Jeff has been involved in the electrical contracting industry for the majority of his life. In the early years following his father Ken Guckenberger around as he ran day-to-day operations of another well-established electrical contracting firm in the Springfield area. Completing an apprenticeship in 1982 and establishing a partnership with father Ken in the creation of JKG Electric, Inc. Jeff has been involved in all facets of the business from its inception. Through consistent and thorough project management the business has flourished for the past 29 years. Jeff maintains a hands-on approach and is personally involved, at some level, in most projects that the company has performed. I believe it is a real asset to our customers to know “where the buck stops” in the company and there is comfort in knowing that with one phone call, a satisfactory solution to any project challenge is available.
Jeff is always at the helm of project design and development for JKG. The 29 years of experience with a host of diverse clients has given Jeff a broad and comprehensive job knowledge that he brings to each and every project. With unique interest in green or sustainable electrical practices, Jeff has formed a new company to design and install photo voltaic arrays. We have seen many new avenues for this type of design opening for the company.
