About Us

Lawson Electric’s foundation was laid with a dedication to customer service.

Since its establishment in 1925, Lawson Electric Company has grown to become one of Tennessee’s largest electrical contractors with almost 100 years of successful service. Lawson Electric manifests its commitment to quality through its dedicated employees. Over 500 construction personnel, field electricians, professional engineers, project managers, designers, industrial automation professionals, management, and clerical staff are committed to making your project successful.

Lawson Electric’s significant investments in state-of-the-art equipment and human resources allow Lawson to serve its customers with the tools and manpower required when special needs arise.

Approximately 50% of our annual sales is a result of negotiated design/build work. This is accomplished through long standing relationships with leading general contractors and Lawson Electric’s commercial and industrial customer base. The remaining sales are acquired through the competitive bid market.
