Our Story

It all started with the prayers of Jim DeJong, Derrick Potter, and their families. They sought God’s will in forming a partnership: DeJong & Potter Electric. In response, God said “Go”. In the spring of 2002, Derrick Potter made the jump, initially wiring the houses of those who were willing to put their trust in a startup. This early trust was well-placed, as the quality of the work quickly established a solid reputation.

By the fall of 2002, Jim DeJong had secured enough business to join Derrick full-time. As news of their reliability and efficiency spread, the business expanded. Entering the commercial electrical sector offered new opportunities, and commercial clients soon discovered that their trust in Jim and Derrick was well-founded, as DeJong & Potter Electric consistently delivered.

This reputation of quality and timeliness has made DeJong & Potter Electric the go-to team for many general contractors in West Michigan as well as national account general contractors across America. The team at DeJong & Potter Electric services entry-level to high-end homes, multi-family projects, retail spaces in malls, light industrial buildings, large commercial spec and build-to-suit buildings.  

We are grateful for every minute and thank God for the opportunity to serve our many satisfied customers, and all those who have been a part of our growth and success.
