Gary Cordray and his wife, Nicole, started Cordray Electric in September 2000 with only $500, three employees and an old 1987 Mazda truck.  Their first office was in their kitchen, where Nicole would handle the accounting and Gary would handle the electrical field work with his brother, Stephen.  Gary and Stephen had already worked together as electricians for many years with various electrical companies, and had gained valuable insight on the right way to run an electrical contracting business.  In the years since, Cordray Electric has grown into a reputable, trusted commercial electrical contractor.

Cordray Electric was recently featured in the Albuquerque Journal’s Business OutlookÓ for our “Expanding ‘Family’”, where Gary attributed the company’s success to only providing permanent employment.  Gary and Stephen look at their employees as an extended family, hiring experienced, knowledgeable electricians for the long-term rather than for the near future or a specific job.

Cordray Electric delivers prompt, professional electrical service regionally through our skilled team.  Our primary business and reputation is built upon customer relationships, many of which began at our company’s creation.  We deal with our customers, employees and vendors with fairness, integrity and a partnering approach.  Our mission is to continue meeting all of the electrical construction and service requirements of our existing customers, while establishing new relationships with other reputable companies.

We are actively involved in the community. We want to help Albuquerque grow in order to provide a better future filled with positive opportunities. Cordray Electric’s business memberships include the American Subcontractors Association of New Mexico and the Better Business Bureau. Community association affiliations include the Boy Scouts of America and UNM Lobo Club. We have also provided in-kind or financial donations to Casa Esperanza, Disabled American Veterans, Muscular Dystrophy Association and Habitat for Humanity, to name a few.

At Cordray Electric, we strive to provide a safe working environment for all our employees.  It is our intent to continually improve our policies and procedures regarding safety.  We recognize that accidents and injuries are often prevented by providing safe work areas.  We continually check our job sites and train our employees to make sure that we are complying with the latest OSHA regulations and standards. If there is anything that we can do to prevent an accident from occurring, we take immediate action. Protection of our employees, the public and company property is paramount and takes precedence over expediency

Our employees are our greatest asset.  We are always looking for motivated, qualified employees to add to our team.  We offer a competitive compensation package that includes a life, health and dental insurance program and an IRA plan with employer match.

Cordray Electric is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to providing our employees a safe and harassment-free workplace. All qualified candidates are invited to apply at our office.

Applications are accepted Monday – Friday, 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. at our office
