Geddings Electrical and Mechanical LLC Helping Keep the Shipping Industry Moving


Geddings Electrical and Mechanical LLC is a growing company specializing in the conveyor and building maintenance industry.

Founded in 2008 by husband and wife Chris and Samantha Geddings, Geddings Electrical and Mechanical LLC is certified and licensed to perform all electrical and mechanical duties. Initially they addressed residential and commercial needs, before concentrating on commercial conveyors.

Geddings currently has several industrial contracts to perform conveyor installation, service and repair, preventative maintenance services, electrical services and facility maintenance and repairs. They maintain several buildings in Georgia and South Carolina, with an additional building slated for 2023.

They are on call seven days a week, 24 hours a day as needed, in order to maintain industrial conveyor belt systems in multiple facilities in Georgia and South Carolina.

Keeping Everything Running Smoothly

You may not know their name, or even understand what they do, but they are the folks that keep everything running smoothly. If the conveyor system breaks down, the system is on hold and for most businesses, being “on hold” for very long is unacceptable.

When there is mechanical or electrical trouble, Geddings is there to fix the problem. From changing out bolts to addressing a maintenance issue, they are on the job.

We hear the words “supply chain” but rarely do we know how it actually works. Packages and other cargo go through several stages before arriving at their final destinations. Conveyor technology is the industry standard because it is extremely functional and produces the results businesses want- speed and accuracy.

But like all mechanical and electrical systems, things break down. That’s where Geddings comes in, seven days a week, night, and day. They service the facility and keep the system moving.

Increasing Business

Geddings Electrical and Mechanical LLC is interested in increasing their conveyor and building maintenance business. “We can service anything with conveyors,” says Chris, “and we have room to grow, while fulfilling our current commitments.”

They are currently hiring to expand their crew for varied positions. “We have employees who are handy with whatever we throw at them for that day,” says Samantha. “Some weld, some know plumbing, and some do construction work. We have electrical workers who save the day when the facility is hot and needs their fans running or when the early morning shifts need extra lights hung to stock the trucks with all your packages.”

They have people who just clean the machines and that’s truly a dirty job, but everyone has something they prefer doing and we have those who can do it all. We are small but each of us are talented in our own ways.”

Geddings is licensed and insured and takes all safety precautions. They provide work trucks, gas cards and some tools. New hires must have a valid driver’s license and pass a hair follicle test.

Base pay ranges from $15-$30 dependent on skills and experience. The company offers health insurance, Aflac, Global, yearly bonuses, a raise after 90 days, some paid holidays and plans to add a 401K in the near future. OSHA certification training or forklift certificate training is a plus.

Family Life

Chris is a South Carolina native and Samantha, originally from Indiana, has been here since she was eight years old. She laughs, “I met my Chris when I was 14 and he was 16 and we’ve been annoying each other on a daily basis ever since! We’ve been together 30 great years and we wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Truly a family business, Samantha says husband Chris “is the main force and I help out.” For Chris, owning his business and working out of his shop is a dream come true. They have a seven year old son, Karson, and they love going to the beach or the lake as a family. Karson says he wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps and eventually join the family business.

The Geddings say they “love what we do, and we are proud to help keep the shipping business going.”
