In the summer of 1950 Charlie Austin and Roland Clark started A C Electric Corp. The first shop was located in a 2 car garage in New Auburn, Maine. Shortly thereafter they moved to a 4500sq/ft. building at 205 Washington Street in Auburn. They serviced textile and shoe industry electric motors.

AC Electric Corp was sold in 1971 to Frank Ramsdell. Frank made a substantial investment in state-of-the art equipment, improvements to the existing building and development of employee training programs. In 1973, Ronald Herrick was brought in as a partner. In 1976 a decision was made to build a new 6000sq/ft. motor repair shop at 40 Target Industrial Circle in Bangor, Maine. In 1982 the Bangor shop underwent an expansion doubling in size to 12,000sq/ft.

AC Electric moved out of 205 Washington Street (4500sq/ft.) in Auburn in 1985 and into a new 16,000sq/ft. building at 120 Merrow Road in Auburn.
In 1993, AC Electric expanded services with an Engineering division, including a field service group who provides predictive maintenance and onsite repair.

Daniel Parsons became President and CEO of AC Electric in 1994 and remains so today. In 2009, the Bangor shop underwent an expansion of 12,000sq/ft. increasing total size in Bangor to 24,000sq/ft. This expansion brought the total size in both shops, Auburn and Bangor, to 40,000sq/ft.
