Forthright Electric Inc Company Philosophy

Terry Petty Forthright Electric Company Orlando Florida

Forthright: ADJECTIVE:

1. going straight to the point; frank; direct; outspoken: It’s sometimes difficult to be forthright and not give offense.

2. proceeding in a straight course; direct; straightforward: a forthright glance.

What’s in a name? To us … it’s our entire philosophy.

We believe in being honest and direct from the very start. Our electrical contractor estimates are based on our extensive knowledge and experience in the electrical industry. And, they include everything you will need to get the job done right the first time.

The “forthright” approach avoids quick fixes and low ball estimates that other contractors may offer to win a customer bid only to find out later it will cost twice as much and take twice as long to get the job completed.

Once we receive your go-ahead, you can expect a “forthright” approach in getting the job completed. We show up when we say we will. We complete the job when we say we will.

There are times when the unexpected does come up, and in those instances we are “forthright” and honest about its impact.

The Company We Keep

At Forthright Electric Inc., we realize our clients are our most valuable asset. That’s why we work so hard to achieve the highest level of customer service possible. This effort earns us repeat business and good old fashioned referrals, helping to keep our overhead down and pass the savings along to you.

While we are the main outsource for several large companies in the Central Florida area, here is what some of our smaller companies are saying about us. We are confident you’ll feel the same way, too.

“Forthright Electric always completes our electric contracting projects in a timely manner and at a fair price. They are honest about the work and accurate in their estimates. I would highly recommend them to others.”
