Our Team
Company History

A letter from our President and Founder


It’s rare for a company in our business to have a team with the tenure of ours. Some of the guys (and gals) that work at Starbrite have been with me since the very beginning. That’s more than 20 years!

The average tenure on our team is 7 years. That’s something I’m incredibly proud to share. I can’t think of better proof that Starbrite is a great place to work. The thing is, happy people do great work. So, creating a culture that promotes a happy team is important to me. We’re all in this together and pointed in the same direction, serving our clients with the same purpose.

A huge part of our cultural initiative at Starbrite involves offering our team opportunities to grow their knowledge and skills. Starbrite committed a long time ago to support our staff in their endeavors to pursue higher education and certifications in our field. As a result, we have multiple Master Electricians on the team. That’s a true benefit to the clients we serve.

Building a team of quality people is how we ensure we will always deliver quality work to our clients. Our people are our company. They are a stellar group to work with.

Growing into one of the most respected electrical contractors in Houston.


Master Electrician, Clayton (Clay) Schavrda founded Starbrite Electric, Inc. in 1996 with just 2 employees, a fresh degree from Sam Houston State University, and a dream.

Clay grew up around the construction business. His dad was a contractor and there were plenty of hot summer days Clay found himself at work on jobsites. In large part it was a class project his senior year in college that set him on the course to build a highly respected, electrical contracting company. The rest is history.

Starbrite has grown substantially through the years. Clay has meticulously set (and met) goals for growth, company culture, and service scope. With more than 20 years under his tool belt since first opening the company doors, Clay and Starbrite have served clients in the Houston and surrounding areas in both residential and commercial capacities.

Projects have gotten larger over the years and the company’s collective knowledge has gotten deeper. No doubt, time and experience translates to benefits for clients. Likewise, Starbrite has made it a point to effectively manage the advent of new technology and employ the efficiencies it has to offer.

One of the company’s biggest points of pride is its team and the long tenure the staff enjoys. The dedication of the staff and its hard work, have been the greatest fuel behind the success of the company.
