About Erico Electric

Expert Electricians in the Upper Peninsula for 15+ Years

Erico Electric is based in the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula and has been providing the western Upper Peninsula with expert electrical services since it was formed by Rory Erickson in 2003. Since then, we’ve grown to employ over twenty dedicated electricians as the company has expanded its commercial and automation panel services. Working both locally and nationally, Erico has established its reputation by providing high-quality and professional service to all of our clients.

Our Team

Our clients have kept us busy over the past several years. As a result, our team has quadrupled in size in order to continue providing efficient and high-quality electrical services as our customer base has grown. All of the apprentices at Erico are registered in the state-approved Penn-Foster apprenticeship program.

As a team, we specialize in commercial wiring and industrial electrical maintenance. We know the importance of providing professional and exceptional service, and we strive to do that while also having fun and getting to know our customers who continue to support us.
