Broadway Electric, Inc. was founded in 1984 on Chicago's north side, with the mission to provide a full range of industry-leading electrical solutions and innovations, executed in a thorough, professional manner by industry-leading experts.

This mission continues to be fulfilled today because of the vision and dedication of BEI's co-founder, President and CEO John R. Oehler. John’s personal dedication and commitment to each and every BEI project ensures the company's continued success.

John Oehler’s extensive electrical management credentials are rivaled only by his entrepreneurial spirit. John leads the BEI team, which includes Estimating, Project Management, Construction, Service, Administrative, and Executive staff.

The company moved its corporate office to Elk Grove Village, Illinois in 2004. The larger facility houses a larger staff and puts us in better reach of our clients spread throughout the metropolitan Chicago area and beyond. It also affords us with extensive storage space available for equipment required on projects, both in our Construction and Service divisions.

Our professional affiliations include:

  • ASA Chicago (American Subcontractors Association)
  • HACIA (Hispanic American Construction Industry Association)

“Broadway Electric Inc. is committed to developing and managing diverse electrical work opportunities in the public and private sectors by establishing long lasting partnerships with customers through the professional performance of all BEI team members.”
