I highly recommend Arco Electric. We needed some electrical upgrades to our bakery which is in an old building. We were using extension cords to keep everything running and it still wasn’t enough to avoid trouble. Arco Electric came in and in a day had everything working well with new circuits everywhere we needed them. They made sure everything we needed done was addressed before leaving and wanted honest feedback about our satisfaction after the service.

John with Arco Electric is absolutely incredible to work with. We had four electricians out over the course of a week working on different projects, and not only was John the most responsive, he was by far the most professional, able to troubleshoot unusual problems, and the fastest at his work. Could not recommend more highly!
