DE Small Electric in 1980 with a goal of providing the highest level of service to residential, commercial and industrial clients.

About DE Small Electric and Media Solutions

Mission Statement

Our primary mission is to be the regional electrical contracting company of choice, to develop our personnel to be world-class performers, and to provide our clients with the highest level of quality, reliability and customer service in the industry.

In business for over 40 years, D.E. Small Electric is proud of our solid track record through the Merrimack Valley, Essex County, and beyond for providing quality electrical contracting work and media solutions at competitive prices. Owner/operator Michael Small took over this business from his father Douglas who established DE Small Electric in 1980 with a goal of providing the highest level of service to residential, commercial and industrial clients. We still adhere to that mission today, backed by integrity and an unconditional satisfaction guarantee.

Why We’re Different

What sets us apart from everyone else is our attention to detail. From battery-powered vacuums to booties and drop clothes in every one of our vans, we go that extra step to ensure a clean workspace. In fact, when we leave your home or business, it will be cleaner than it was before! On top of thorough, top-notch work, we believe it’s the little things that allow our clients to feel good about welcoming us into their homes and businesses.

Our ability to provide quality, safe, efficient work is second to none, whether that involves installing new restaurant or retail space lighting, custom full-house audio/visual integrated control systems, smoke detectors, emergency generator installation, replacement of knob and tube wiring, or even a simple ceiling fan.

40 Years in the Making

Michael Small first learned the electrical business from his father Douglas growing up. After leaving for a while to attend Assumption College and then work for a lighting and design firm in Connecticut, he eventually came back to work in the family business. He helped run the day-to-day operations, continued to grow the business, and became owner when Doug retired.

Now a business of six employees, this family-owned company based in North Andover has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1980. While they work primarily in Northern Mass and Southern New Hampshire, they have done work in Boston, Rhode Island, Maine and even Vegas. For the right customer and the right situation, we will accommodate all types of requests.

Here at D.E. Small Electric, we put a great emphasis on planning and staging. This saves you money, ensures a better end product, and makes for a smooth-running job site. We work directly with you to plan the job from beginning to end. With us, you get personalized attention you can’t find anywhere else. In fact, our owner Michael Small is either on each job or oversees each job. Our professional estimating, project management and production expertise can all guarantee that the project will be completed on time with uncompromising quality.

From that first meeting to the final walk-through, it is our goal to meet or exceed the expectations of all our clients.
