Company History

Arc Electric has been focusing on industrial and commercial electrical construction since it was started by Michael Micene in 1974. In 1981, his electrician and son-in-law, Robert Judd, became partner and later bought the company.

Business took off as Bob's innovative thinking and focus on unparalleled customer service became well known. He grew the business to include residential work and was a force to reckon with in the business and local communities, volunteering with CAN-DO, the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce and many other local endeavors. His commitment to marketing, networking and community service built a rock solid foundation for progress to stand on.

In 1996 his wife Elaine became partner and helped take the company to even higher levels of success. Elaine started as Secretary/Treasurer, CFO and Office Manager. She established many of the policies and management strategies that helped Arc become the leading electrical contractor in the Hazleton industrial marketplace.

Once the back end was up to speed, the front end got a makeover. In the late 90's, Arc became a Certified generator dealer for Generac and Honeywell, offering a full inventory of automatic standby generators for home and business. Services include installation and warranty maintenance as well as repair.

Never ones to let a resource sit on the sidelines, Bob and Elaine's son Greg Judd joined the company in 2000 first gaining field experience, later adding Estimator and Project Manager to his responsibilities. This freed up Bob's time to improve marketing strategies and grow the business even more.

By 2006 they were once again reinventing themselves by launching a division totally dedicated to residential customers with on-call, on-time, 112%-guaranteed satisfaction. The Wire Guys by Arc Electric quickly became known as the most responsive, hard-working, reliable electricians for Hazleton and other local homeowners.

In 2008 generators again took a front seat as The Wire Guys became an Elite Generac dealer, opening a new division concentrated solely on back-up power for homes and small business. With fast, certified turnkey installation, up-front pricing and Wire Guy guarantees, it took no time for them to become recognized as the #1 Generac Dealer in Pennsylvania, serving home and small business owners all over the Poconos and Northeast PA.

In late 2011, Bob passed away unexpectedly and Elaine took the steering wheel as President and CEO. As VP and COO, Greg Judd leads the electrical team and helps manage the company's future.

The Wire Guys reached the PowerPro Elite level of Generac dealers in 2013, also becoming a dealer for Briggs & Stratton and GE generators.

With a backseat full of superb electricians and other excellent staff, our momentum continues as the Hazleton Chamber once again recognized our company as Small Business of the Year for 2014.
