In 1978, in Dallas, Texas, electrical contracting companies mostly functioned under bureaucratic, organized leadership. William Bruce Moore saw that these companies were not able to fully develop, attract, or retain the talent needed to grow both as a company and an employee.
With a vision of forming a company in which employees with initiative could operate independently, be rewarded for creativity, and enjoy a variety of projects and challenges—in an environment where ethics and integrity were valued—Moore began putting together his team. Chosen for exceptional expertise and aptitude, he formed a company that turned merit shop electrical contracting into a top-tier entity. Soon, the WB Moore Company was lighting up buildings and cities all over the country.
In August 1989, a team relocated from Dallas to Charlotte, North Carolina to provide the electrical contracting work for the 60-story Corporate Center of NationsBank (now Bank of America), one of the largest construction projects in the history of the city.
