History of Brint Electric Inc.
Brint Electric Inc. was established in 1970 by Ramon and Theresa Brint. At that time, Ramon was employed full-time at a local excavating company as an estimator and project manager. He and Theresa operated this business out of a small office in their home. In May of 1970, Brint Electric was incorporated, and also became signatory to the Local 8 Electrical Union in Toledo.
In 1974, Ramon devoted all of his efforts to the electrical contracting market. At this time, Ramon and his son, Alan, took their first commercial project, the Springfield Fire Station #2. After successfully completing this work, they continued handling both small commercial and some residential electrical work.
Because of the growth of the business, the Brint team outgrew their original office and eventually moved into their existing location on Central Avenue, and his son, Ray Brint, joined the business.
In 1993, Brint Electric Inc. began estimating in the industrial electrical market. Four years later, the existing office and warehouse were renovated and doubled in size.
