Our story starts in 2006, when Troy Strang and Scott Whitaker established their own electrical contracting company. They had 39 years combined, working in the field as electricians and later in the office running work as project managers. In the early days, starting from humble beginnings Troy and Scott would work in the field during the day completing secured projects while spending nights and weekends estimating more work to secure the future of Centennial Electric’s success. Troy would work from his office, a bonus room in his home in Olivet, while Scott worked from his office, an extra bedroom in his home in Grand Ledge. Two storage units located in Lansing, MI served as the company’s first warehouse.
2010 through 2020 served as a decade of growth for the company. In 2010 the corporate office and warehouse was moved to Charlotte, MI. Serving as a central location for our employees and a place to service our customers located across the State of Michigan. In 2014, Centennial Electric secured one of its more extensive projects, State of Michigan’s Steven T Mason Building office remodel which helped springboard the future of Centennial Electric, proving the size of projects they were now capable of handling. Since then Centennial Electric has continued to grow completing other notable projects such as Michigan’s State Capitol Upgrade, Cooley Law School Stadium Renovations, Michigan State Police – Secondary Complex, Delta Crossing’s Shopping Center, and many more.
Centennial Electric continues to dedicate its efforts to advancing the Electrical industry and its workforce. Troy volunteers his time on the IBEW/NECA Apprenticeship Board and has maintained an active membership in the National Electrical Contractor Association (NECA). Through attending national conferences and conventions Centennial Electric is able to stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends and technology, further advancing the future of our communities.
