Our Story

In 1989, after graduating from the 4-year apprentice program at the International Electrical Contractors Association of America, and 8 years of working in the field, Jeff Unger Sr. launched Unger Electric. Working out of his truck with no employees, Unger Sr. slowly took on small commercial projects and built a steady client base that trusted his dependable work.

As the business grew, Unger Sr. added employees to handle the increased demand. The company also added licenses in 6 states, began working on projects across the entire southeast U.S., and offered a helping hand in both New Orleans and Haiti when disaster struck.

The 1990s provided significant growth opportunities, and the business grew to over 35 employees in the field.

By staying lean in the office, Unger Electric survived the market’s downturn in 2008, and quickly rebounded. Unger Sr. then brought on his two sons – Jeff Unger Jr., and Justin Unger. The sons’ current management of the financial, administrative, and estimating functions has allowed Unger Sr. to continue to develop and grow the business.

Hiring of an experienced management team has enabled Unger Electric to now handle commercial electrical projects up to $1 million as well as the related servicing of such accounts – assisted living facilities and large property management accounts included.

Jeff Unger Sr and his sons have always been, and always will be, family-oriented people. It is that same family-oriented trait that drives the company’s closely-knit team – a team where employees push each other, yet have each other’s back.

Unger Electric LLC has developed into a first-class operation, and looks forward to serving the commercial electrical industry for many years and generations to come. Unger-Water Power Solutions LLC was formed to target the unique challenges inherit with temporary electrical power for marinasdisaster recovery, festivals and other outdoor events

Jeff Unger Sr.
Jeff Unger Sr.Founder & Director of Business Development
He started out in the electrical field in 1979 by working after school and cleaning up the warehouse at Belco Electric. Needing extra cash, he started helping on small commercial jobs. Eventually, he went to work for Rhyne Electric Inc. in Decatur Georgia. Harold Rhyne was a member of the International Electrical Contractors Association so he enrolled in the 4-year program to become a journeyman electrician. After graduating, he sat for the State of Georgia’s Unrestricted Masters Exam and passed. Many nights and weekends of residential and commercial electrical jobs later, Jeff Sr. incorporated his own company and named it Realty Electric. Since that time, realty electric was renamed Unger Electric and has grown to 20 plus employees including his sons Jeff Jr. and Justin.

Jeff Sr. is committed to supplying his clients with the best customer service, craftsmanship, safety and reliability on expects in today’s fast paced need it done yesterday environment.

Jeff Unger Jr.
Jeff Unger Jr.VP of Finance & Administration
Jeff Unger Jr. is the General Manager of Unger Electric, LLC. He graduated in 2005 from Heritage High School at the top of his class. He immediately went to work in the commercial electrical field; since he grew up in a family of electricians, the decision to pursue the electrical industry just made sense.

After working as an electrician’s apprentice in the field for several years, he decided he wanted to learn how the projects he was installing were estimated. He began working at Unger Electric and within a few short years he was promoted to Chief Estimator and then eventually to Project Manager at the 25-year family owned and operated business.

As the company changed and grew into a more forward thinking business model, there was a need for someone to implement fair company policies and procedures as well as handle their growing financial management needs. With mentoring from an outsourced business development team while studying business management and accounting; Jeff Jr. now plays a key role in helping Unger Electric continue its success story.

Jeff lives at home in Tucker, GA with his wife Kelsey and his dog Daisy. He enjoys outdoor recreation, hunting, fishing, music, traveling and cooking. Jeff also enjoys training for the annual Peachtree Road Race.

Justin M. Unger
Justin M. UngerVP & Estimating Dept Mgr
Being born near the same time that his father’s company was founded, it is safe to say that Justin has been around the electrical trade his entire life. For the past seven years he has gained experience both in the field and managing the estimating department. His knowledge and expertise of each aspect of the trade have grown simultaneously. From having boots on the ground and learning how to physically install at daybreak, to learning how to competitively price the next Unger Electric installation late into the evening.

Justin takes a personal interest in each job he estimates and project manages, seeing to it that projects are run efficiently, punctually, and to the best quality possible. He is devoted to the fact that customer satisfaction is priority.
