Founded in Sinton, Texas in 1956 by C.W. “Clif” Coonrod, CEC was originally known as Coonrod Electric.

Since its inception in 1956, the company has diligently pursued reliability with customers and has maintained a proud heritage of providing turnkey construction, maintenance, turnaround, asset integrity, safety training and security services.

The company’s customer base includes a variety of clients throughout Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Mexico, including those involved in the oil and gas and agricultural industries. CEC corporate headquarters remain to this day in the coastal bend area of South Texas. 

Today, CEC carries on the tradition of dedication and quality customer services and has built a highly skilled and multi-disciplined team. In 2014, the Coonrod family committed to diversifying its services in the oilfield services sector under the accreditive creation of CEC Energy Services and the subsequent acquisition of CEC Corrosion Services, followed by the organic implementation of CEC SafeGuard and our two regional offices in The Permian Basin and Houston Ship Channel. 

While the company’s initial focus was supporting oilfield services, agricultural, utilities and manufacturing facilities, CEC expanded into new markets as the company grew. Regardless of the industry, CEC’s commitment to the customer and outstanding service quality remained the primary drivers to success. Today, CEC focuses its growth in five key markets.
