About Us

Gulf South Electric was initially established in 1992. After years of dedicated service, owner and Master Electrician, Keith Gravois, joined the team of a local electrical contractor. Keith ran this company for many years assuming the duties and responsibilities of all phases of electrical construction: with special interest in motor controls. Soon his drive for independence called him into self employment once again. Only this time, he joined forces with lead electrician, Rex Archer; an unbeatable team by today’s standards.

In October of 2008, they restructured Gulf South Electric and set out to provide their customary superior service to the Gulf Coast region. Property Management electrical service became a special area as more and more property managers started using our service. Their commitment to customer satisfaction has always been top priority, second only, to the desire to implement their own ethical standards into the company. Hard work, honesty and fairness has made Gulf South Electric & Solar a quality service provider.
