About Us


Being an electrician is a job with great enjoyment for me as working with electricity every day is a job that takes great skill, garners respect and frequently offers instantaneous satisfaction with the results. Guaranteed Electric was established in August of 2012. Before Richard West and Tommy King Jr. came together as business partners and owners, they trained for many years in the electrical business in the field and behind the scenes. We managed another electrical company for 5 years before starting Guaranteed Electric. On any given day both Richard and Tommy are out on the job.

My grandfather owned and operated Guarantee Auto Electric in Bradenton from 1922-1972. In an effort to preserve our local roots and make it our own, we added a “D” to the company name, thus Guaranteed Electric was born.
