About Us

Keeping the lights on and motors running since 1919

As the premier electrical contractor based in Memphis, TN, Shelby Electric serves commercial and industrial clients in Memphis, West Tennessee, North Mississippi and East Arkansas. Shelby Electric possesses the unique ability to bundle all of its expertise from design build to services to sales. We are a one stop shop for any business that needs electrical services.

Many of Shelby Electric’s key staff have been associated with the firm for their entire business careers in electrical contracting. Their experience and know-how have been responsible for Shelby Electric’s continued growth. Collectively, the owners of Shelby Electric have over 100 years experience at the company.

Founded in 1919 as a small motor repair shop in Memphis, Shelby Electric soon outgrew its original location on Union Avenue. With the addition of a Wiring Department to serve its growing number of customers, the firm relocated to 390 South Main Street in downtown Memphis. In 1930, we moved to our present location at 112 East E.H. Crump Blvd.

As one of the oldest and most reliable contractors serving the Mid-South area, Shelby Electric’s wide range of capabilities has grown to include variable frequency drives, electric motor repair, apparatus sales, roadway and plant lighting and maintenance, overhead power lines, underground systems installation, traffic signal installations, high voltage power systems, infrared screening, the installation of solar power systems and fiber optic runs for data and telecommunications.
