Darryl and Dorene Mollenhauer, owners of Mike’s Electric, have been partners in life for over 45 years, and have together managed Mike’s Electric since 2010. Darryl is involved in running the day-to-day operations and Dorene handles HR and Corporate paperwork for the company.
In the economic crash of 2008 Darryl was caught in the onslaught of corporate layoffs. Being 60 years old, it wasn’t a matter of just finding another job, the Mollenhauer’s were ready for a change that would take them into the next phase of life. With their business knowledge and over 60 years combined experience in the business world, they decided to research the option of purchasing or starting a business. They spent a year doing their due diligence on the options. In early 2010 they discovered that Mike’s Electric was coming up for sale. Mike’s had been a family owned business since 1959 and had a great service reputation in the community. In May of 2010, the couple formed Mollenhauer Enterprises, Inc. and in July of 2010 became the third family to own Mike’s Electric, with the official title being Mollenhauer Enterprises, Inc. dba Mike’s Electric.
Mike’s Electric provides both commercial and residential electric support throughout the Portland Metro area. Each member of our service team is an efficient and courteous licensed professional; ready to take care of their customer’s electrical needs, no matter how big or small the project. From a single outlet installation to a complete house rewiring, we ensure all work is done safely, in a timely manner and complies with all the applicable electrical codes.
When asked what one unique aspect of the business is that sets them apart, Dorene and Darryl said, “We hope it is our customer service. There is nothing more important to us than taking care of our employees and our customers. We want to build longevity in our relationships with people and the communities they live in. We want to be their community electrician. Much of our work is by word of mouth and repeat customers. We like it that way and are very excited about growing the families we serve.”
Dorene and Darryl raised three kids in Beaverton. They were den and pack leaders for scouts, coaches for sport teams, volunteers at the schools, church and community/neighborhood events. Darryl was even Chair of the Beaverton Library Board when they were building the new library on 5th. “Family and community have always been high priorities for us and we bring that same set of morals and values to the work we do at Mike’s Electric.”
