Auburn Electric Mission Statement

Auburn Electrical Construction Company, Inc. is an innovative contracting firm that profitably provides electrical-related services to our customers. Our goal is to provide our customers with a value-oriented service on a timely basis. We will continually seek mutually desirable relationships based on integrity for long-term success.


Our History

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 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.

Effective work is

the cornerstone of 

any successful business.

AECCI specializes in all forms of commercial and industrial electrical work, including manufacturing plants, treatment plants, healthcare facilities, schools, sports venues, office buildings, retail stores, and outside electrical distribution.

Where AECCI goes

Financial Information

AECCI is currently licensed in five southeastern states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi. We have the capability, given sufficient travel time, to acquire licensing for other states, should the need arise.

In the past AECCI has worked in a large portion of the southeastern United States. We have been as far as Fayetteville, North Carolina to the east, Kingsport, Tennessee to the north, Shreveport, Louisiana to the west and Marco Island, Florida to the south. We have superintendents and key personnel that will travel as the needs arise.

We are usually able to find plenty of work “close to home”. Most of our work now is within the State of Alabama and the State of Georgia. However, depending on the project and scope of work, we will still consider traveling to other areas.

AECCI currently has an annual volume of approx. $22 million. When we made the transition from Auburn Electric to AECCI, we cut our volume to about $6 million. We are steadily growing each year, while maintaining our profitability and quality workmanship. Our largest single project ever completed was the new Retirement Systems of Alabama Judicial Office Building in Montgomery, AL, with a total electrical value of about $16,000,000.00. Our bonding company is:
