Doleac Electric Company was founded in Hattiesburg, Mississippi in 1947 by Malcom C. Doleac. The initial capitalization of the company included $500.00 in cash and a used service truck. The initial work force of the company included Malcom C. Doleac and his good friend Jerry N. Daniel, both were journeymen wireman and charter members of then Local Union 1575 of the IBEW.
In the early years the company performed mainly residential, service work and light commercial work.
After the death of company founder Malcom Doleac in 1972, Donnie and Larry Doleac took over the leadership role in the company. Donnie's main responsibilities were to manage the inside operations of the company while Larry took on managing the field operations of the company.
In the early 1980's the decision was made to pursue more commercial, industrial, retail and institutional projects and to leave the residential market. During this time to present day Doleac Electric has been successful in acquiring and performing these projects and has grown from a company with gross sales of approximately $500,000.00 to $750,000.00 in 1972 to over $48M in sales in 2007.
In November of 1994 Doleac Electric saw an opportunity for growth on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and opened its' Gulfport Division office. Under our guidance and due to the aggressive and "never quit" attitude of our Gulfport Division Manager, Warren Saucier and staff, we began to pursue the military construction market at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS, The Naval Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport, and Stennis Space Center in Hancock County, MS. At this same time we also pursued industrial maintenance and construction projects along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. After several years of hard work and perseverance, we were able to carve out our niche in the military and industrial market on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Doleac Electric Company continues to strive to have a major presence in the electrical construction industry in the South. To date we have been able to accomplish this by providing quality workmanship, on time and within budget.
