It’s a new year and things are moving along at a very fast pace here at Suburban Electric. 2019 was a very good year for the company. We grew at the fastest rate ever. Early last year we purchased an 11,000 square foot building in Manteo and geared up for some very large contracts. The new building has provided us with the ability to serve our growing list of customers, both residential and commercial, faster and take on much larger jobs. We have been working weekends and nights improving the building and our infrastructure. We have added lots of new equipment and inventory to be able to complete jobs quicker and deliver quality service. This helped us win “Best of the Beach” again for 2019 just as we did in 2017.
The Generac part of our business had a huge year. We are now a Generac Elite Dealer having installed a large number of generators. We have dedicated a trailer and additional trucks just to meet the demand. We are doing larger and more powerful generators throughout the area as people get ready for another stormy season.
The Commercial end of the business grew extremely large. Suburban Electric is a trusted commercial electrical provider so the work keeps coming in quickly. We finished the new Buxton Fire Station work last fall as well as a huge lighting and dock job for ECU (Eastern Carolina University) Coastal Studies Institute. We have been working on two very large contracts since December for KOA (Campgrounds of America). The first is in Waves, NC. We are completely rebuilding the old electrical system for the RV and camping sites with almost 200 pedestals, all new underground conduit and wire, new service boxes and cabinets. During the same time, we were contracted to do the same work at the new Hampton site in Coinjock, NC. That job is even bigger is a brand new, ground up, build.
We’ve added new equipment specifically for that job including buying a Bobcat T-190 with a trencher to keep things moving quickly. These jobs have added an additional 4 people to our staff and we will be hiring even more soon. We have 3 more large contracts we need qualified personnel for, so if you have the skills give us a call.
The Residential division is also doing very well. We have our team wiring entire sets of new homes and remodels as customers are preparing for the up and coming rental season. We now have an additional 2 service trucks we just added to the fleet to keep up with demand. We have been doing everything from small simple outlet jobs up to complete meter bases and disconnects and everything in between. Need our help, give us a call, we would be happy to help you out.
2019 was fantastic and 2020 is looking even better. We would like to thank our customers for the opportunity to serve them. We believe our people are some of the most qualified and dedicated on the Outer Banks and we look forward to serving you. If you have any questions or need our services, we would love to hear from you. The office number is 252-475-1372 or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, we will bring “More Power To You”
