Floyd began his journey into the field of electricity in 1980 with Davis Electric Constructors. While under the employment of Davis, Floyd completed a DECI apprenticeship course for 2 years through Davis and the Florida Power Corporation. While he was there, he became a nationally certified electrical journeyman through a federally regulated test given by Davis. While working for Davis, Floyd worked at power plant projects performing all phases of electrical construction.
After the power plant project was complete, Floyd moved on to Cleveland Associated Contractors. Floyd started with Cleveland as a superintendent on the Cobra Helicopter Maintenance Center at Mayport, Florida. While we has there, he was dealing with all phases of industrial electrical wiring.
After finishing the project, Cleveland sent Floyd to Charleston, South Carolina. While he was there, he served as superintendent in charge of a $2 million contract for the electrical and mechanical work on a Crane Maintenance Facility at the Naval Base. The job included installation of 400 cycle power generators and 15 kilovolt lead sheath power services.
Once the project was complete, Floyd moved to Georgetown, South Carolina, where he was in charge of a job to re-feed the main service in an active hospital so that the center of the hospital could be demolished. Once this project was complete, Floyd and his family moved back to Citrus County and he began working for several electrical contractors as a project manager and then later as a partner before starting his own electrical construction company in 1994. In 1993, Floyd passed the Registered Electrical Exam and in 1994 he passed the Registered Alarm Exam. In 2000, Floyd passed the State Certified Electrical Exam.
Since 1994, J. A. Floyd, Inc. has completed a large variety of projects, specializing in commercial electrical installations and specifically church projects. During this time, the company has done government facilities, hotels, churches, office complexes, medical offices, apartment complexes, custom homes, housing subdivisions, distribution centers, retail stores, agricultural structures, storage buildings and laboratories. In March 2001, the company purchased a 5,000 square foot building to serve as its main office.
In August 2001, Curtis returned to the company full time as Vice President after earning degrees in both Accounting and Finance from the University of Central Florida. In April 2004, Floyd passed the State Certified Class B Mechanical License. Floyd, Curtis and other partner’s formed Commercial Air Services, Inc, a commercial HVAC contractor. In May 2004, Curtis passed the State Certified Building Contractors Exam. Floyd and Curtis then partnered together to form Classic Country Construction, Inc.
In January 2007, after several successful projects, the partners of Commercial Air Services decided to focus on their individual business, so Floyd and Curtis bought out the company and in September of 2007, merged the company with J. A. Floyd, Inc. In April 2008, Classic Country Construction was merged with J. A. Floyd, Inc. In 2018, the company changed its name to JAF Construction Services, to better reflect the broad range that we offer.
Through the economic downturn that started in 2007 up through present day, J. A. Floyd, Inc., has continued to expand its boundaries and stay strong, while many other companies have been forced to shut down. We now perform residential and commercial Electric, HVAC and Alarm projects throughout the state. We have also focused on building a quality service department that services all of West Central Florida. Looking forward, we continue to work to expand our boundaries with a focus on quality work at a competitive price for years to come.
