You could say that Villers Advanced Electric is in its second generation. Many know how we sadly lost Scott Villers, the founder of the company, in January of 2017. Scott was the best employer I have ever worked for; losing him was, and continues to be, one of those things in life that we keep saying “this just isn’t fair.” Many others miss him too, and as Denise Villers, Scott’s wife, and I worked together through 2017 and 2018, I got to see what a huge impact Scott made on people. Most importantly, Scott trusted God with everything he did. It is an honor to carry on his legacy while serving Geauga and surrounding counties where Scott left such a strong impression of honesty and integrity.

In April of 2019, Denise Villers sold the company to me and we kept everything moving right along. The company was renamed Villers Advanced Electric to signify the next step forward of building even greater things onto the great foundation laid by Scott. 

I am Eric Bacon, the new owner of the company.  I have lived in the Middlefield and Mesopotamia area all my life. I was an electrician for 5 years before working for Scott for 10 years. Now I have the responsibility and privilege of continuing the great company he started more than 30 years ago and serving the many clients and contractors that have trusted us over that time. 

I truly believe in putting relationships first, because the wealth of our communities is the people. It is our desire to take on our clients’ projects by operating in an intentional and purposeful way, with clear and reliable communication. In other words, operating as professionals and being courteous every day in the most difficult situations. With our nine electricians in the field and two employees in the office, we are achieving that goal. 

I carry our state license and we are insured and bonded. We handle any electrical project for residential, commercial jobs and we are a certified Kohler generator dealer/installer. We are investing in new equipment and work vans and with fresh eyes we are updating our online presence with a new website, Google listing, and Facebook profile. We are also under contract to buy property in Middlefield Township with plans to build a new shop. 

I firmly believe that God has great plans for this company and our valuable impact on our community. Every call, every project is an opportunity to be used by God to build people up. God has asked me to be a servant to my community, to my employees, to civil government and best of all to my family. Only with His strength can we succeed in our goals as Villers Advanced Electric. 

Villers Advanced Electric is located at 4123 Kinsman Rd. NW, in North Bloomfield. Our purpose is to serve others the way we would like to be served, and to think of others before ourselves. Find our website at https://villersadvancedelectric.com
