About Us

The late Carmine Joseph Colangelo originally started C&T Electric Corporation in 1973 as an electrical contracting company. His vision was for a family owned and operated business and for the last 50 years, we have maintained that.

In 1980 his son, Joseph Carmine Colangelo, who is now President and owner of the company, joined his father at C&T. In that time, Joe’s wife Lisa and his son Carmine have also joined the company, maintaining a family business through multiple generations.
