About Us

Phillips Southern Electric Co.

In the Beginning...

In 1961 Henry Phillips Jr. and his father Henry Senior started a company called Southern Electric. Two years later, they incorporated, forging today’s Phillips Southern Electric (PSE). Committed to excellence the father and son won contracts, delivered on promises, and built the PSE into a statewide presence known for innovation, customer service, and quality work.


Ongoing Responsibility and Ingenuity...

In the early 80’s, a second generation of leadership continued the tradition of industrial and commercial excellence. This generation made its mark, perfecting the process of building traffic signals and providing a new era of highway lighting.



Our Promise to You: Whatever your needs, we will build it, fix it, install it, or maintain it with pride and integrity.

Honoring Our Roots and Looking to the Future...

Our past gives us pride. PSE accomplishments include the KG&E "Light the Night" Program, the Western Electric Plant, multiple Medicenter Complexes, and the service contract for St. Francis Regional Medical Center.

Our future will be even brighter. Twin commitments to quality work and customer satisfaction will guide PSE as we continue our endeavors as an industry leader.
