Who we are

A company firmly grounded

Company founder, M. L. Schmitt was the ultimate gentleman. He tended his garden in a suit and tie and took off his hat when speaking with a lady on the telephone. He knew that a good business is grounded in fairness, honesty, quality and a commitment to its workers. From founder to son to his grandsons, the Schmitt family has maintained a tradition of excellence in the field of electrical contracting. Nine decades after M. L. Schmitt began his company, his grandson, Tom Schmitt, runs M. L. Schmitt, Inc. Electrical Contractors & Engineers guided by his values.

Quality, integrity, electricity—still runs strong in the family.
