DALLAS/FT WORTH - The plan is to stay busy for the young-er generations to come. In 1995, Se K. Lee became the original founder of Lee Electric Co. Then in 2003, the name changed to SK Electric Inc. They have been doing commercial business in the DFW Metroplex area for over 20 years.




    Lee received a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from Seoul National University of Science & Technology, Seoul, South Korea. While in South Korea, he worked for an electrical construction company called Seoul Jeon Sang Electrical Construction Co.
    In 1995, Lee moved to the United States and found himself in business with a friend. He describes the business as a “power sports business” with “motorcycles and jet skies.” Financially, the business found itself at the end of the tunnel.
    As for Lee, he started to use his degree and experience from the electrical business company in Korea.
    Today, his company is located in northwest Dallas. Lee has 25-30 employees working at SK Electric. Lee is a licensed Master Electrician, along with a couple other crewmembers. They also have five journeymen.
    Robert Lee, project coordinator said, “We try to keep our guys as long as possible. We train them if they need additional help, or help receiving their journeyman’s and hopefully masters [license]. Robert mentions there is always work for their guys, even if it doesn’t involve a project. “We’ll have some kind of work for them to do; whether it’s organizing the warehouse or delivering materials,” he said.
    The company services cater to 90 percent commercial. A current project the crew is working on is an assisted living senior home located in Mansfield. 
    Lee wants the company’s future to continue to rise. “I want to increase the annual sales,” he said.
    As we geared toward company involvement outside of work Lee says, “A sport activity we don’t do yet, but I have a plan.” Lee rides a bicycle, so maybe that will spark up some interest.
    SK Electric Inc. is an electrical contractor located in Dallas, TX. –lv
