San Franciscans Nick Dutto and Dave Lindt established Metro Electric in 1981 with a single used pickup truck and little capital. The two founders did it all, with Dave in the office and Nick in the field. The partners successfully grew Metro Electric and soon purchased the building where they had originally rented an office. Dave retired; Nick has remained as President. After four decades, Metro Electric is now one of the most successful electric contractors in the Bay Area, leading with forward-thinking behavior and solid customer relations.

One of the reasons Metro Electric has been successful is our sense of mission. Our mission focuses on relationships, quality, success and commitment.
