About Us


Our History

Founded in 1925, Maryland Electric Company was started on Maryland Street in Grosse Pointe Michigan as a small residential contractor. Growing slowly through the years, Maryland Electric gained a reputation for excellent service and quality workmanship.

In 1976 the company was purchased by Jerry and Ellen Dancey, continuing to provide the same quality residential services the company had been doing for the first 51 years. At the same time, building up a strong commercial customer base throughout the Midwest.

Moving from Clinton Township , Michigan to our current headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee in 2014, Maryland Electric Company has continued to grow while still maintaining the core family values set forth by the Dancey’s.

Maryland Electric has expanded its capabilities over the years to serve a wide range of customers on a variety of projects including commercial and retail construction, industrial facilities, data centers, universities, hospitals, military bases, and more.

Our areas of expertise extend beyond just construction. We have extensive experience in plant renovations and shut-down work, electrical scheduled maintenance, infrared testing and reporting, emergency repairs, as well as design/build engineering.

We’re proud that through the years the company has worked hard to preserve its founder’s philosophies while expanding the companies reach. Through our commitment, experience, training, dedication, and of course great teamwork, Maryland Electric Company will continue to provide quality electrical service to all its customers.

Ronald Reagan once said "Trust, but Verify."

We know that in order to trust a company to work on your projects you need to verify who we are and what we do.
