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 Moncks Corner:
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.

"Ever since Avinoam Ron founded A&R in 1985, we have worked hard to establish a reputation for quality, reliability and safety, which has afforded us the privilege to serve some of the leading global chemicals producers and traders," A&R Executive Vice President Jason Blinkoff said in a statement.

Located 26 miles from the Port of Charleston in Moncks Corner, A&R operates a 240,000 square foot warehouse which features two high-speed automated packaging lines, rail access to the CSX main-line, and onsite storage for over 120 railcars. The facility primarily focuses on transloading and packaging polyethylene pellets for a blue-chip customer base comprised of chemicals producers and trading houses, according to a press release.

"Over the past decade, the Port of Charleston has been one of the fastest-growing export hubs for the North American chemicals industry and A&R has grown into a leading provider of critical supply chain solutions during that time," NOVA Infrastructure founder and partner Allison Kingsley said in a statement.

"We believe this industry will continue to be a leading exporter into large and high-growth global end markets," she continued in her statement. "We are excited to support A&R as it expands its service offerings, grows its market footprint, and further entrenches its long-term customer relationships."

In tandem with this acquisition, according to the press release, A&R has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with NOVA's portfolio company Harbor Logistics. The agreement aligns Harbor, A&R, and NOVA as long-term partners to deliver a broader suite of comprehensive supply chain solutions in North America.

The press release says the partnership will utilize each company's resources, operational capabilities, and experience to develop, construct, finance, and operate specialized logistics infrastructure across North America.

"I have had the pleasure of working with A&R and Jason for many years when I was at the port and welcome the opportunity to bring Harbor’s commercial and operational capabilities to this partnership," said Micah Mallace, the president of Harbor Logistics and the former Chief Commercial Officer of the South Carolina Ports Authority.

"The pairing of Harbor's core competencies with A&R's chemicals packaging expertise offers our mutual customers an even higher level of service," he continued in his statement. "In addition, Harbor's dominance as the largest drayage provider in Charleston will afford A&R customers unparalleled cost and service to further strengthen A&R's offering."

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCIV) — The two dogs involved in the Halloween night fatal mauling of David Eller, 65, have been euthanized, Cpl. Carli Drayton of the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office said.

Recently obtained 911 calls from the night show witnesses' desperate attempts to save Eller from the pit bulls that deputies say was owned by Shannan Christine McCrackin, 45, and Kenneth Howard Swayne, 44, also of Moncks Corner.

Read more: Two arrested in connection with fatal dog attack in Moncks Corner.

One 911 caller described honking their horn in attempts to stop the attack, but they said the dogs "wouldn't stop."

That same call describes a school bus being near the scene and honking its horn. It is unknown whether children were on board the vehicle. The caller also details the scene as extremely bloody with a woman standing near the attack.

"She's screaming for the dogs to stop," the caller said to the 911 operator. "I was passing by, and I saw the dogs over the top of the person... This is some horror-type stuff."

Another person, calling from inside their mobile home, urged first responders to hurry to the scene, repeatedly stating the man was "going to die."

They also said the owner attempted to get the dogs off the man while witnesses honked the vehicles in repeated efforts to stop the attack.

The sheriff's office's preliminary investigations revealed two "vicious" pit bull dogs attacked Eller "unprovoked." The pit bulls were not contained properly, according to the BCSO.

"This was a vicious attack on an unsuspecting victim, and this should have never occurred," Sheriff Duane Lewis said in a statement on Thursday. "If the owner of the dogs would have taken the proper responsibility for the safekeeping of the animals, the attack could have been prevented."

McCrackin is charged with involuntary manslaughter and two counts of owning a dangerous animal that injures a human. Swayne is charged with two counts of owning a dangerous animal that injures a human, according to the BCSO.

McCrackin was booked on Nov. 1, and her bond was set for $45,000. As of Friday afternoon, the Berkeley County inmate search still lists her as a prisoner.

Swayne was booked the same day, and his bond was set for $20,000. As of Friday afternoon, he was also still listed as a prisoner.

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – In less than a month, Berkeley County voters will head to the polls in several municipal elections.

In Moncks Corner, residents will vote for commissioner of public works, town council and mayor.

SEE ALSO:

Since 2015, Michael Lockliear has served as the town’s mayor. However, this election year, he faces competition from political newcomer, Thomas Hamilton, 58. Although the Navy veteran has never served in an elected role before, Hamilton believes he is the best person on the ballot to lead Moncks Corner into the future.

As mayor, Hamilton says some of his priorities will include preserving the Biggins Biking/Hiking trail, revitalizing Lacey Park, addressing first responders’ pay concerns and advocating for smarter growth.

To allow voters to get to know him better, Hamilton recently took part in a Q&A by The Berkeley Observer.

1. How long have you lived in Moncks Corner?

I have lived in the town for two years; however, I have lived just outside of the town limits for 30 years.

2. What is your educational and professional background?

I am a graduate of Apollo High School in Owensboro, Kentucky, and I immediately enlisted in the U.S. Navy where I underwent extensive training in mechanics, firefighting and damage control. Over the past 34 years, I have worked in various skilled labor positions, and I am currently working as a metrology specialist. I perform calibrations across our plant. Additionally, I’ve accumulated numerous hours of team-building courses which would be invaluable in a role such as mayor.

3. Are you active in your community? If so, please elaborate.

Yes, I am actively engaged in my community. I regularly clean up trash along West Main Street, serve as a member and past Commander of the American Legion Post 126, attend various town events and make an effort to support our local small businesses. Additionally, I enjoy playing tennis on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with a local group of enthusiasts.

4. Have you ever run for political office before?

No, I haven’t run for political office before and it was never something I had considered until now.

5. Can you describe how you think Moncks Corner has changed over the years – for better or worse?

Moncks Corner has experienced both positive and negative changes over the years. On the positive side, developments like the Miracle Field and the Rec Complex have brought value to the town. However, there is concern that the towns rapid growth, including annexations and large-scale developments may be outpacing the infrastructure like roads and schools. Some citizens oppose this pace of growth and there is a worry that Moncks Corner is aiming to become the next Summerville with all of their congestion.

6. What has prompted you to run for office?

I’ve decided to run for office because I’m concerned about transparency and fiscal responsibility in our local government. I’ve noticed the mayor’s salary has seen a significant increase over the last four years, over 208%. In 2022, the mayor received a 61% the same year that the town raised taxes on the citizens and small businesses by 15%. As a part-time mayor, he makes as much as some of our full-time employees which does not seem equitable. Additionally, the fact that he has a job with the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office while receiving a town-supplied SUV while some of our workers need to work a second job is an issue that needs attention and resolution. We have to do better for our town employees.

7. Why should residents vote for you?

8. Can you describe your family?

My wife is Carolyn Huggins Hamilton, who was born and raised in Santee Circle. She’s been a dedicated small business owner in Moncks Corner for over 25 years, where she owns Hands on Therapy and passionately serves her clients. Carolyn has achieved the honor of being voted Berkeley County Massage Therapist of the Year multiple times.

Our family includes her son, Richie, who has a daughter named Cecilia (CeCi), age 10. I have two sons; Alex my oldest has a son William (Billy) who is 8 years old. My youngest son, Dallas who is engaged ( Leanne ) so we are excited about the prospect of new grandchildren in the future. We really do try to enjoy as much family time as possible.

9. Do you have a website/Facebook page you’d like to include?

I have a website https://hamiltonformayor.weebly.com/

Facebook: Thomas Hamilton for Mayor of Moncks Corner

10. Anything else worth mentioning?

When I grew up we did not have it easy and I have worked since I was young. I used to push around an old Montgomery Wards lawnmower and mow yards for $5.00.

I had a newspaper route that I would have to ride my bicycle in all kinds of weather to deliver.

I had an aunt who had a farm and she would pay me to work in the fields.

I was one who hunted soda bottles to cash them in for candy money.

When I was in high school I got up at 3 a.m. to deliver bulk newspapers and deliver them to the paper boys with my Grandfather.

I have always worked hard for everything that I have ever gotten in life and I will work just as hard to help the people of Moncks Corner if they vote for me as mayor.

My decision to run for mayor is rooted in my belief that our voices are not being heard, when citizens show up against developments that harm their neighborhoods they need to be heard.

I am in this to win so I would really appreciate your vote on November 7.

Editor’s Note: The Berkeley Observer does not endorse political candidates. However, we believe that readers have the right to know who the candidates are prior to an election. Any political candidates who would like to be highlighted in future news articles, please feel free to email The Berkeley Observer at news@berkeleyobserver.com.
