25 Years of Excellent Service
Ed Wheat, President of Wheat Electric & Controls & Master Electrician, is a proud father of five, husband of one, and a licensed master electrician in the state of Texas (License #23081).
After serving in Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm as a Cavalry Scout (19D) in the US Army, upon honorable discharge, Ed studied Electronic Instrumentation Technology at Texas State Technical College. Upon graduation with honors in early 1995, he went to work for International Paper Corp. in a heavy industrial construction and start up environment for three years. Later, he would work for Louisiana Pacific Corp. in a similar capacity advancing from a shift electrician to electrical department supervisor and eventually Maintenance Superintendent over the course of 9 years. Ed began filling the needs of wood products facilities and worked shutdown maintenance on weekends, upgrading existing production equipment in NE Texas, NW Louisiana, and southern Arkansas.
After marrying his Central-South Texas sweetheart, Rachel, Ed fell in love with the culture and beauty of the area. He listened to and followed his heart by leaving the Fortune 500 game, fully committing to his dream of serving South Texas by founding Wheat Electric & Controls, LLC in 2007. The company began by building numerous commercial projects (6 Planet Fitness locations throughout San Antonio and Austin). Wanting to return to his professional roots, Ed sought industrial clientele, and upon achieving his goal, he never looked back while continuing to serve commercial and residential customers. To this day, over 30 facilities rely upon the expertise of Wheat Electric & Controls to stay profitable and in production.
What Our Clients Are Saying
After a bad storm, we had electrical problems. We called Wheat Electric to come out. Nick and Troy were the electricians.
They determined the problem and fixed it in a timely manner. They arrived on time and were very friendly, very professional, and did an excellent job. Thank you Troy and Nick.
Troy and Nick were very helpful in figuring out how to install a floor outlet on a tight space in our pier and beam home. The addition of our under cabinet lighting came out great. Overall they were very knowledgeable and made sure we were satisfied with their work.
We had to call for a worn out dryer receptacle repair. Journeyman Troy came with his apprentice Nick. They throughly did the inspection for damage, completed the repair and post-safety inspection. Good communication, good quality workmanship, attention to details, and fair pricing. We would call upon Wheat Electric again.
Guys were knowledgeable, friendly and easy to talk to. They were efficient with their time and we will certainly use them again.
