C.O. Christian then began to provide engineering and design in-house which led to significant growth to the company. Shortly after, as buildings demanded more intricate communication systems, Herring Technology was created as a DBA to broaden our services and has since expanded into the camera security industry as well.

Since 1967, C.O. Christian has completed hundreds of millions of dollars of work and has built a strong reputation as one of the most dependable electrical contractors in the Middle Tennessee area. With great coherence between all employees, we continue to provide outstanding results to building owners and contractors.
