Our Mission

Produce a quality product at an affordable price, while exceeding the customer's expectations.

Electrol Systems uses only the best quality components, many of which we carry in stock. Our manufacturing department at Electrol Systems offers products assembled, and labeled with complete CAD drawings for our standard line as well as our custom line of control panels to help save you time and money. All of our panels undergo thorough in-shop testing and evaluation before being approved for delivery. We also offer ongoing technical support for you and your staff through our Engineering Department to assist with any questions that may arise before or after equipment installation.

Our sales staff and electrical technicians, with 35+ years experience, work with the customer during the planning stages of the project to assure that everything you need for the successful and timely completion of your project on-site. Before the panel leaves our shop, it has been thoroughly checked and tested by two separate technicians to assure quality, accuracy, and performance before it even reaches its final destination.

Electrol Systems was founded in 1983 by Art Meiners, initially started by working out of his garage.

Art is a graduate in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas Austin. After graduation, he started with Nathan Alterman Electric Co., the largest union electrical contractor in San Antonio, TX. First, as an estimator working on the project of building the University of San Antonio, then working up to the Chief Estimator and Project Manager under Richard Alterman for 6 years. He left when the market dropped in San Antonio.

He next went to work in the motor control and power products sales industry as a Sales Engineer for Cutler-Hammer (Eaton Corp.). Art worked there for 3 years, while doubling the sales each year. He worked his way up to Top Sales Engineer in the southern region for Eaton Corporation, selling the Cutler-Hammer power and control products in the Austin and San Antonio area, to Corpus Christi, Rio Grande Valley and as far as Laredo, TX.

When the market dropped again in San Antonio, Art decided that he wanted to stay in San Antonio and started Electrol Systems. ESI would be a distributor of control products and a panel shop (OEM) for the design and assembly of control panels for the utility, water and wastewater markets, all types of motor control for the commercial markets, pump control, and cooling tower control. These types of panels were not for the residential markets, therefore Art was not well know in the home, but was well known in the electrical industry for commercial markets.

One of the many projects Art helped design was the controls for the operation of the original Rattler Roller-coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas amusement park in San Antonio, TX. He also worked on many of the controls in the operation of the River Walk, including assisting with the flood gates.

Since then, ESI has become a major factor in the Department of Transportation service panels. Art was also able to work with the engineers in the Austin DOT and became the first in the history of Texas to be listed on their pre-approved list for electrical service panels.

Now about half of the interstate highways in the sate of Texas are lit by controls built by ESI, with many intersections operating with ESI panels.
