Building communities begins with fewer barriers for small construction companies

Throughout the Golden State and across the nation, May was celebrated as “Small Business Month,” a time to draw attention to the mom-and-pop shops that help color the culture of the communities they serve. It is especially important for me to highlight the impact local, family run construction businesses have in building and supporting our communities.

I am proud to be associated with such a family business. Harris Electric specializes in residential, commercial and industrial projects. We are based in Fresno and have served the Central Valley for the past 55 years. Harris Electric was founded in 1964 by Tom Harris. When he retired in 1987, Tim Bremer (my father) took the reins and became owner. He started as an employee there in 1974 and has built up the company ever since.
