A few of our most popular commercial and industrial electrical services include but are not limited to:

Circuit Breakers

Tripped Circuit Breakers

Your businesses' electrical system will trip when it has too much electricity running through it. These problems are very common in commercial properties and usually stem from one of three culprits: circuit overloads, short circuits, and ground fault surges. Obviously, when your circuits are tripped regularly, your business operations suffer. To help solve your circuit breaker problems, our commercial electricians will come to your location for in-depth troubleshooting. Once we discover the root cause, we'll get to work on repairing your circuit breaker, so you can continue working and serving your customers.

Flickering Lights

Flickering Lights

Like tripped circuit breakers, dimming or flickering lights are among the most common commercial electrical problems in South Carolina. These issues typically stem from poor electrical connections. These poor connections will usually cause sparks, which can start fires and wreak havoc on your commercial building. While dimming lights might seem minor, if you leave this problem to fester, you could be looking at permanent damage to your businesses' electrical systems. Given the danger involved in fixing this problem, it's important that you work with a licensed business electrician like Engineered Electrical Solutions as soon as you're able to.

Dead Power Outlets

Dead Power Outlets

Dead power outlets aren't always dangerous, unlike other recurring commercial electrical issues. They are, however, disruptive to your company's productivity. Dead outlets are common in older commercial buildings and are often caused by circuit overloads. Connecting multiple high-wattage devices and appliances to the same power socket can cause overheating. When the power outlet overheats, it can lead to tripped circuit breakers. In some cases, the live wire catches fire and burns until it is disconnected. For a reliable solution using high-quality switches, sockets, and circuit breakers, it's best to hire a professional business electrician to get the job done right.

Residential Electrician vs. Commercial Electrician in Charleston:
What's the Difference?

Finding a real-deal, qualified commercial electrician in South Carolina is harder than you might think. Whether it's due to availability or budget, you might be tempted to hire a residential electrician for your commercial electrical problem. While it's true that great residential electricians can help solve commercial issues in theory, it's always best to hire a business electrician with professional experience.

Unlike their residential colleagues, commercial electricians are licensed to deal with different materials and procedures suited specifically for businesses. Commercial wiring is much more complex than residential, and is strategically installed with maintenance, repair, and changes in mind. Additionally, commercial properties usually use a three-phase power supply, necessitating more schooling, skills, and technical ability to service.

The bottom line? If you're a business owner with commercial electricity problems, it's best to work with a licensed commercial electrician, like you will find at Engineered Electrical Solutions.

SHL Medical establishing operations in Charleston County

$90 million investment to create an estimated 165 new jobs COLUMBIA, S.C. – ...

COLUMBIA, S.C. – SHL Medical, a world-leading provider of drug delivery solutions, today announced plans to establish operations in Charleston County. The company’s initial $90 million investment will create an estimated 165 new jobs.

Headquartered in Switzerland, SHL Medical designs, develops and manufactures drug delivery solutions for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies around the world. With years of experience, the company uses top-notch technology to create autoinjectors, pen injectors and innovative specialty delivery solutions that allow patients to self-inject at home. The company also offers contract manufacturing and engineering services for products such as wafer testing equipment, laboratory handling equipment, neurosurgical devices and industrial equipment.

Located at 7791 Palmetto Commerce Parkway in North Charleston, SHL Medical’s Charleston County operations will expand the company’s global footprint to meet growing demand for its products to support more customers.

Operations are expected to launch by the second quarter of 2024. Individuals interested in joining the SHL Medical team should visit the company’s careers page.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. The council also awarded a $250,000 Set-Aside grant to Charleston County to assist with costs related to the project.

QUOTES

"I am delighted to announce SHL’s expansion into South Carolina. Our new U.S. site in North Charleston will be a state-of-the-art facility that will support our customers further with our end-to-end capabilities, providing high-quality drug delivery systems to the end users – patients around the world. This new facility brings us closer to our customers and reduces the risk of supply chain disturbances. Furthermore, it will support our sustainability goals by lessening global shipping distances. I want to acknowledge the support that we have received from the state and county levels for this project." -SHL Medical Chairman and CEO Ulrich Faessler

“We are proud to welcome SHL Medical to South Carolina. Not only will they contribute to Charleston County’s economic development, but also to the booming life sciences industry of the state. We welcome their $90 million investment and the 165 new jobs they will create.” -Gov. Henry McMaster

‘Move over Charleston,’ national magazine proclaims, as it highlights another SC city

Greenville has gotten a lot of publicity about its downtown, but never quite as effusive as Fodor Travel’s July feature entitled, “You’re going to the wrong city in the Carolinas.”The subhead proclaims, “Move over, Charleston.”“A new Southern belle is rapidly catching travelers’ attention,” ...

Greenville has gotten a lot of publicity about its downtown, but never quite as effusive as Fodor Travel’s July feature entitled, “You’re going to the wrong city in the Carolinas.”

The subhead proclaims, “Move over, Charleston.”

“A new Southern belle is rapidly catching travelers’ attention,” the magazine says. “In the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville, South Carolina, thrives.”

Charleston is probably not too worried — it’s the fastest growing city in the state, was on the list of 25 best cities in the world and tourism having a $10 billion impact each year.

Fodors, though, offers a true love letter to a small city that has rebounded over the past 50 years from a hardscrabble almost abandoned Main Street to a tree-lined thoroughfare flush with mostly home-grown restaurants, stores and businesses.

“With the warmth of a small town and the urban planning of the future, Greenville’s intentionality stands out,” the magazine says. “The downtown feels intimate thanks to building height restrictions as well as the clusters of gathering spaces all over. Here, a swing; there, a picnic table. Perhaps it’s the not-so-distant memories of state-wide lockdowns, but these spaces feel intimate and necessary.”

Many of the suggested places to see and things to do mentioned in the story have been highlighted in previous publications such as Southern Living and Travel + Leisure, but Fodors takes the description of this city of 100,000 a bit further.

For example, it highlights aspects of the Swamp Rabbit Trail and downtown’s Falls Park on the Reedy not written about in other publications.

Fodors details broad sidewalks and wheelchair-accessible paths along the Reedy River. The call is “casually athletic” and suggests taking part in Greenville’s Main Street scavenger hunt, Mice on Main, a high school senior project of Jim Ryan in 2000 and inspired by the children’s book Goodnight Moon.

Greenville sculptor and illustrator Zan Wells brought the nine bronze mice to life.

Wells’ work is prominently featured in Greenville’s downtown, including sculptures of Joel Poinsett, 19th century statesman and Greenville summer visitor for whom the poinsettia is named; Charles Townes, Greenville native inventor of the maser; and Dick Riley, former South Carolina governor and Greenville lawyer.

Fodors, of course, highlights food, noting Greenville has 150 restaurants.

“These aren’t just any old restaurants either, Greenville chefs come from backgrounds like French Laundry and NOMA, with multiple restaurants nominated as semifinalists for James Beard awards,” the magazine said.

It features Juniper, Jianna and CAMP, as did Travel + Leisure in its July feature on Greenville as one of the state’s best-kept secrets.

The Swamp Rabbit trail, a perennial favorite of travel magazines, was mentioned as well by Fodors.

“This is not one of those intense trails just for cycling enthusiasts in tight spandex (though there’s plenty of spandex on the trail). However, there are also parents pushing strollers, toddlers on scooters and families simply taking a leisurely stroll with their children,” the magazine said.

The article encourages making the trail and all-day event with stops at The Commons and Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocer.

“Here, you’re encouraged to sit and enjoy a bite. Even on the segments of the trail where nature takes over, cloaking the sides with greenery and growth, little benches beckon you to sit down, slow down, and simply be,” the magazine said.

Outside Greenville, the magazine suggests, going to Paris Mountain State Park and Chattooga Belle Farm for some pure muscadine moonshine, but not before going to BMW to see its museum BMW Zentrum or driving a BMW at the BMW Performance Center, also featured in Thrillist’s profile of Greer as a hidden gem among America’s suburbs.

Cooking meat low and slow over an indirect heat source—the only real qualifications for barbecue—is a truly American tradition, going back to indigenous cultures and picked up by early Spanish colonizers who also gave it the name the cooking style goes by now: barbacoa. Today, barbecue is a wildly popular staple across the U.S., with many cities and regions boasting their own take (and all claiming to have the best). Because barbecue meat spends hours upon hours cooking, restaurants are a go-to source for many Americans who would rather not spend all day and all night tending to their flames. Stacker compiled a list of the highest-rated barbecue restaurants in Charleston, South Carolina on Tripadvisor. Tripadvisor rankings factor in the average rating and number of reviews. Some restaurants on the list may have recently closed.

SC Suicide Lifeline Call Center seeing increase in calls after 988 changeover

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- South Carolina’s only National Suicide Prevention Lifeline call center is seeing an increase in calls after the lifeline changed its number to 988 one week ago.“In the first week we saw more call volume coming in, particularly on Sunday,” said Jennifer Butler, the Director of the South Carolina Department of Mental Health Office of Emergenc...

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- South Carolina’s only National Suicide Prevention Lifeline call center is seeing an increase in calls after the lifeline changed its number to 988 one week ago.

“In the first week we saw more call volume coming in, particularly on Sunday,” said Jennifer Butler, the Director of the South Carolina Department of Mental Health Office of Emergency Services.

On Saturday, July 16, 988’s first day in action, the in-state call center received 130 calls and answered 75 of them.

During the next day, July 17, the center received 173 calls and answered 121 of them.

“There was a lot of media attention which was wonderful to educate the public about this vital resource that is now available and easier to access,” said Butler. “We want local people (to answer calls) because they know local resources.”

The news of more people calling in is positive because in June the center answered an average of 75 calls a day.

Unanswered In-State Calls from 988’s First Weekend in South Carolina

But there have been concerns about numbers growing once the school year starts and every student has the 988 number printed on their student identification card.

“If we are already seeing an increase in call volume we know that would likely only continue especially as more people become familiar with the service,” said Butler.

The issue at hand for the call center and SCDMH is how to handle an overwhelming surge. Especially, since the 1.3 million dollars in funding allocated for the department needs to be used for the construction of a secondary call center in the Lowcountry that is slated to open in January.

“We need that $1.3 million to build that second call center so we make sure there is as much access as possible,” said Butler.

One way those who need mental health assistance can take the burden off of 988 is by using the statewide Mobile Crisis Unit, which received 149 calls last weekend and has a guaranteed responder on the other end of the line.

“So why would you use Mobile Crisis? You could use that if you were feeling suicidal and if you were having strong mental health symptoms such as depression or sycosis or anxiety,” said Butler. “You can use that for any type of mental health distress including if it is a co-occurring mental health and substance abuse situation.”

In the meantime, SCDMH is applying for grant money for 988 and the Mobile Crisis Unit.

The Mobile Crisis number is 833-364-2274.

New Suicide Prevention Lifeline number making it easier for veterans to get help

Until relief comes in January, Butler says that in one week 988 has seen more than just an increase in calls.

“We are either seeing a higher text volume or a higher chat volume as well,” said Butler.
