The NEI Electric story starts with two local electric companies with deep roots in St. Paul and Western WI.

Claude and Jeanette Anderson started their electrical company, Claude M. Anderson Electric Co., Inc. in the early 1950s. Anderson Electric became a 1952 charter member of the St. Paul Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and incorporated in 1959. East 7th Street building, early 1900’s, pictured at right.

Building History

NEI Northern Electricians, Inc. was founded by Donald Eibs and Marv Roberts; Bob Rawlings became a partner in 1975 and then assumed business clients and valuable employees of both Sherman Electric and Halvorson Electric in the 1990s.

A Powerful Combination

In 2009 the three locations joined together as NEI Electric. NEI Electric has more than 100 years of combined electrical experience and is proud of the outstanding professional service provided in the past to loyal customers and pledges to continue this same quality service into the future.
