About Us

Engelman Electric-Engelman Electric-0015

Engelman Electric, Inc. is a diverse, full service electrical contracting company, serving your agricultural, horticultural, residential, commercial, and industrial needs in the Willamette Valley since 1967.


We offer a wide array of services from new construction, remodel work, troubleshooting, underground fault locating, and ladder truck services.


We believe no job is too small and we can fulfill most of your electrical needs.


We are a small company of 11 employees in which three hold electrical supervisor licenses.  Most have been employed with the company for 20 years or longer.


We are trade allies with the Oregon Energy Trust for small industrial and lighting efficiency rebate programs and a member of the Independent Electrical Contractors Association and National Federation of Independent Business.


Mr. William “Bill” Engelman founded Engelman Electric in 1967.


While performing all the work himself, Bill started out as the sole proprietor doing mainly agricultural and residential wiring. With the ever increasing demand of new construction Bill was able to hire another electrician after about a year and was instrumental in the core beliefs that still hold today.

Experiencing the need for qualified help and better training for future electricians, in 1978 Bill was instrumental in establishing the Independent Electrical Contractors of Oregon Association and the apprenticeship program ( that today continues to educate future electricians and is the sole voice for open merit shop contractors.



In 1993, three existing employees, Daniel Dummer, Mark Holum and Kristina Nichols purchased the business from Bill. In 1995, Ron Thunderbird became the fourth owner. The company has remained family owned since Bill’s retirement in 1998 and is still an active member of IECO.


Engelman Electric gradually grew to 11 employees and has a strong commitment to remain a small shop dedicated to our client’s electrical needs.


Our three electrical supervisors Dan, Mark, and Ron, were all trained under the direct supervision of Mr. Bill Engelman. Bill’s dedication to the electrical trade and pride in quality of work has been instilled in us and continues today. We at Engelman Electric always stand behind our work. No job is too small and we are ready to help you with all your electrical needs.
