FOUNDED ON QUALITY.
Vanguard Electrical was established on May 25, 2010 by Santiago Dominguez, President and CEO. Santiago, SD as colleagues refer to him, is a master electrician with over 20 years experience in the electrical construction industry. Whether he was in the office drafting plans or on site installing, Santiago recognized that the people around him wanted more in life than just a job, they wanted purpose; the vision for something greater had begun. Santiago decided to start his own company and use the challenges a business naturally presents as opportunities to mentor and develop people.
As a small start-up company, the pioneering employees that joined him in this endeavor performed many roles; the never-give-up attitude was fundamental to their new company name, Vanguard Electrical.
As a small start-up company, the pioneering employees that joined him in this endeavor performed many roles; the never-give-up attitude was fundamental to their new company name, Vanguard Electrical. With a drive to be one of the largest contractors in the Dallas–Fort Worth area, Vanguard employees lived up to the meaning of their company name. A Vanguard is the forefront of an army, a strategic and innovative group that is relied on to make way for others; and this is exactly what Santiago had envisioned, real people rising to the levels of potential the Lord had instilled into them.
Vanguard’s first office was a small, commercial electrical firm in Forney, TX with six employees and one Dodge pickup. By 2012, the initial office had been outgrown and the company moved to a larger facility located in Dallas. In 2013, Vanguard won the contract for the Dallas–Ft. Worth International Airport (Terminal B), igniting healthy growth throughout the company over the next several years. Utilizing opportunities, establishing trusting relationships, and keeping the company values as their core, in 2017 Vanguard achieved their biggest year ever. With new explosive growth came promising new doors to further Santiago’s vision to Develop, Appreciate, and Value individuals through mentorship and relationships.
GROWING TO BETTER SERVE YOU.
In January 2018, Vanguard outgrew their Dallas location and purchased a building in Addison, TX to be their new headquarters while adding more vehicles to their Service Department to better serve the DFW and surrounding regions.
