Letter from the President

A business associate recently asked an MCE customer for their opinion of the company. By chance, those comments made their way to my desk, and I was pleased to read what they had to say.

“Motor City Electric Co. is a well-known, highly respected firm. Their performance in the field is exceptional. They have tremendous safety practices, exceptional manpower, and managerial resources. Their skilled project managers bring to the table years of experience, and unmatched execution.”

Needless to say, seeing such high praise made me feel very proud of the electrical work we are doing. We are fortunate to have a workforce that maintains the company safety culture and skilled labor execution our clients have come to expect. Many of our division managers have risen from within the company, some having been with us for more than 20 years. Because of our approach to skilled training, hands-on apprenticeships, and encouragement of continued education, we have project managers that are masters of their craft. Fortunately for us, this greatly enhances the value-added aspect of our total capabilities.

We continue to evolve as a company, always centering our focus on innovative practices and our safety culture. We adapt quickly to stay on the cutting edge of advanced technology as the industry grows and changes. Our integrated operations have grown to serve a wide spectrum of customers and their needs with everything from basic electrical wiring to comprehensive design/build construction management. Interwoven within this growth are the long-term relationships we build with each customer as we help them achieve success.

As a leader in our industry, we are dedicated to meeting the construction challenges of the future. We will keep growing our practice and capabilities and will maintain the reputation we have established in Detroit over the last 70 years.
