About Us

Quality Electric of the Coastal Carolinas, Inc. is the reliable electrical contractor that will be here today… and tomorrow. For 35 years we’ve been locally owned and operated with headquarters in the Charleston, South Carolina region and offices in Columbia, Myrtle Beach, Bluffton/Hilton Head and Greenville.

The company was originally founded in the 1950s by Heywood Jacobs as Quality Plumbing, an electrical and plumbing contractor. His daughter, Jennifer Sanders, worked for him and in 1979, she and Charlie Sanders transitioned the company to Quality Electric.

In 2008, Charlie and Jennifer’s son, Chad Sanders took the reigns as president. Chad says, “I grew up in this company. I can remember going to the Quality Plumbing shop and riding my big wheel. I chased all the trucks up and down the driveway. As I got older, I went on service calls with my dad and in middle and high school, I worked on a crew when I wasn’t playing baseball or football.”

In the past 10 years, the family business has grown exponentially – both in geography and size. Quality Electric has increased its focus on commercial projects and in 2013, the low voltage and security division was transitioned to its own company – QEI Security & Technology.

But, we haven’t forgotten our roots. We still hold Level 5 Unlimited Commercial Electrical Licenses in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee and our electricians and service technicians have an average tenure with the company of 8 years. They are supported by our office staff, which has an average tenure of 12 years.

“It was an honor to step into the business my dad and granddad created, and be given the opportunity to take it to the next level. And that’s what we’re doing.”
