About CEI

A different kind of contractor.

Our customers often describe working with CEI as a true partnership. Yes, we’re skilled and efficient. Yes, we do great work at fair prices. And yes, we know every way possible around the proverbial fuse box. But, we also understand the value of honesty, partnership and a hearty handshake.  This spirit has been driven by our founders from the very moment we opened our doors in 1954.

Throughout our history, we have put people first, in every sense.  This applies as much to our own team as it does to our customer relationships.  The results are enduring relationships that go beyond project lists, and a level of trust that few can maintain.
