35 Years in Business

November 16, 2020

This month at Helix Electric we are humbled and honored to be celebrating 35 years in business. Our founder, Gary Shekhter, immigrated from the former Soviet Union with a dream and a strong desire to succeed. This dedication to success fueled the opening of Helix in 1985 and has continued to shape our company culture, growing it into a place where all employees are empowered to own their growth.

Over the past 35 years, our company and Helix family has grown, making us one of the largest electrical contractors in the United States. We are proud to serve the community and provide employment for over 2,000 people in 9 different locations, spanning coast to coast from Hawaii to Washington, D.C. Our talented employees are at the heart of our success.

When you are part of Helix Electric, you are part of a community. We work hard as a team and win as a team. At every office and on every job-site, we strive to do better than ‘good enough.’ Every day we come to our jobs with passion, ambition, and reliability. This unique culture started in 1985 and continues to fuel our interactions with our employees, trusted trade partners, and loyal clients. We are fortunate to work with the best and brightest in the industry. Our partnerships with vendors, subcontractors, and clients have become long-lasting and trusted friendships.

Our mission to Empower People and Power Projects drives everything we do. We are a national company with a proud history of excellence. We send our sincere thanks to all who have grown with us and supported us over the years. We are eternally grateful and feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such a diverse group of leaders and innovators.

35 years is an incredible accomplishment and we look forward to raising industry standards with our dedication to great performance.
