Our foremen, supervisors and managers have years of in-field experience that they utilize to efficiently manage every project. Problems, hold-ups and scheduling issues are minimized through the managed team approach that we use.

In 1981, our founder, Edward Mattox, used his training and expertise as a field electrician to strike out on his own, and Inland Electric began with just a few trucks and four employees. In the last decade, we have acquired three major electrical contractors and have become the contractor of choice for a majority of the residential builders in the Midwest. We now are proud to boast over 500 union electricians in the field and 40 support professionals providing support, design and value engineering services.

This once small company has grown to become one of Northern Illinois/Chicagoland's leading union electrical contractors where we are a leader in vertical residential (mid-rise, high-rise and quasi-commercial) as well as commercial, hotel/motel, retail and senior living.

Inland Electric is the choice of five of Metro Chicago's six biggest residential builders, firms such as Cambridge Homes, Centex, Lennar, Pulte Homes, and Town and Country, and has plans to expand into metropolitan areas.

Our past projects include corporate facilities, retail and commercial offices, corporate office suites, medical facilities and parking facilities. In short, from high-rise condominium developments to storefronts, Inland Electric is able to handle projects of all sizes.

Mr. Edward Mattox, president and owner of Inland Electric

One factor Edward Mattox attributes to Inland Electric's success is the philosophy he's always had towards customers.

"We try to be a true partner with our customers by providing value engineering and developing long-term relationships to the benefit of both."

The goal of partnering is to be as competitive as possible, and the company emphasizes using the best and most advanced technology as a tool for achieving that goal.
