“Joe” Dickey Electric is the Mahoning Valley’s foremost electrical contractor and energy solutions provider.
From replacing light bulbs in your home to building a substation for your company’s power plant and everything in between, we’ve built a reputation of being the company that can tackle any job with the highest level of quality and precision.
Since 1957, we’ve continued to challenge ourselves and refine our skill by keeping current with groundbreaking technology and training; a standard that CEO, Joe Dickey Jr. put into practice from the start.
“Dickey Electric consistently strives to improve our services to be the area’s most trusted and cost-effective electrical contractor,” Joe says. “We take pride in the fact that we are ‘Everything Electrical.’”
In addition to our growing local customer base, our wiremen have traveled to clients as far as Puerto Rico and South Korea.
We work closely with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, and enjoy a steady stream of talented electricians that come from the Joint Apprenticeship Training Program we helped establish with the union. Our work with the IBEW also allows us to offer lower service rates to our residential customers and helped create many new aspects of the business.
