Moving Forward

What we do is important, but how we do it is what makes us different. Our values of People, Integrity, Excellence, Innovation and Safety are reflected in how we treat one another, interact with customers, deliver services and approach problems. These core beliefs influence and guide how we do business—and we don’t expect that to change any time soon.

Superheroes in Safety VestsSafety Skills

At CEI, safety is not a behavior, but a state of mind. Our iterative approach, management commitment, engagement of employees, use of technology, formal training and innovative focus has earned CEI industry-wide safety recognition. But don’t just take our word for it. 

According to Safety Manager Damian Davila, “I came from another electrical company that places safety second…It was not something I was proud of and I made the decision to join [the] Cupertino family…When I was an ‘outsider’ looking in, that’s all you would hear: how well Cupertino treated all levels of their employees, regardless of employment status and how they would place safety first…our Cupertino Safety Culture is strong.”

Philanthropy A Culture of Giving Back

We believe that building great communities is just as important as building great projects.  

Since 1954, Cupertino Electric has promoted acts of kindness, volunteerism and service in the communities where our employees live and work. With hundreds of thousands of dollars, goods and services donated each year—and countless employee volunteer hours logged—we believe that our impact on the community is as important as the impact we have on customers via our projects.
