GREATER WEST PLAINS AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE BUSINESS OF THE WEEK

Mead Electrical Services

The crew keeps busy at Mead Electrical Services at 1143 Allen St., across from West Plains Elementary School.

The company, owned by Jerry Mead and his brother Shawn, started doing business in 2011, and offers electrical contracting services including installation, design and maintenance for residential, business and industrial customers.

The Mead brothers already had about 50 years of combined experience as electricians when they decided it was time to open up a business and build a customer base of their own.

“We’re very fortunate,” said Mead. He expressed deep appreciation for the company’s customers who keep the brothers and their three employees, all electricians, working on a variety of projects.

“We take pride in what we do,” said Mead.

Mead Electrical does not have a website or social media presence. As a result, customer satisfaction and word of mouth drive the company’s business.

In addition to maintaining a strong relationship with customers, Mead said, the company is proud to work with other electrical contractors in the area, sharing resources, skills and support in ongoing projects.

The shop’s business hours are “usually” from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, said Mead, noting hours can be variable based on projects underway.
