Established in 1982, the company now employs 10 electricians who service Newport County, Tiverton, Little Compton, South County and West Bay residents and businesses. Through the years an impressive list of formidable clients contracted Chris and his crew of expert electricians. Among them was Doris Duke, the Newport heiress and philanthropist who contracted Chris to do maintenance on 87 properties in the area. The roster of renowned clients also includes the Carnegie Abbey Club in Portsmouth, the Newport Harbor Corp., Boys Town New England in Portsmouth, and recently, Newport’s Trinity Episcopal Church, one of the nation’s oldest landmarks.

“We revamped all the exterior lighting at Trinity Church,” Chris noted. “So when you’re driving over the Newport Bridge at night and see that beacon, think of me!” Chris said in an interview for an article in the Road Island Builders Association News.
