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 Monroe:
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.

Ana de Armas' NC-17 Marilyn Monroe Movie Praised By Original Author

Blonde author Joyce Carol Oates praises Netflix's NC-17-rated Marilyn Monroe biopic starring Ana de Armas.

Blonde author Joyce Carol Oates praises Netflix's NC-17-rated Marilyn Monroe biopic starring Ana de Armas. Oates published the fictionalized biography in 2000, which traces the life of Norma Jeane Baker, aka Marilyn Monroe, from a small-town American girl to a Hollywood starlet, encompassing the many trials and tribulations of that journey. Director Andrew Dominik took on the new adaptation of Blonde for Netflix, which is the first of their original content to garner an NC-17 rating.

CBS adapted Blonde in 2001 as a mini-series, which starred Poppy Montgomery as Monroe, which was a less controversial take on Oates' material than what Dominik has produced. The director has been vocal about the difficulty in delivering the film to Netflix with his vision intact, although he has praised the streamer for standing by his take on Blonde, rather than having him edit it down to an R-rating. Dominik has said that "There’s something in it to offend everyone" in Blonde and has stood by the rating, even though he disagrees with it, saying, "It’s an NC-17 movie about Marilyn Monroe, it’s kind of what you want, right?"

Oates has now seen Dominik's cut of Blonde and given her reaction to it (via Collider), saying that she believes the director "succeeded" in bringing her novel to life faithfully. She went on to say that she believes the director "immersed himself" in the perspective of Marilyn Monroe, avoiding the pitfalls of showing her life from the outside looking in. At over 700 pages, the novel is one of Oates' most ambitious works, which was also nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and a daunting task to adapt into a feature-length film, but it appears Dominik pulled it off. Here's her quote:

Andrew Dominik is a very brilliant director. I think he succeeded in showing the experience of Norma Jeane Baker from her perspective, rather than see it from the outside, the male gaze looking at a woman. He immersed himself in her perspective.

The author went on to praise Ana de Armas' performance in Blonde, saying that she endured roughly four hours of make-up to be transformed into the physical version of Marilyn Monroe. Oates likens the transformations of the cast as so accurate that it's like "they don’t really exist" as actors, presumably more like historical figures. She praises the "wonderful" talent of de Armas and says that watching her onscreen after her transformation into the character is "...like a fantastic image, but to make it a livelihood is to endure a good deal of anguish.”

Marilyn Monroe remains a cultural icon to this day, but much of her history is shrouded in her Hollywood image, rather than the realities of her journey to becoming a household name, which wasn't as easy, fair, or lucrative as one might think, especially during her era. A fascinating and tragic tale, the life of Marilyn Monroe will no doubt be revitalized with Dominik's film, which is already fraught with controversy over the NC-17 rating and long delays due to putting the film together in a way that satisfied both Dominik and Netflix. Having the author's approval can surely help entice more viewers to watch the film, but endorsements only go so far and it will be interesting to see the overall reception of the film when Blonde reaches Netflix subscribers in September.

Netflix is close to releasing its first produced NC 17-rated movie, Blonde. This NC 17 movie on Netflix is a Marilyn Monroe biopic starring Ana de Armas as the titular female. Usually, this would mean box office poison, but in the streaming era, this is not as big of a deal, but still worthy of headlines. Makes you wonder if this was a case of positive/negative publicity for Netflix.

What is an NC 17 rating? NC 17 is the most restrictive rating the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) can put forth. Originating in 1990 with Henry and June (more on that later), NC 17 means that no one 17 or under is allowed entrance to the film.

The MPAA rating did rankle some ankles for Netflix management, and some fans were miffed that director Andrew Dominik deigned to defend the film.

Same energy as "If you don't like my movie then it's because you don't understand it"

— Jamie (@JamJamGaGa) February 11, 2022

Based on Joyce Carol Oates’ highly fictionalized novel of the same name, Blonde likely will show sexual content, though it’s hard to imagine the movie is anywhere near as gratuitous and blood-soaked as shows like Game of Thrones. Consider also that Netflix hasn’t asked the director to remove any content to appeal for a lower rating, like many studio predecessors asked moviemakers to do.

For fans of edgy films, the rating may be encouraging. Some of the best movies of the past 50 years, including Casino and South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut originally earned the NC 17 designation. Though critically acclaimed, some movies rated NC 17 remain for adults only. A few of these films only make a few cuts that allowed the films to be screened in theaters as R-rated. Of course, an NC 17 label in no way guarantees quality, but the following eight films earned critical reputations for their raw and (almost) unrestricted content despite their original restrictive ratings.

Readers may be surprised to learn that the NC 17 rating is a product of the 1990s, invented for the steamy Henry & June.

Fred Ward plays author Henry Miller, Uma Thurman plays wife June, and a game Maria de Medeiros plays French writer Anaïs Nin in the trio’s infamous romantic triangle post-publication of the oft-banned novel, Tropic of Cancer.

Though the intimate portrayals are tame by today’s standards, the film remains a fun, fascinating romp through the literary past. Speaking of the past, Henry & June is unavailable to stream, likely because of its onerous rating.

Ever since the MPAA began giving ratings in 1968, there’s been little rhyme or reason to distinguishing between what constitutes the difference between R and NC 17. Though the arbitrary measure means less in the streaming era, major theaters will still not screen NC 17 movies, despite cultural standards becoming significantly more liberal in the last 50 years. It’s understandable to skip some movies because of content. Movie ratings, however, give few clues as to how gratuitous that content may be.

Marilyn Monroe is still very much in demand nearly 60 years after her death at age 36.

A figure-hugging embellished gown worn by the late Hollywood star in her 1954 film "There’s No Business Like Show Business" was a top-selling item at an auction hosted by Julien’s Auctions and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). The costume, designed by William Travilla, had a winning bid of $218,750, which was well over its estimate of $80,000.

A pair of sequin embellished leotard costumes worn by Monroe and her co-star Jane Russell in the 1953 film "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" also had a final winning bid of $102,400.

Other Monroe memorabilia that sold included: a sheet of Monroe's personal notes from her acting classes with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio in New York ($18,750); a pair of beige heels ($11,520); a pair of earrings used in promotional photos for 1953’s "How to Marry a Millionaire" ($81,250); a 19th century-style bodice worn for a 1956 Jack Cardiff photo session ($25,600); a black velvet studio evening gown from 1950’s "The Fireball" ($43,750); a custom-made pale pink silk blouse worn in 1960’s "Let's Make Love" ($37,500); and more.

"We at TCM know how essential classic film remains to fans, and this auction proved the desire to own a piece of history is stronger than ever," Pola Changnon, general manager of TCM, told FOX Business on Wednesday. "Marilyn Monroe is still turning heads to this day, with several artifacts that she wore fetching more than $500,000. This was a thrilling start to TCM’s partnership with Julien’s Auctions."

The auction, titled "Hollywood Legends," lasted for four days and took place in Beverly Hills, California, and online. It was originally announced in May.

Monroe has been making headlines in 2022.

Earlier this year, Andy Warhol’s "Shot Sage Blue Marilyn" sold for a cool $195 million, making the iconic portrait the most expensive work by a U.S. artist ever sold at auction. It’s also the most expensive piece from the 20th century ever auctioned, according to Christie’s auction house in New York, where the sale took place.

Christie’s said an unnamed buyer made the purchase. When the auction was announced earlier this year, Christie's estimated it could go for up to $200 million.

For the annual Met Gala held on the first Monday of May, Kim Kardashian wore the same nude dress Monroe rocked as she sang "Happy Birthday" to President John F. Kennedy in 1962. That dress was sold at auction in 2016 to Ripley’s Believe It or Not for nearly $5 million.

In late April, Netflix released a new documentary, "The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes," about the circumstances surrounding her death in 1962.

Ana de Armas is also playing a fictionalized version of Monroe for a Netflix film titled "Blonde," which earned an NC-17 rating. The trailer debuted in June and the movie is set to premiere Sept. 23.

SALISBURY — An industrious 8-year-old girl’s bracelet business is helping cats in the Carolinas find homes, one piece of jewelry at a time.

After raising $521 in a week, the profits were presented to Salisbury’s PetSmart on Friday to sponsor several cats for families who could not afford adoption fees.

Brenna Edwards of Monroe started her bracelet-making business just before the summer after her cousin introduced her to the world of jewelry making, specifically earrings. Since her cousin sold earrings, Edwards decided to have a shop with custom-made bracelets using clay beads and silver charms to share with her friends and family.

Each bracelet costs $3, but she wanted to set aside $1 from each sale for donation to the Rowan County cat rescue. Her mother, Lauren Edwards, is a part of Carolina Sanctuary and Rescue, a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding homes for cats. The family has been a foster home for cats in the Monroe area, but they also have three cats of their own named Bubbles, Callie and Nelson.

To Brenna’s delight, her bracelet business has expanded both across and outside of the state. Last month, she received orders from New Hampshire and Virginia as well as all across North Carolina.

“She was jumping up and down when she received all those orders, especially the one from New Hampshire, ” her mother said. “We posted about her bracelets on our adoption pages and the rescue’s page and it got shared. Everybody was just amazed that she was doing it, so she got lots of orders.”

Leading up to PetSmart Charities’ adoption event in Salisbury on July 16, Brenna crafted all week and made 42 bracelets to sell at the event, ranging from cat-themed trinkets to custom-designed themes per the request of the customer. By the time it was over, she had sold out of all she had. She hopes that every dollar she made that Saturday and the week before will help families adopt a cat, since the donated funds will go toward adoption fees that can range from $80 to $100. Proceeds raised at future events will also be donated to cat charities.

The favorite bracelet she made was one with one purple and pink beads with a silver cat charm.

Brenna’s next venture for her bracelet business includes being a vendor at the Fairview Fall Festival in Monroe on Oct. 6. She also continues to take orders that can be placed by messaging the Bracelets by Brenna Facebook page, texting 704-490-1145 or emailing ebrenna119@gmail.com.

Global Chemical Manufacturer Dymax Will Create 227 Jobs in Union County Company will invest $46.7 million in new facilities in Monroe

Dymax Corporation, a global chemical and plastics manufacturer, will open a new manufacturing center and create 227 jobs in Union County, Governor Roy Cooper announced today. The company will invest $46.7 million in the City of Monroe.“Manufacturers like Dymax chose North Carolina and Union County because we are doing the right things to help them and their employees be successful,” said Governor Cooper. “Our education and workforce development systems, transportation networks, and overall business climate place our ...

Dymax Corporation, a global chemical and plastics manufacturer, will open a new manufacturing center and create 227 jobs in Union County, Governor Roy Cooper announced today. The company will invest $46.7 million in the City of Monroe.

“Manufacturers like Dymax chose North Carolina and Union County because we are doing the right things to help them and their employees be successful,” said Governor Cooper. “Our education and workforce development systems, transportation networks, and overall business climate place our state at the top of the list for companies large and small.”

Founded in 1980, Dymax Corporation serves original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the medical, electronics, aerospace, and automotive sectors, among several others. The company pioneered the manufacture of broad-spectrum, light-curable products like adhesives and coatings, as well as a variety of plastics and related equipment. The company’s products are used in a wide range of goods across multiple industries, including medical catheters, electric vehicle batteries, and consumer electronics circuit boards. The company’s project in Monroe will establish a manufacturing, warehouse, and office space of more than 100,000 square feet.

“Dymax is experiencing steady and significant growth, and our expansion from our Northeast roots into North Carolina opens doors to outstanding labor, technical and logistic resources,” said Aaron Mambrino, President of Dymax North America. “The combination of available resources and solid support from state and local officials made North Carolina a great choice.”

“We’re pleased to welcome a new manufacturer to North Carolina,” said Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders. “We’re the top state for manufacturing in the Southeast, thanks to companies like Dymax that understand and appreciate our state’s commitment to maintaining a large and well-trained workforce.”

The North Carolina Department of Commerce led the state’s support for the company during its site evaluation and decision-making process.

Although wages will vary depending on position, the average salary for all the new positions will be $66,343, which is greater than the current average wage in Union County of $49,129. The community will see more than $15 million enter its economy from the project’s payroll impact, each and every year.

Dymax Corporation’s project in North Carolina will be facilitated, in part, by a Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) approved by the state’s Economic Investment Committee earlier today. Over the course of the 12-year term of this grant, the project is estimated to grow the state’s economy by $933 million. Using a formula that takes into account the new tax revenues generated by the new jobs, the JDIG agreement authorizes the potential reimbursement to the company of up to $1,247,250, spread over 12 years. State payments only occur following performance verification by the departments of Commerce and Revenue that the company has met its incremental job creation and investment targets. JDIG projects result in positive net tax revenue to the state treasury, even after taking into consideration the grant’s reimbursement payments to a given company.

“It’s a great day for Union County, Monroe, and the entire state as we welcome these new jobs to our area,” said N.C. Senator Todd Johnson. “North Carolina offers one of the best business climates in the world and companies like Dymax appreciate everything we provide to help companies succeed in our state.”

“I’m proud of the people and organizations who worked behind the scenes to make today’s announcement possible,” said N.C. Representative Dean Arp. “Our community will continue to support Dymax and their new employees as the company begins its operations in our state. I have no doubt they will be very pleased with their decision to locate this new facility in Monroe.”

Partnering with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina on this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, the North Carolina Department of Revenue, Union County, the City of Monroe and Monroe-Union County Economic Development.
