When people said they’d have a bright future, they weren’t kidding.

Seth and Stephanie Schramm established Schramm Electric in 2008. In the beginning, they ran the company out of their home while keeping their regular jobs. Seth went full-time first once the business got off the ground and Stephanie followed a year later. In February, 2013 they opened the Schramm Electric office on Lakeport Avenue. With continued growth and a need for more space in May, 2014 Schramm Electric transitioned into a new office and warehouse on Line Drive.

Today the ambitious young company has a staff of full-time electricians and is wired into some of the biggest jobs in town. Their reputation for solid relationships, quality customer service and deep knowledge of the industry keeps clients coming back and continually builds new ones.

Seth: With nearly 20 years of expertise as an electrician, Seth is a full service Certified Master Electrician with licenses in Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. Seth is a military veteran, a football fan and the owner of Schramm Electric.

Stephanie: Stephanie holds a degree in business from Iowa State and works hard to keep Schramm Electric organized and efficient. She’s the friendly voice answering the phone and the person who stays on top of every job. Stephanie is a proud football mom and helps run Schramm Electric with her husband Seth.

Our Story

Seth was first exposed to basic electrical circuitry and components in the US Navy working on board naval ships. Upon completion of active duty, he entered the five-year electrical apprenticeship to learn the trade. Looking to further his skill set, he was chosen as an electrical project manager for a large beef processing facility overseeing continuous upgrades at three facilities working with numerous electrical contractors and hundreds of electricians on various projects.

He saw the need for a local electrical contractor with the ability to oversee projects with the customer’s goals in mind and a commitment to providing projects on time, on budget and up to code.

Seth’s wife, a business major from Iowa State, was pregnant with their third son and together they started laying the foundation of what would become Schramm Electric. Starting with obtaining their licenses, registering with State and local municipalities, insurance and bonding. They started very small, a used minivan & basic tools.

The past ten years have been exciting and rewarding to Schramm Electric, now with multiple employees, service vehicles, equipment, and a new office they are further solidifying their relationships and commitment to their customers.
