History

Kaiser Electric was founded in 1952 when electrical engineer and entrepreneur Robert Kaiser, purchased the small electrical contracting company, Chapleau Electric. In the early days, the company was run full-time by Ed Belt with Robert Kaiser, still working for Moloney Electric, helping out on weekends. The company only had a staff of five and a small office in South St. Louis. Business was good and the company was successful. By the 1960′s Robert Kaiser had bought out Ed Belt and was now working at Kaiser Electric full-time. As business continued to expand, Robert Kaiser retired, and in 1988, passed ownership to his sons.

Today, long-time employees own 70% of Kaiser Electric. Our management team has more than a century of experience in electrical and construction contracting. Kaiser Electric recently completed work lighting the Gateway Arch, powering MSD’s Lower Meremac Lift Station and reducing energy consumption and costs in the LEED* certified Mungenast Lexus Dealership. With over 50 years in the electrical contracting business, we can handle any commercial or industrial electrical project.
