In 1967 Roger Burke had an idea to create an Electrical Contractors business that would top everyone else. Service, quality, friendliness and the will to be the best were the driving factors in the onset of this business. He joined forces with Charles L. Williams and started Art-O-Lite Electric opening up for business with great enthusiasm!

Through the years Art-O-Lite has survived the ups and downs of our economy and has still come out on top as the Quad Cities Electrical Contractor with the future in mind. No job has ever been too big or small!

Roger Burke has since passed away. Charles Williams has retired and now Brad Williams and Scott Williams are carrying the business into the future.

We still uphold our traditions and qualities that Roger and Charles brought into being in 1967 and will still be offering the best service now and in the future.
