About

A NAME YOU CAN TRUST

Taylor Electric Company was founded in 1922 by Sam Taylor, with his son Rufus Taylor joining the company in 1958 and later assuming the role of president. Throughout our history, we have been honored to provide services for many types of projects. Initially, we focused on smaller and mid-size jobs in the commercial and industrial sectors. Our many early successes positioned us over the years to bid on larger projects, including internationally recognized architectural landmarks. Now we are focused increasingly on vertical commercial and residential/hospitality projects, along with facilities maintenance of large-scale venues with complex electrical components.

Sam Taylor believed in himself and the people he hired and trained. He also believed that a man’s word was his bond and that it was not even necessary to sign a contract to do electrical work. It was he who first associated the words “A Name You Can Trust” to Taylor Electric Company.

Rufus Taylor carried on his father’s tradition of trust, escalated the company’s growth, and began contracting with major companies to provide electrical services for new construction and the rehabilitation of multi-unit residential and special-use facilities.

TODAY’S LEADERSHIP TEAM

Leading the current expansion of Taylor Electric Company is the fourth generation of Taylor family members. Their strong work ethic and commitment to the company’s ongoing success carries on the family’s reputation for integrity and innovation.

FAMILY CULTURE

Our strong performance record has supported our company’s longevity. We continue to thrive as a family-owned and operated union contractor. While sustaining our many longterm relationships—developed by generations of past and current Taylor employees—we are rapidly expanding our business to a wider base of customers. Ultimately, by meeting the industry’s highest quality standards, Taylor Electric Company will do its part to help every customer achieve maximum success.

Our family culture works. Our staff of electricians average five years with Taylor Electric. Our professional, administrative, and office staff average 10 years on the job, with many having 15 or 20 years with Taylor Electric.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Our company and individual Taylor Electric employees have made a commitment to community service. For example, we completed a “Go Pink” campaign to celebrate and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Employees enthusiastically donned pink hardhats all month long in October 2016, while our company made donations to the University of Chicago’s Cancer Research Center. We know that we’re better when we help make others better too.
