Columbia River Electrical Contractors began in 2004 as a 2-4 employee business operating out of the living room of then owners Allen and Ronda Spaur. Between 2011 & 2015, under the leadership of new owners Jim Medina and Rob Heimann, the company broadened its strategic plan and established a larger market presence by investing in quality personnel, new technology and resources. This growth has been sustained with current corporate operations of 15 staff employees, 20 supervisors, 100 craftsmen and two business offices located in Kennewick, WA and Umatilla, OR.
