Who we are.
Teklar started off in 1997 as an electrical service and maintenance company and quickly got recognized in the hospitality industry, Teklar grew to service over 80% of the downtowns core hospitality venues. Due to our success and reputation, we became the go-to contractor for all maintenance needs, including adding to our services plumbing, drywall repairs, painting, refrigeration, HVAC, overall general maintenance repairs, etc.
In 2003, we expanded our company to include commercial renovations which eventually led to full general contracting which allowed us to be proudly apart of the build of many hospitality venues like the Standard nightclub. Our reputation grew and we added the Cactus Clubs and the Donnelly Group to our client list which led to the maintenance of all venues and the renovation of The Granville Room, Library Square Public House, The Republic and the full build of the Lamplighter Public house, The Oxford Public house and Pop Opera Nightclub.
In 2015 our principle owner decided we had to go back to our roots of electrical contracting and property services and have continued our growth and solid reputation ever since. We would be extremely proud to add your company and your projects to our list of accomplishments!
