Commercial Electricians Serving Redding &  


California Area

"Our mission at M & J Electric is to provide the best service available in the Commercial Electrical Industry. We are a proven company that has over 100 years of combined experience within the management alone.  M & J Electric has successfully completed hundreds of various projects on time and within budget, with customer satisfaction, safety and integrity being our primary focus."



      M&J Electric was founded in 1984 by its president Michael Thurber, as a family-owned partnership. In 1997 the company was incorporated as MD Thurber Inc., dba M&J Electric. M&J Electric has on average approximately 20 employees and is a certified small business. M&J Electric uses only licensed electricians and indentured apprentices who are enrolled in a random drug testing program. M&J Electric has put a major emphasis in their safety program by adapting a new Injury & Illness Prevention Plan, which includes training the majority of their employees in the OSHA 30 class. Due to a very low incident rate and a firm safety program, MD Thurber Inc., dba M&J Electric is able to achieve a low EMR.

     M&J Electric has successfully constructed large and small commercial and industrial projects in Siskiyou, Shasta, and Tehama Counties, including commercial buildings, schools, hospitals, co-generation, water, wastewater, mining and correctional institutions. M&J Electric had two separate construction divisions, Commercial and Industrial, but now focuses on mostly commercial projects they are invited to bid on.

     M&J Electric has about a dozen, varying commercial electrical projects in progress at one time. Because M&J Electric focuses mainly on Commercial Projects, they do not provide residential electrical work and are moving away from industrial developments as well. MD Thurber Inc., dba M&J Electric strives to be the best electrical contractor in the Redding area with expertise in electrical, lighting, fire alarm, data communication, and surveillance camera systems. M&J Electric has superior knowledge and experience in all phases of commercial electrical design, installation, and troubleshooting.

Redding Rancheria has been an active, positive member in the greater Redding Community since established, and currently contributes nearly $100 million annually to our local economy. With a move to a more accessible location along I-5, that number will grow dramatically, capturing more business from out of the area and converting that business into our local economy.

As President John F. Kennedy once said,

"A rising tide lifts all boats."
