About Colter Electric Co.

Colter Electric is a 3rd generation family business that was started by DJ Colter and Bill Chappell in 1945. Colter Electric is a small, sound, family-owned, family-oriented business today. Its size and stability permit it to be agile, adaptable, flexible and innovative. We pride ourselves on our professional yet familial culture. People are important at Colter Electric; that includes everyone – our customers, employees, family, community and business partners.

Colter Electric has a history of industry and community involvement, as well as personal and professional development. It began with DJ who served as Director on the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce Board, founding member and President of the Piedmont Christian Credit Union, and held many other seats on various boards. Wayne and Scott have embraced and built on that legacy.
