About GL West
GL West Electric opened its doors in 2001 under the leadership of Gary West. Gary sought out to create a reliable contracting firm that was solely based on the principles of total quality management. The company started with only three men; installing commercial electrical projects using the fundamentals that Gary first implemented. It did not take long for owners and general contractors to take notice of this quality driven management style, which yielded successful, cost effective, & timely projects. The results have led to a loyal customer following.
Over the last two decades, GL West has grown significantly, due primarily to the excellent quality given from our office and field operations. We are now effectively competing in all sectors of the industry including healthcare, industrial, commercial, and educational. Due to our proactive management practices we are making an impressive and lasting mark on every customer we do business with.
Through our ZERO initiative, we are not willing to compromise on the safety of our employees or the quality of product we leave the end user. Being the only trade that is first to come and last to leave, we strive to shine through all aspects of the construction process. We continually dedicate ourselves and our resources to provide the same level of safety, quality, service, and competitiveness that has become the benchmark of GL West Electric.
