Our family company was established in 1995 by Phil Reardon Sr. and his wife, Cheri.  In 1985, Phil graduated from Bullard Havens Technical High School and without hesitation he began his electrical career.  Before pursuing his true goal of establishing his own electrical company, Phil worked as a heavy industrial/commercial electrician specializing in motor controls and production machine wiring (PLC) for both contractors and corporations.  Early on in his career, he joined the IBEW Union and his knowledge of the trade did not go unseen and he was promoted to foreman.  As time passed, he soon earned the title of General Foreman.  During this time, he honed his skills of leadership and project management.  Some of his most notable projects include Fairfield University, Fairfield Prep High School, Heim Bearings and the Milford Power Plant.

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.
