Company History

Briggs-Old-Service-CarAfter World War II ended and America and her allies emerged victorious over European and Asian forces, the U.S. economy began an unprecedented growth surge fueled by entrepreneurs from around the country. Among them was S. E. Briggs, founder of S.E. Briggs & Sons in 1946. Conceived in the garage of Briggs’ home in Newport Beach, the electrical contracting concern would go on to become Briggs Electric Inc. by the early 1970s, when the elder Briggs sold the company to his son Bob Briggs and Tom Perry. In 1996, Tom Perry took over ownership of the company from Bob Briggs and in 1997 opened an office in Carson City, Nevada. Since then, Briggs Electric has continued to grow into a leading force in the electrical industry in both markets.

Founded on the principle of “Deliver excellence, and clients will keep coming back,” Briggs Electric has emerged as a business-in-progress that is one of the industry’s most enduring corporate citizens. Servicing the commercial and industrial building markets, Briggs Electric is a full-service electrical contractor whose services include design, budget, systems integration, power distribution, installation, lighting, telecommunications, security, fire alarm, audio visual, and complete electrical system services for both new and remodel applications. Together with its Carson City, Nevada-based office that serves Northern California and Nevada, the full-service electrical contractor caters primarily to the West Coast region, with the majority of its clients in Southern California, Northern Nevada, and Northern California.

Sensitive to current economic conditions and extremely competitive, the electrical industry has seen many companies come and go. However, Briggs Electric maintains a steady customer base and consistent revenue stream due to its quality service, a company hallmark. Briggs Electric’s reputation is cemented by valued-added service features, including fast-track design programs that ensure the shortest possible construction time, and a value-engineering process that provides the most versatile electrical systems at a competitive price.
