Through the years, The Fowler Company expanded their family business to include Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning, Sheet Metal and Electrical Construction Services. In 1969, due to the downturn in the oil and railroad business and business in general in Southern Illinois, Charles’s son James (Jim) Fowler, (who is the father of current owner, Greg), purchased the electrical division of The Fowler Company and started what is now known as J.F. Electric located in Edwardsville, Illinois.
Shortly after leaving Centralia, Jim’s father, Charles, retired and moved to Islamorada, Florida. His brothers closed The Fowler Company soon thereafter.
Since 1969, J.F. Electric has grown to be one of the Top 100 Privately Owned Businesses in the St. Louis Metro East Area. In 2004, Greg Fowler became president of J.F. Electric and a year later, the company moved into its current headquarters in Edwardsville, Illinois, providing even more opportunities to expand the business in all areas of electrical construction.
