Sorting through all the information available on electrical contracting companies to find the right one for your project can be a challenge. The right electrical contracting companies for a given project will depend on the industry, budget, location, and project size. To help make the research easier, we’ve compiled a list of the top 25 electrical contracting companies in 2019.
To rank the different electrical contracting companies, we took into account 2018 revenue, company size, and some subjective measures such as projects completed and industries served. We’ve given more weight to the quantifiable metrics of revenue and company size, but a higher ranking doesn’t necessarily imply a given electrical contracting company is the right firm for a particular project.
Expertise in a given industry and a reputation for completing similar projects goes a long way. Where applicable, we’ve linked to resources that will help you learn more about the companies and data we have provided to help you select the right firm for the job.
