Helping Companies with Electrical Compliance

Electrical Services for Industrial Projects - Archer Electric - Oshkosh, WisconsinArcher Electric was created in 2004 in response to the growing need for both electrical troubleshooting and safety consultation in the myriad of electrically hazardous environments and situations. It was also formed to help businesses in Central and Southeast Wisconsin navigate the increasingly complex OSHA, federal, and state regulations.

Since then, Archer Electric has helped commercial and industrial customers from manufacturing to healthcare facilities, and educational institutions to food processing plants, understand these complicated regulations and identify potential compliance issues. The most common areas of identified need are Arc Flash Evaluation engineering studies and Lockout/Tagout programming (consistently one of Wisconsin’s most-frequently cited areas of violation by OSHA safety inspectors).
