    "I give Basin Electric & Technology a 10! Basin Electric & Technology's technicians were very professional and resolved our issues in a timely manner. We will definitely use them again!"
  2. Chris Davis - Mid-Cities Community Church - Midland, TX
    “We’ve worked with several different AVL companies from outside of Midland, but when things go wrong, they’re not here to help. It’s amazing to have a company here locally that can provide amazing equipment and installation at reasonable prices. When we need help, they’re just right down the road instead of 400 miles away.”
  3. Landon Coleman - Immanuel Baptist Church - Odessa, TX
    "We used Basin for our recent AVL project. Our experience was great, from beginning to end. On the front end, they worked with us to get our project at the right price point without compromising quality. During install, their crew was professional and timely. On the back end, they have been available for maintenance and troubleshooting every time we have needed them. We would definitely use Basin again!"
  4. Ginger Carrell - Monahans Housing Authority - Monahans, TX
    "Basin helped us immensely by troubleshooting and correcting multiple issues with an existing camera system that was installed by another company. We were very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of everyone that worked on our project."
  5. Shellie Porras - Fitness 828 - Monahans, TX
    "Big shout out to Basin Electric & Technology for providing the amazing security system, the crispest sound system ever, and our "club" lighting in our group fitness room!"

Our Story

Theron Gamblin founded Basin Electric in 1950 and shortly thereafter in 1951, O.D. Schoolcraft and his teenage son Charles Schoolcraft began their careers with the upstart electrical company. Twelve years later, Charles' younger brothers, Mike and Eddie Schoolcraft, began their careers with the company. In 1965, Mike and Eddie left to serve their country during the Vietnam War and upon being released from duty in 1968, Eddie promptly returned to Basin Electric to continue his career. After eight years of working for Mr. Gamblin and the company, Eddie and his wife Carolyn purchased Basin Electric in 1976. It was in that same year that Eddie's nephew, Eldon Schoolcraft, began his apprenticeship at Basin Electric. After twelve years of working at Basin Electric,  Eldon and his wife Shelia purchased the company from his uncle Eddie in 1988. In 1993 Eldon's uncle, Louis Schoolcraft, came to work at Basin Electric, becoming the sixth Schoolcraft in three generations to do so. In 1994, upon his "retirement", Charles Schoolcraft returned to work for his son Eldon at Basin Electric, and remains a part of the Basin family to this day.​ Since 1951, four generations of Schoolcraft's have been a part of the Basin Electric family. Today, Basin Electric continues to serve many of the same families and businesses Mr. Gamblin served in the 1950s. However, the Gamblin and Schoolcraft families are not the only individuals responsible for the success and legacy of the company's long standing tradition of excellence and service. 

Over the years, Basin Electric's employees and their families have played an essential role in the growth of the company. In 1950, Basin Electric began with only six employees. In the depths of the economic downturn of the mid 80s, while many other companies were going out of business, Basin continued to service the Permian Basin with only three employees. Today, Basin Electric is a family of over sixty employees.

Basin Electric has been deeply rooted in West Texas for four generations and now as Basin Electric & Technology, the company is positioned to offer the same great, quality service and reliability West Texans have known in generations past

-now for generations to come!
