I've recently relocated to Charlotte from Ohio and I'd like to get in touch with engineering recruiters for my wife, an Electrical Engineer currently still working in OH.
Any of you good people have any suggestions or contacts I could try?

Depending on where you live, this might help. There's an opening in Kings Mountain. Baldor Electric Company, a leader in energy efficient electric motors, linear motors and adjustable speed drives industry If that works for you, location-wise, good luck.

did you try linked in not only for jobs but do a search on linked for engineering recruiters charlotte and it brings up quite a few then have your wife connect with them.

you could try Trey Cameron he is on there and it may lead to others and more
another one to connect to would be Steven Halverson he is a Siemens recruiter

There are lots of engineering jobs in the area (I know Siemens and others cannot find good engineers), I get contacted on regular basis through Linkedin.

Although I'm not looking for a job, I get many posting emailed direct to me from this site:
Job Search Made Simple | Simply Hired
Just set it up for the search you need and it will give you a periodic update (sometimes daily).

Lack of skilled engineers is a big problem for US manufacturing in general, since so many good ones have retired and not enough bright kids had much interest in probably the hardest university programs - it is a serious impediment to job growth. Honestly I cannot blame the smart kids, why bother setting up a path in a manufacturing industry that has been shipped overseas for decades...

It is sad that in our society many professionals are paid a lot more than engineers - a great engineer is most important for a society future development (inventions around us support my theory). Reality is that as a nation we need bright engineering minds to create the next great products, which along the way create the necessary jobs.

I agree with this, Simplyhired is a good site too. There is a need for engineers I get contacted a couple of times a month and I am not currently looking either.

To the OP don't rule out Fort Mill either they have a few companies in that area looking for engineers too when doing a general search.
