In 1995, Jerry Metzler was working for a local electrician and work got slow. Jerry decided to take a voluntary lay-off. During that time he was approached by a local businessman who suggested that he start his own electrical business. Jerry was told that if he started his own business the local businessman would give Jerry all of his electrical business. After a lot of thought, consideration and sleepless nights Jerry decided to go for it. In January 1996, Jerry bought a van and the needed tools and went to work on his own basing his business out of his garage which filled up quickly. Jerry’s goal was to make the business successful so that he could one day pass it on to his sons.
A month into owning his own business Jerry hired his first employee (Mike Metzler) as a helper. As time went on Jerry was able to grow his clientele and expand the business. In 1999, Jerry purchased property in Green Bay and moved Metzler Electric, Inc. to its current location. Since that time Jerry has built and expanded the shop and added new employees. In 2008, Jerry’s goal turned into a reality when he passed down his business to his sons Andy and Mike. Today Metzler Electric, Inc. continues to service that first local businessman’s business that convinced Jerry to start his own business. Metzler Electric, Inc. currently has 7 trucks, employs 16 employees and continues to grow.
Hello, I’m Andy Metzler, President of Metzler Electric, Inc. I specialize in our Commercial and Industrial Divisions. I have over 25 years of experience in the electrical industry including 18 years as a Master Electrician.
I worked many years for my father in the field and saw the importance he put on his customers and the quality of work we provided them, after all our family name is on the job. When my brother and I took over the business in 2008, I was very excited to move our great company forward and build upon what our father had started.
My passion is building strong lasting relationships with my customers, employees and vendors. I enjoy the opportunity to meet new people daily and help customize their electrical needs. I work closely with owners, managers and general contractors using my creativity and design-build expertise to give my customers an electrical design tailored to their specific needs.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my children and supporting them in their extra-curricular activities. I love traveling, fishing, snowmobiling, golf and going to concerts.

I was Metzler Electric’s first full-time employee. I worked closely with my father learning the electrical trade and watching him interact closely with customers.
