Hire Electric Inc. are Electrical Contractors that are fully licensed, bonded, and insured to perform work in both Oregon and Washington. Hire Electric was established in the late 1930’s and was incorporated in 1974.
We normally have 15-25 electricians at any one time, plus an office support staff.
Additional electricians to man our projects are readily available through IBEW Local 48 in Portland, Oregon. Our electricians complete a 5-year training program, and maintain a continuing education program annually. Most of our journeyman electricians have completed their apprenticeships through the NECA-IBEW Training Center, a state-of-the-art facility, located in Portland, Oregon.
For over a century, NECA/IBEW Local 48’s electricians have helped build Oregon and SW Washington. NECA and IBEW Local 48 have partnered in labor-management relations to lead the region’s electrical industry, working on such high-profile projects as the Rose Garden Arena (now the Moda Center), Portland International Airport, Tilikum Crossing and MAX Light Rail stations.
