AC Electric’s Beginnings as an Electrical Contractor in Cleveland
As Told By the Owner-Founder, Asmint Cruz
When I first began AC Electric in1999, my idea was to start a general contracting company. In other words, I didn’t set out to be an electrical contractor in Cleveland. Rather, I wanted to do work I enjoyed while helping homeowners. The plan was to install or repair whatever they needed help with. My first customers were a lovely couple (Elaine and John) in Lakewood, Ohio. When I wrote my first invoice, I remember feeling a great sense of satisfaction. My skills gave them a product they needed at a reasonable cost. That experience set my business mission into motion. The company I built would have contractors who loved their work, did it well, and provided exceptional customer service. This vision guided our growth as an electrical contractor in Cleveland.
A Passion of Electrical Work Directed the Company’s Growth
As I helped more customers with their home remodeling projects, I found myself drawn to the electrical trade. As a result, I registered with Polaris University under the Adult’s Training Course. While there, I had the great privilege of learning from electrical professor Doug Lehota. He broke complex electrical engineering concepts down to the most minute detail. Consequently, my understanding of electrical systems flourished. My curiosity and desire to learn more grew, too. At this point, I knew that I wanted to narrow my focus to be the best electrical contractor in Cleveland!
