Kirby Electrical Contracting

Pat Kirby, James Patrick Kirby, and Ryan Kirby

At Kirby Electric, we don’t have a mission statement or corporate philosophy. What we have is a simple promise to each and every customer - a promise to deliver unmatched timeliness, quality and value on every job we undertake.

Building on that promise, we’ve invested in the material and human resources required to effectively manage projects of significant size and complexity. Today, our work covers virtually every aspect of electrical contracting - including commercial, industrial, power generation, steel, and institutional work. And, while Kirby Electric has grown to become one of the largest electrical contractors in the eastern United States, our goal has never been to become the biggest - rather, to become the best.

We’ve assembled a team of dedicated professionals intent on delivering the promise. In over 60 years, we’ve never failed to complete a contract. Our on-time-on-budget track record is a source of intense personal and corporate pride. But, perhaps, the most telling testimony to our expertise is the extraordinary number of Kirby customers who are repeat customers.

Whatever the scope of your project, you can be assured that Kirby Electric has the resources, the expertise, the drive to deliver superior performance. And that’s a promise.

Proud History

Kirby Electric has its humble beginnings in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Its founder, James Patrick Kirby, was an Irish immigrant with a natural gift for working on machines and ambition to spare. His ingenuity and leadership led to Kirby’s first storefront in 1948, and from there Kirby grew through the years to become one of the most successful contractors in the area. We’re proud of our history, and it’s that same pride that shows in all of our successful projects to this day.
