About Us

Here at Volunteer Electrical Solutions we are a family owned and operated business. I started my electrical career in 1992 as a industrial electrician with Superior Industries International located in Johnson City, Tennessee. I worked as an industrial electrician there for over 15-years but in 2006 Superior Industries International decided to shut down operations and relocate those operations out of the country. I was fortunate enough to receive a job with CSX Transportation at that time. I’ve worked with CSX Transportation over the last 12-years but once again found myself on the receiving end of a company restructure. In October 2015 we were told that the Erwin Terminal would be shutting down operations and 370 hard working Tennesseans lost their jobs. I ended up having to move to West Virginia to continue work with CSX Transportation all the while longing for my family, my church and my community.

This is when I decided to start Volunteer Electrical Solutions LLC. I don’t like the feeling of getting settled into a lifestyle only to have the rug pulled out from under you because a multi million dollar corporation decides to relocate or restructure their operations. As I understand the business decisions made by these companies to restructure or relocate, the facts are it doesn’t make it any easier when it happens to you. Small business is the engine of our economy here in the United States. I want to be a part of that engine. My goal is to provide a quality service at a fair price for the citizens of Upper East Tennessee. Electricity is my passion and quality is my goal. I look forward to helping you with your electrical needs. Your home is our home here at Volunteer Electrical Solutions.
