Harvey Jr. & Harvey III

In 1953 Harvey Scatena Sr. obtained his state contractors’ license and opened the doors to what has now become a third-generation electrical contracting business. Initially the company focused on residential wiring, remodeling and new home construction. A solid business relationship was built with a number of general contractors which provided a steady flow of residential projects. By the mid-1960’s several commercial companies relied on our services.

By the late 1970’s Harvey Electric moved to a larger location in Castro Valley and a newly remodeled office. Harvey Scatena Jr. took over ownership of the company in 1980. He realigned the focus on commercial and industrial clients and installed the company’s first computer system. The company was renamed Harvey Scat Electric and many long term associations were established with building contractors.

The current owner, Harvey Scatena III, joined the firm in 1990, beginning as an apprentice and learning what it takes to run a contracting operation from its foundation. In 1998, he began successorship of the family business, restored the company name back to Harvey Electric and is defining the outlook of the company on the next generation.

One thing has not changed in the 60+ years: the company’s focus of defining integrity and customer satisfaction as an unsurpassable goal.
