Leading the way in commercial electrical contracting since 1925.
At CSE Electric, our story is a testament to family heritage, unwavering dedication, and a commitment to excellence that spans generations. Our journey began over a century ago when our great-grandfather, James W. Carnwath, emigrated from Scotland to the United States in pursuit of the American dream. In 1925, he took his first electrifying step by founding his own electrical business, instilling in us the values of hard work, trust, and uncompromising dedication to service.
Our founder’s legacy includes the remarkable achievement of wiring a substantial portion of the iconic Little Caesars chain stores in the heart of Detroit. This accomplishment not only speaks to our family’s electrical expertise but also underscores our dedication to powering the growth and success of businesses in our community.
Continuing the legacy
Today, we proudly carry forward the tradition of excellence that has been our family’s hallmark for generations. CSE Electric has evolved into San Antonio’s leading commercial electrical contractor, serving businesses of all sizes with unmatched expertise and service. Our journey has been shaped by a century of dedication, and our commitment to building trust and loyalty through outstanding service remains as strong as ever.
“CSE Electric is a great company to do business with! Bob goes out of his way for our team and personally handles any issue we may have. Our projects have ranged from small TI, multi-story office buildings to large industrial projects. CSE has performed design build capabilities on most of these projects as well. Change orders have also never been an issue. We look forward to working on future projects with CSE Electric.”
