Who We Are

"Serving the NH Seacoast since 1987"


Founded in 1987, Artisan Electrical Contractors –or Artisan Electric as we are known today—is a full-service electrical contracting company founded on the core values of quality, integrity, accountability, innovation and balance. More than words, these 5 core values define how we interact and conduct business with our residential, commercial, and industrial customers across NH, ME, VT and MA.

In every decision we make in the field, we pursue quality.

We act with honesty without ever compromising the truth.

We acknowledge and assume responsibility for our actions, products, decisions and policies.

We pursue the latest technologies in a consistent effort to improve the lives of our customers.

We create a healthy and safe culture in which our employees can prosper in the community.


When Founder Al Lawrence sat down to write his business plan in 1987, he wanted to come up with a name for his company that would accurately describe the kind of service he wanted to provide.

He eventually chose “Artisan,” because he wanted to convey a very real sense of pride he wanted every employee to feel about their work at Artisan Electric. It is a pride he and everyone at Artisan Electric feel today about any job done well. More generally, ‘artisan’ is a word that implies craftsmanship, quality, and trust, which define the company’s everyday approach to business. We refer to this approach as “The Artisan Way.”

More than a tagline, The Artisan Way is defined by innovative solutions and superior customer service. We will do whatever it takes to ensure every customer has the best experience possible. We do not sell electrical services and products. We create solutions grounded in expert knowledge of current products and available technologies.

It is not what we do, but how we do our work that separates us from others in the electrical service industry. Click HERE to see examples of what we do for our residential customers.
