Our company is capable of remote and local dockside service, panelboard and switchgear manufacturing, engineering, and marine electrical parts sales. Our mission now is to maintain that proud position, and to continue to earn the respect of those who have come to depend on us here at home in South Florida, and in ports of call around the globe.
