Little did they know at the time, what started out of their house as a small, family-owned and operated electrical business, would expand to serve the Greater Fairfield and New Haven Counties with a fleet of trucks, a shop in Bridgeport and an office in Trumbull.
As the business expanded, so did the responsibilities and Cheri became the primary owner by taking on all the office and decision-making responsibilities as the Office Director. This allowed Phil to concentrate more on the field work and less on the logistics of running the business.
Today, Elite Electrical Contractors L.L.C. of Trumbull, CT, is proud to have a team of qualified electricians, second-generation employees, an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and a strong return back to the IBEW as a union electrical contractor.
