Capital Electric Construction Co., Inc.
60 Years of Complete Electrical Contracting
Capital Electric Construction Company, Inc. was founded in 1957 by Robert Doran Jr., his wife, L.B. Doran, and their son, Robert E. Doran III. The purpose was to create a company that could provide complete, professional, electrical construction service throughout the Midwest. In the initial years, the company concentrated on electrical construction services for commercial and industrial buildings including maintenance and repair.
Expanding, in 1967, Capital Electric’s general electrical construction service, another division, Capital Electric Line Builders, Inc., was formed to serve the utility industries on contracts such as substations, distribution systems, underground installations and high voltage transmission lines.
Since its origination, Capital Electric has maintained a strategic focus on steady, orderly growth, thus becoming one of the largest electrical contractors in the United States. Capital Electric prides itself on building a professional reputation for providing customers the full range of commercial, industrial, institutional, data communication, maintenance, service, design/build, and underground quality installation services. From our engineering design/build department to our telecommunication division, Capital Electric is a single source provider for virtually every type of project, regardless of size, scope or industry.
