AECCI was originally formed in 1962 by Don Lanier as Auburn Electric, Inc. We started out doing primarily residential work. As time went on, we moved from residential work to commercial and industrial work and phased out our residential business. By the mid 1970’s, we were dominating this area as the largest open-shop electrical contractor around.
We continued to grow, and by the mid 1980’s we were doing app. $15 million volume per year. As the early 1990’s came, Don Lanier decided retirement was in his future, so Greg Lanier, his son, started running the company. In 1994, Auburn Electrical Construction Company, Inc. was formed and Auburn Electric, Inc. was shut down. AECCI sponsors & endorses community, civic, and national organizations, enriching our lives and making a difference in the community.
AECCI’s corporate officers include Donald G. Lanier as CEO, Steve Pruitt as President, Robert Henderson as Vice President/Project Manager, and Maryann Jackson as Secretary/Treasurer. Project managers for AECCI include, Robbie Henderson, Wade Miller, Tyrone McKissic, Kevin Anderson, , and Jason Moon. Estimating is done by Steve Pruitt and Bobby Pruitt. In 2014 we opened our Service Department, led by Wade Winslett. Our warehouse operations are run by Kenny Winslett and Brandon Goodson. Together, this management team has over 150 years experience in the construction industry.
