Sponsor Spotlight - CMC Electric, Inc.

CMC Electric, Inc.:
"CMC Electric, Inc. is a full-service residential and commercial electrical contractor founded by Collinsville natives Carrie and Michael Cushing (hence the CMC). We do troubleshooting/service work, new construction, and remodeling. We also install backup generators and service parking lot lights. We offer 24-hour emergency service for your safety and peace of mind no matter the time or day."

Q. How long have you been in business?
A. Though we officially established our company in 2007, we publicly launched our business in January 2008

Q. Have you always been at this location?
A. Like most small businesses, we started working out of our home, which was in Collinsville. As we added employees and vehicles, we shared shop space until purchasing our current building. In 2015, we were very excited to finally have our office and shop all under one roof at our current location at 2714 Maryville Rd, Maryville, IL.

Q. Why do your customers choose you? What sets you apart?
A. We are a local, family-owned and operated business. We strive to provide exceptional service at affordable rates without ever being pushy or selling customers services that they don’t want or need. Although we do pride ourselves on the quality we put in new construction homes, we excel at remodel and service work. Homeowners frequently complement us on our friendly and knowledgeable service technicians that take the time to explain the work that needs to be done.

Q. What’s your biggest service/product?
A. The majority of our jobs are service calls, where customers call us out to make changes or troubleshoot a problem in their electrical system. These projects range from replacing outlets and light fixtures to tracing down loose connections. We also do a lot of electrical service replacements/upgrades where we install a new circuit breaker panel inside and outside service including new meter base and conduit.

Q. Do you have an online presence that you’d like to share with potential customers?
A. Find us on Facebook: and on the web: and you can always call us at 618.345.2008

Q. What’s your favorite book?
A. I (Carrie) have always had a hard time answering “favorite” questions. I was never much of a recreational reader until my stint working as a clerk at the Collinsville Library after college, when I was exposed to many great books. Now with young children, I’m usually reading picture books or parenting books, but The Bible is the book that contains all of the answers, therefore I would call it my favorite.


The Collinsville Library is demonstrating our gratitude to our wonderful sponsors with the "Sponsor Spotlight" blog series. Our deepest appreciation goes to these businesses whose contributions ensure that the library can present even better service to the community.
