The path to business owner came quickly and naturally for Michael Mohrfeld. After helping his dad wire the lights and generators for the local annual lighted parade, Michael was hooked and knew he wanted to pursue a career in the electrical field. After graduating from Fort Madison High School, Michael went on to earn an AAS degree as an Industrial Electrician from Northeast Iowa Community College in Calmar. He then went right to work, completing his apprenticeship and getting his journeyman’s license before climbing the ranks to foreman at Menniga Electric in Burlington.
In the fall of 2005, at just 23 years old, Michael accumulated enough on the job hours to take and pass the test to become a Master Electrician. Less than a year later, in 2006, Michael opened the doors for what would become Mohrfeld Electric Inc., where he currently serves as owner and president and oversees the day to day business operations.
