Our History

The Aschinger family has been in the electrical contracting business in St. Louis for over 100 years.

Otto Aschinger CardOtto Aschinger founded O.F. Aschinger, Electrical Contractor in 1912, starting the business by selling appliances and installing the electrical service needed to power them.

In 1939, Otto left for the shipyards of California, and his son, O. Francis Aschinger, founded Aschinger Electric Company in 1940. He grew his business and operated it until his death in 1978.
In 1978, his sons Eric, Jack and Keith Aschinger, along with their mother Zdena, took over the operation and ownership of the business. Eric, a P.E. in electrical engineering, succeeded his parents as President of Aschinger. Through the 1970’s until today, Aschinger grew as a commercial, industrial and institutional electrical contractor, concentrating on design/build construction and electrical service.
Aschinger Electric is now in its fourth generation of family ownership and leadership. Emily Martin serves as President of Aschinger Electric, and has expanded the company to provide alternative energy and NFPA-70E services.
“Our goal is to create lifetime partnerships with our clients, by being a proactive contractor and service provider. We will continue to be a market leader, helping our clients operate their businesses efficiently and safely,” said Martin.

  • “Over my career I have had the pleasure of working with a handful of craft workers who possess a truly advanced set of talents and knowledge, and I would certainly put Jeff in this category. We all rely heavily on our key field supervisors like Jeff and I think sometimes take their superior performance for granted. That is why I wanted to take the time to make you and your organization aware of the valuable asset that Jeff is to Aschinger Electric.”

  • “Aschinger Electric completed the installation of the pole light on the John Carrol Parking Lot for the Mural painting on the exterior wall of McGannon Hall. It looks great, Aschinger Electric did a wonderful job.”

  • “I just received a phone call from Brian Sword at Gander Mountain to tell me how happy he is with the Fenton install. Please let Aschinger know that we appreciate their efforts. Nothing better than getting this type of call, especially with the eyes on this one. This is a team effort from design, engineering and implementation to make this happen.”

     

     

     

     

  • “Monte took the time to fully explain the current situation to me so I could pass along the details to Ameren. He was extremely patient as I took notes…Monte was so helpful and friendly & I just want to let you all know!”

  • “Aschinger delivered a beautifully designed and installed process control network…. A truly professional installation leveraging 21st century technology that will reliably support our automation efforts for the next 20 years.”

  • “Our diagrams were a hodgepodge of pieces.  Aschinger looked at our building and gave us a complete set of one line diagrams.  Before, when we had an issue we could grab the pieces but we weren’t even sure if they were right.  Another good thing was their analysis and maintenance recommendations.”
