About Renfro Electric
Renfro Electric was founded by Tom Renfro in 1976 based on the idea of creating a team-oriented and employee friendly corporate culture. It was that vision combined with consistent, competitive performance that led to our continued growth of the last 30 years.
Renfro Electric completed its first contract job in excess of $250,000 in 1996. Many more industrial and commercial projects followed that job. As the company continued to prove itself to customers in the field it also continued to improve its estimating and management practices in the office.
By the year 2000 the company had a full time Office Manager and two full time Project Managers. In 2006 Tom incorporated the company and it became Renfro Electric, Inc. Since then, Renfro Electric has completed its first project with a contract amount in excess of one million dollars and has continued to expand its range of work to more complex industrial and commercial jobs. During this time an office was opened in Tulsa, OK to better serve that market as well.
Today, Renfro Electric is one of the most successful electrical open shops in Northeastern Oklahoma. With offices in Muskogee and Tulsa, it has expanded to a full spectrum electrical subcontracting company serving all of Oklahoma.
Renfro Electric management and the more than 25 field employees continually look for ways to improve productivity of installation and quality of electrical systems. "How can we deliver better value?" "How can we shorten the schedule?" "How can we improve our service?" are part of a constant flow of new methods and ideas intended to bring the benefits of our expertise to every client.
