The Geier family entered the electrical business in the 1940s after Florian Geier returned home from serving in World War II. Florian and his brothers owned and operated Geier Electric together until their growing families made it possible for some brothers to form new companies to serve the area. Florian founded and ran G-L Electric for a time before his sons, Don and Steve, partnered with him to form 3 G Electric Inc in 1979. In 1981, Don became President of 3G Electric Inc and ran the company successfully for 38 years. In 2018, Don’s role shifted to Chairman of the Board, and his son, Scott, assumed the role of President. At 3G Electric we look toward the future with the same passion for excellence and commitment to quality as we have for three generations.
Don Geier is the Chairman of the Board of 3G Electric Inc in Garden City, Kansas. In 2018, Don transitioned to Chairman of the Board when his son, Scott, stepped into the role of President. Handing over the reigns to the family-owned electrical business has been the family tradition in the Geier family for three generations.
After graduating from Garden City Senior High School in 1967, Don attended Garden City Community College and eventually went to Oklahoma State University, where he was able to play football at the Division 1 level. During college, Don was drafted into the United States Army and spent three months in Basic Training. Mr. Geier returned to the Garden City community and started a family in 1975.
Don’s father, Florian, and Don’s uncles had been providing electrical services in the Garden City community since the 1940s and had established themselves as one of the leading electrical contractors in the area. Having witnessed and participated in the growth of their community, the Geier family saw an expanding need for quality electrical technicians and solutions. When he established 3G Electric, Inc with Don and another son, Steve, in 1979, Florian Geier was successful in ensuring the Geier family maintained a presence in Southwest Kansas as dependable and qualified electricians. Don Geier was elected as President of 3G Electric in 1981.
Don operated 3G Electric Inc for 38 years with a valued team of qualified personnel.

As he prepares for retirement, Don is excited to see the Geier family legacy continue. Mr. Geier is confident the values, dedication, and quality of service the Geier family has provided to their customers will always be the foundation of the business.
Scott grew up watching, learning from, and working alongside his father, Don, which obviously fueled a passion for the electrical trade. Scott graduated from Garden City High School in 1997.

As his father prepared for retirement in 2018, Scott was presented with the opportunity to carry on the family tradition and come back to the Garden City community to operate the family business. Scott accepted the position as President of 3G Electric and moved home in 2018.
Scott is excited to be back in Garden City in a position to contribute his knowledge and experience to the ever-growing and changing area.
