When you look far off into the distance, your imagination begins to rev up. It’s not exactly the yellow brick road; but then it is a positive expectation of great things. Shaw Electric serves commercial customers who bank on the future. They crunch the numbers and plot financial trajectories for commercial electrical work. Nothing left to chance is the Golden Rule in commercial electrical contracting. So if you have a track record of performance for that kind of client, you want to make sure like-minded people know it. Sure, some say they’re looking for the cheapest electrical contractor in Davenport, but we know what they mean is someone who can maintain quality and watch the budget on the same quote.

Shaw Electric excels in any commercial application from office buildings to warehouses to grocery stores from the ground up. Design build, engineering can be done in house. Whatever your vision, Shaw guarantees the work from the main distribution to the last outlet. We simply want to be your commercial electrical contractor.

High/medium/low voltage system, distribution, trenching and emergency power systems are in our wheelhouse. Fire alarm systems as well as wired networks are closer than you think, when you see them through the eyes of Shaw Electric. Because we’re not looking down the yellow brick road. We’re looking into the very real future.
