Salem Electric Company was founded in 1946 and has been continuously family owned and operated ever since. Located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Salem Electric employs over 300 people.

We are involved in a state supported Electrical Apprenticeship Program in conjunction with Forsyth Technical Community College. This is a four-year program requiring 500 hours of classroom training and 8000 hours of on-the-job training.
