Wired For The Future

If there is such a thing as an “absolute” in contemporary business, it’s the fact that everything will change. No matter how well–equipped and experienced your company may be for today’s challenges and customer-driven performance, one eye must always be on the horizon.

Shaw Electric recognized the need to anticipate changes from day one in 1944. Our future-based orientation made us flexible, strong and acutely aware that one wave of change would soon be followed by another – and another – infinitely.

Here’s the thing. As time passes, even the rate of change has increased. A leader doesn’t adjust grudgingly to new technologies and services; they embrace them. That’s Shaw Electric, now with 6 plus decades of service that is grounded in values and focused on value that benefits those we serve. On every level, we are wired for the future.

Note: For local electrical work, you’ll still find us under Yellow Pages – Electrical Contractors. Also on the important on line consumer-positive Angie’s List. We’re flattered when customers call Shaw Electric the best electrical contractor in the Quad Cities and/or the best electrical contractor in Davenport. We don’t even mind the title of the Cheapest Electrical contractor as long as it’s clear that we’re talking about price and not quality.
