A Leader in….

Beach 1 Electric Ltd. has been the Georgian Triangle’s go-to commercial electric, automation and energy savings contractor since 2004. We have grown since then, and for that we thank our many longstanding customers. We have since added a premium line of network cameras as well as industry-leading luminescent lighting.

 

You’re in Charge

We believe that our customers should be able to decide how they want things done. Instead of saying “this is how we’re going to do it,” we present options. You choose the one you like best.

Along the same lines, we don’t believe in locking customers in. That’s why Beach 1 Electric uses reliable, standard components in our builds, creates user manuals where required, and lets administrators know all systems passwords. You own the equipment, so you should be able to decide who works on it.

 

High Capability

When you search for ‘Systems Integrators’, you get Siemens. That’s a huge company. They specialize in huge projects at huge cost. Beach 1 Electric is a true systems integrator and process automation expert. We do systems integration work for local food production facilities, a distillery, and a number of municipal water/wastewater treatment facilities. We have talented people who know what they’re doing and we’re comfortable at the intersection of automation and industrial electrics. We can gather information from industrial machines and processes and then push that data to anywhere or anyone in the company.

best practices

Beach 1 technicians are highly competent in everything that we do, from commercial electric to network camera, generator and network cabling installations, to SCADA programming. We also follow standardized ways of architecting, programming and building systems according to best practices. We want to be sure that all Beach 1 technicians follow best practices, so we apprentice young electricians and train them up ourselves to do things our way.

Beach 1 Electric is constantly on the lookout for new technologies. We also regularly train our staff on current and upcoming technologies. We are always ready to provide you with the best solutions of today.

 

Insured

Last but not least, we are fully insured. If you have any questions, we welcome them. Please contact us.
