Cortes Electric Inc
We bring Power to the People!
Family Owned and Operated Since 2004
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
Jose Cortes, the founder of Cortes Electric Inc., began his career in 1986 as an Aviation Electrician for the Navy. Following the Navy, he worked as an electrician earning his Master’s Electrician license in 2002.
THE 2 BECOME 1 AND THEN 16
Jose and Penny, married in 1998, are proud parents of a whopping 14 children ranging from 21 down to 3. So yes, we know what makes that happen, and yes, there is not a dull moment at our house. We take the Bible literally, and we are blessed coming in and blessed going out!
THE STORY CONTINUES
While our family grew, Cortes Electric, established in 2004, started with one man in a truck who had the vision to help family and friends with their electrical needs while providing for his growing family. This vision has expanded to creating opportunities for others in the Jacksonville area to work together to solve electrical problems and bring our client’s dreams to light. We aspire to develop leaders in our community by hiring quality individuals who desire to learn and grow with our company.
WHAT WE DO
As a minority-owned Jacksonville-based Electrical Contracting Company holding JSEB & ACDBE certifications. We specialize in both Commercial and Residential Electrical contracting and service work. We are widely acknowledged for our honesty and integrity; we complete projects on schedule and within budget. Cortes Electric is the preferred company for Contractors, Businesses, HomeOwners, Federal Agencies, and Realtors.
Our extensive knowledge of the national electric code and the ability to work well with the General Contractor’s schedules make projects run smoothly even in high-pressure design-build situations.
