Star Electric was founded in October of 1978.  Opened for business with two employee owners that had a dream of starting there own company.  In 1982 it became a family affair when owner Neal Pavletich's brother bought into the company to become a partner.  In 1989 Jerry Lucas left the business and it was just Neal and brother George.  George died in 1993 of a brain tumor and in 1998 Mark Pavletich (Neal's son) bought into the company.  Star Electric has survived the up's and downs of the construction industry since 1978 due to their broad spectrum of work.  We do many different types of electrical work, but we specialize in the following fields.  New construction residential, remodel additions and tear downs, residential or commercial service work.  Commercial TI's, main service panel upgrades or change outs and additions to existing homes or offices (ie flush cans, new 110v or 220v circuits, Cat-5 & TV wiring).
