About ALLCOM Electric

Experience You Can Count On

Allcom Electric has been servicing California since 1986. We have grown and molded throughout the years while emerging markets came and went. We have constantly remained a strong, capable contractor serving both incredibly high-tech, high-profile clients as well as the mom-and-pop businesses. Allcom Electric maintains a strong presence throughout the west coast with office locations in the San Francisco Bay Area and Orange County, and we are capable of completing work in any area of California. We also recently acquired our Nevada State Contractor’s License for both line voltage and low voltage, and are rapidly expanding our range throughout the state of Nevada.

Our strategic endeavors into new geographical markets have led us to working on obtaining our Nevada license which we hope to branch out there soon.

History

Allcom Electric had humble beginnings as All Electric in 1986. On the eve of his first child being born, Founder and CEO Mike Neil quit his job and started Electrical Contracting. With two other employees he built custom homes and commercial TI’s in San Francisco. After years working in the field it was time to aim big and Mike started another division, Allcom, which was dedicated to low voltage installations. In 2003, the two divisions were merged to form Allcom Electric and the real work began. In 2006, Allcom Electric penetrated into the southern California market, and has continued to grow across the west. Growing on their formula of success in new markets, they have expanded their service area to include all of California and, in 2016, Nevada.

Hand grown and nurtured from its inception, Allcom Electric has grown into what it is today and continues to thrive and grow despite rough economic times, turning increasing revenues year after year.
