Clinton Electric Inc.
Clinton Electric, Inc. was founded in 1981 by Eugene (Gene) Clinton and his wife Barbara. Gene’s roots in the electrical construction industry began in 1963 working as an Apprentice Electrician in IBEW Local Union 702. After completing his four-year Apprenticeship Program, serving as a Journeyman Electrician, then as General Foreman and Superintendent of several large projects in southern Illinois, he was offered a partnership in a mechanical-electrical construction firm. After nine years in that partnership, Gene made the leap into his own business venture and the doors of Clinton Electric, Inc. were opened in May, 1981.
