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 Fort Lawn:
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.

South Carolina Considers Changing Its Alcohol Laws to Attract $400 Million E. & J. Gallo Wine Bottling Plant

The proposed facility would make the tiny town of Fort Lawn the winemaker's east coast hub—assuming it's also allowed to open some tasting rooms.Earlier this week, the South Carolina House of Representatives approved a piece of legislation that would allow E.& J.

The proposed facility would make the tiny town of Fort Lawn the winemaker's east coast hub—assuming it's also allowed to open some tasting rooms.

Earlier this week, the South Carolina House of Representatives approved a piece of legislation that would allow E.& J. Gallo Winery to open a bottling plant and three tasting rooms in the state. The bill's supporters say that Gallo's proposal would provide several hundred jobs for South Carolina residents, while those who oppose it worry that it will negatively affect local wineries and restaurants.

The plant—which will actually start out as a large warehouse and distribution center—is expected to employ around 500 people. It will be located in Fort Lawn (Pop. 940) a rural town in equally rural Chester County. According to Wine Searcher, one tasting room could also open in Fort Lawn, while the others are likely to be in more tourist-friendly locations like Hilton Head and Charleston.

Bringing Gallo to South Carolina requires some modifications to the state's existing liquor laws. The Johnson City Press reports that the proposed legislation, SB 619, would allow breweries, distilleries, and wineries to open "satellite locations" where they can sell their products—and that's where the tasting rooms would come in.

Each of those facilities would only be allowed to sell wine, and they would be required to close by 5:30 p.m. Although the Gallo properties would have to purchase the wines they sell from wholesalers within the state, the bill's critics say that the tasting rooms would still be detrimental to local retailers, restaurants, and smaller wineries.

"We always seem to be in a rush to fashion new laws for some shiny object coming from out of state, bend over backwards to get rid of a system that we've had in place for a number of years," Sen. Marlon Kimpson told The State. "But the local restaurants tell me that these testing rooms unnecessarily drive up the competition."

But those in favor of the bill—and of the California company's willingness to open these facilities in South Carolin—say the positives absolutely outweigh the negatives. "This is a world player choosing to locate only its second [bottling and distribution center] in this teeny town," Sen. Mike Fanning said.

The plant is expected to be constructed on around 600 acres of land in Fort Lawn, and Gallo would invest more than $400 million in the county within the next eight years. Rob Donoho, the head of Gallo's global chain functions, said that the company "actively wants" to open this facility in South Carolina. "This is really intended to be our East Coast home for the Gallo enterprise for decades and decades to come," he told legislators this spring.

McMaster, Chester County SC celebrate opening of winemaker’s facility in Fort Lawn

S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster talked Friday afternoon about all that comes with the new Gallo’s Operations Facility in Fort Lawn.“This is a great thing,” McMaster said. “This offers careers, long-term employment, with good benefits and good work in a great company.

S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster talked Friday afternoon about all that comes with the new Gallo’s Operations Facility in Fort Lawn.

“This is a great thing,” McMaster said. “This offers careers, long-term employment, with good benefits and good work in a great company. This was a great step forward, not only for the state but for this area.”

McMaster and E&J Gallo’s CEO Ernest Gallo were in Chester County for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at what has been reported to be the winemaker’s first facility on the East Coast. A fact sheet on the Gallow website says there is a winery in New York.

Construction of the regional distribution facility started in June 2021, and there was a push to get it ready by the projected date of Oct. 3. However, company officials said this is just the first phase en route to a long and successful partnership with this state.

“It feels fantastic,” said Stein Edwards, Gallo’s Senior Director of Operations in South Carolina. “This community has been very welcoming, bringing us in. They welcomed us with open arms.

“A lot of our folks that we’ve hired are from this very local area. And they’ve been watching this project for several years, and a lot of them said, ‘hey, we can’t wait to get started, and we’re so happy what you’re doing for the community.’ So it’s really neat to be a part of.”

Gallo officials said they expect to add manufacturing lines in 2023 as they begin production and making further investments in the state.

Brooke Clinton, president of the Chester County Chamber of Commerce, said the facility will have an impact on the local area both now and in the future.

The facility is expected to bring almost 500 jobs to Lancaster and Chester counties. Fort Lawn is in Chester County, but close to the Lancaster County border.

There are currently about 80 people working at the site, and Gallo is currently adding new employees.

“We’re training the folks right now,” said Erich Kaepp, the vice president of Eastern Operations at Gallo. “We’re going through a new warehouse management system, so they’re learning how to do all those kinds of things and get ready to ship. We’ve successfully gotten eight trucks so far. We’ve gotten them all received, so it seems to be going okay, so far.”

The company cited access to the Southeast market and South Carolina’s infrastructure as reasons for choosing South Carolina as its east coast operations location.

McMaster said there will be more business opportunities coming to the state. He said the people and culture are what draw companies here.

CHESTER, S.C. — A boil water advisory for most of Chester County was lifted Monday afternoon, officials announced.

The boil water notice was issued after a water main break in the town of Fort Lawn. Shortly after 3 p.m. Monday, Chester Metropolitan District, the town's water utility service, said only customers on Edwards Road, Carabrook Road and Robinhood Road were still under a boil water notice. The remainder of the county can return to normal water usage.

Chester County Schools operated as normal on Monday but all water fountains were sealed off. The district had water bottles delivered to all campuses to help out during the outage.

Chester's water provider services approximately 7,000 customers. Chester Metropolitan announced on Facebook that it was working to contact as many customers as possible and used a reverse 911 system to contact customers about water outages and the boil water advisory.

Water service has mostly been restored after the broken water main repairs. Customers who experience discolored water are advised to flush their faucets until the water runs clear. Any water used for cooking or drinking should be boiled to eliminate bacteria that may be in the supply following repairs.

The nation's largest winemaker is quickly approaching its target for beginning operations at its massive East Coast hub in Chester County.

E. & J. Gallo Winery remains on track to start operations in October at its regional distribution center, which is part of the company's $423 million first phase of its Fort Lawn project. Erich Kaepp, who leads Gallo's East Coast operations, said the project's first manufacturing elements are also on track for an anticipated February 2023 production start.

Gallo formally announced its plans for the massive project last year after securing a significant incentives package. S.C. lawmakers also changed the state's alcohol laws to accommodate the company's operations.

Hiring is well underway, Kaepp said, with the first 15 employees for the distribution operations hired and undergoing training at York Technical College. The hiring process is moving along quickly, he added, and the company had announced nearly 500 jobs would be created in the project's first phase.

"(No concerns) for the labor cycle and the hiring," Kaepp told the Charlotte Business Journal. "That has been phenomenal. The local community has been great. We put our first 15 job postings out there and we had well over 300 applicants."

The California-based company has acquired around 640 acres at the intersection of S.C. Highway 9 and U.S. Highway 21 for the East Coast hub. The first phase is expected to include the regional distribution center, a production facility, warehousing, bottling, canning and an import and export hub.

Gallo is planning to open three production lines next year as part of the Chester County project's first phase. A production line for the company's High Noon brand is what's slated to open in February. The next two production lines are tentatively scheduled to open in May and August.

"Then, the sky is the limit from there," Kaepp said.

A construction timetable for the following phases is still being finalized. The first portion of Gallo's Chester County operations is expected to take up around 300 acres, Kaepp said. In total, the master-planned site will have five phases. It is expected to include well over $1 billion in total investment and the creation of more than 1,000 jobs.

The project site is serviced by the Lancaster & Chester Railroad and provides the winemaker with access to the Port of Charleston. The connectivity and abundance of land available for future expansions made the site attractive to Gallo's leadership.

After breaking ground on the project last summer, Gallo is now moving to bring the operational side of the project to life.

"That's one of the things that we're really striving to do here is establish a culture," Kaepp said. "If you do that correctly, all of the other things will take care of themselves."

Woman reported missing from senior-living facility in ‘good spirits’ after being found

CHESTER COUNTY, S.C. — A 79-year-old woman who was reported missing on Sept. 13 from Helms-Gordon Residential Care in Fort Lawn has been found alive, the Chester County Sheriff’s Office said.

Authorities said Thursday a drone spotted Judy Pate in a wooded area along Cemetery Road, which had already been searched.

“Around 11 a.m., a group of guys looked at that map again that was reviewed a thousand times and said, ‘This is what we’re going to do,’” said Chester County Sheriff Max Dorsey. “They got our drone operator and said, ‘Let’s go down and do this,’ and it happened. There’s no doubt God led them down there.”

Family members were relieved.

“It’s really emotional because you expect the worse, but here today, we’ve come to realize that God had a plan,” said David Elliot, Pate’s nephew.

“She’s in good spirits,” Elliot said. “She was moving a little. She was found at the bottom of a ravine. A creek bed. She was talking.”

Volunteers, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division helicopter and multiple agencies helped with the search.

Pate’s pastor, Rev. Trent McLaughlin, helped with the search.

“She is a strong lady,” McLaughlin said. “She trusts God. She has faith in God and that is what we’re putting our hope and faith in that. That she’s going to be found alive and safe.”

An ambulance rushed her to a medical helicopter that flew her to the hospital to be checked out.

On Tuesday, Sept. 26, the Pate family announced that DHEC was launching an investigation into Helms-Gordon Residential Care.

They issued a statement regarding the investigation saying:

“The Pate family has received and reviewed the results of the initial investigation into the Helms-Gordon Facility performed by DHEC. To say they are disgusted and upset with the findings would be an understatement. Helms-Gordon was cited multiple times for violations of the State imposed standards of care. The investigation indicates that Ms. Judy was missing for hours before anyone at Helms-Gordon was even aware. Furthermore, the investigation states that upon discovering that Ms. Judy was missing, Helms-Gordon waited hours before contacting the Chester County Sheriff’s Office. This delayed response to authorities is abhorrent, and unforgivable. We intend to pursue every avenue of justice to ensure that no other person or family has to undergo this type of nightmare due to the inactions of an irresponsible facility.”
