I am a searcher currently analyzing potential opportunities in a low voltage electric contract company in the bay area. I would love to speak to anyone who has experience in this industry. I want to make sure I cover all risks before proceeding further.

Below are some of the hurdles/risks I see at the moment.

  • C-10 and general B license requirement. I don’t have them and I want to understand the risk of designating an employee
  • Owner relationship-driven business. This is a $3M revenue, 7 employee company. How likely is it that the business will leave along with the owner?
  • Hiring and training of employees. How tight is the hiring market for electricians? How difficult is it to train a newly hired electrician out of technical school?

Thanks, Shun
