The Log Cabin Democrat is presenting a series of businesses that have a unique story to tell. To view the publication from June 15, which includes the first 50, click here.

The variety of services offered at Kordsmeier Electric in Conway is truly diverse, thanks to the experience of the employees and the commitment they have to great customer service.

Owned by Danny Joe Kordsmeier, Kordsmeier Electric is a full-service electrical company for residential and commercial customers. Services include electrical upgrades and improvements, electrical safety inspections, electrical safety maintenance, child proofing, ballast and bulb replacement, ceiling fan installation, bathroom vent light and heater installation, lamp repair and specialty lighting. In addition, the company stocks a wide range of electrical products such as light bulbs, ballasts, relays and capacitors. Just recently, the company added a lift so they can now do more exterior lighting jobs in commercial parking lots and at residences.

Danny Joe said one part of the business that might not be as well-known is motor repair and new motor sales. Kordsmeier Electric can help repair or replace motors for small equipment (such as table saws and air compressors) and for items as large as HVAC motors. "Don’t buy a new motor until you’ve talked to us," Danny Joe said.

Having a hard time finding specialty items for your home? Kordsmeier Electric can help. Inside sales at the shop on South Harkrider Street include items that are hard to find — items such as compressor switches, circuit breakers and fuses and fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs. "If we don’t keep it on hand, we know where we can get them," Danny Joe said.

Commercial work offered by Kordsmeier Electric includes all types of wiring, including conduit and machine hookups and control work. 

Danny Joe is a lifelong resident of Conway and grew up working for his father in their family business, Kordsmeier Remodeling. He said he has been working in the electrical business since 1977 and has had his master electrician license since 1993.

In 1982, Danny Joe purchased Anton’s Electric from the family of its founder, Anton Lachowsky. Danny Joe has since grown and nurtured the business into one of the top electrical companies in Central Arkansas, changing the name to Kordsmeier Electric about eight years ago. 

In addition to Danny Joe, there are three other electricians — his son Jason is one of those three. In addition, two employees are in charge of the indoor sales and repair. The electricians have combined experience of 35 years.

No matter how small or big the job is, call Kordsmeier Electric for an estimate. 

"We pride ourselves in going above and beyond to serve our customers. Your job is just as important to us as any other, and that’s how we’ll treat it." 

Kordsmeier Electric has been chosen by the Log Cabin Democrat readers as, "Best Electrician in Faulkner County" on three different occasions — in 2007, 2011 and 2012.
