One of the largest electrical contractors in the US, the company focuses on design/build, engineering, and installation projects. Helix Electric's services include electrical, fiber optic cable, energy management system, emergency power system, electric fence, and voltage substation and distribution system installation. The company has offices in Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, and Guam.

Helix Electric was founded in 1985 by Russian immigrant Gary Shekhter. The company is eyeing geographic expansion beyond its current Southwestern markets. Helix has worked on projects mostly in the hospitality and government sectors in Hawaii and recently opened a new office in Texas. Its offices in Guam handle mostly government contracts.
