Sparks Company Inc. provides top-quality commercial and residential electrical services to companies in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. For more than 20 years, the company has been committed to improving services and finding better ways to help customers achieve their goals. Whether a customer is interested in updating its UPS system or installing new lighting, Sparks Company will provide the high-quality electrical services they expect.

Sparks Company works within a variety of industries but its biggest repeat customers are those in the healthcare educational and food processing industries, serving well-known brands such as Ocean Spray. It performs work such as installing fire and emergency safety systems, building fit-ups, lighting systems, HVAC controls and automation, commercial generators, UPS systems and electrical design for IT rooms. The company prefers to stay within five or six projects at a time, depending on its size.

“Most of our work is done by our own employees,” President John Sparks says. “We don’t hire too many subcontractors. Occasionally we’ll hire a fire alarm or security subcontractor, but that’s about it. All the other facets of what we do are done with our employees.”
