With 12 years of electrical experience and former partner, Kenneth Simmons, Joe Miller started an equal partnership specializing in wiring of new homes, customized lighting systems, and service calls targeting the high-end residential market in the central Mississippi area.
Post 9/11, shift of business due to the shut down of the stock market. Future projects nixed, but the company maintained portfolio of ongoing projects. After completion of ongoing projects, high-end residential projects declined. Mr. Miller sought home builders constructing spec homes to provide electrical services to supplement income.
Due to the decline to high-end customers, Mr. Miller severed his partnership with Mr. Simmons by buying out his percentage of ownership.
The housing market crash warranted another shift of business. Mr. Miller obtained an electrical Certificate of Responsibility to bid on larger electrical and light commercial projects.
Mr. Miller obtained partial ownership in disabled veteran-owned BB General Contractors (BBGC) before expanding ElectricWorks, Inc. to include construction. The most notable project completed during this partnership was a renovation at the Dr A H McCoy Federal Building in downtown Jackson.
In July 2012, ElectricWorks, Inc. obtained a Mississippi General Contractors License along with Road and Bridge License in conjunction with the existing Electrical License, officially transforming the company in the pursuit of commercial projects and the maintenance of electrical service contracts. Completed projects include commercial work at the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority (JMAA), Midtown Housing, Millsaps Housing, Grenada Housing, and other municipalities.
Presently, ElectricWorks, Inc. has become a 98% commercial electrical firm.
ElectricWorks, Inc. received the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) Federal Small Business Certification
ElectricWorks, Inc. formed a joint venture Diversified Construction Services, Inc. known as EW-DCS, Inc. Notable completed projects by this venture include restroom renovations at the east and west concourse and TSA renovations at the JMAA.
In 2019, ElectricWorks, Inc. became a U.S. General Service Administration (GSA) petition contractor increasing construction revenue and maintaining an aggressive commercial electrical posture.

"The ElectricWorks Inc. team has been a tremendous help in assisting the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority's Facilities Department with closing some of our urgent open building electric work requests over the past year. They have also been good team players on the construction services side in providing excellent workmanship and customer services on capital projects at Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport. The President, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, and team members provide excellent customer service and are a joy to work. I would recommend them to any future residential or commercial clients"./p>
