gary_smoak“Let me just say that the Blackwater Electric goal is to do the job right the first time. We run CAT5 and CAT6 network and telephone cable as well as fiber optics. Our Special systems include access control, CCTV, entertainment, fire and public address systems. But, it is the personal and corporate integrity to ensure a great product that sets Blackwater Electric apart. We focus on courtesy, professionalism, honesty and respect for each and every client. I take the time to see exactly what the customer needs. We actually met with one client for two months before all the details were confirmed and we were on the job site. For another job, the Quality Assurance Officer at Camp LeJeune tracked down my home number and called me after hours to tell me that we did such an outstanding job. That’s precision and the Blackwater dedication to a job well done.”
