County Electric Construction Inc. started humbly in 1963 when Albert M Cortina Sr. decided to go on his own to service all types of electrical needs.

Operating from his home initially, Al worked tirelessly to build CECI and spend time with his growing family. As the workload grew so did CECI adding more employees to accommodate all types of electrical services from Residential to Commercial to industrial installations.

The company provided electrical services but focused on building trusted relationships with each customer and word of mouth business referrals. By the mid 70’s the company moved to a small building headquartered in Bridgeport.

The move allowed CECI to expand the staff with a growing fleet of talented Electricians, engineers and project managers. As the staff grew so did the facility as the initially small building went through several transformations to accommodate the higher demands of it’s customers and new technology.

As the business continued to grow Al Sr. brought on his two sons… Albert A Cortina Jr. serving as President and Michael A. Cortina serving as Vice President.

County Electrical Contractors Inc. is enthusiastic and growing in it’s 2nd generation as it did in its inception. In 2008 the company moved to a brand new 13000 sq. ft. facility in Bridgeport.

As a 2nd generation business CECI will be proud to celebrate its 60th year in business, coming up on 2023.
