Spartan Electric Company is an open shop, located in Ijamsville, Maryland (between Germantown and Frederick). Spartan has been operating in the DC Metro area since 1964. Spartan is licensed and does extensive work in Washington, DC, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. At the present time, Spartan employs between 90 and 120 qualified electricians. Over the last few decades Spartan has mostly concentrated their business activity on new residential projects and competitively bid and negotiated commercial projects.
Spartan Electric was founded in 1962 by its current owner, Robby Robinson. Originally called Robby’s Electric the first three years of operation, Spartan Electric Company became incorporated in 1965. The name change was due to local competition and the winner of the 1965 College National Football Championship.
During the early years, work was done by Robby and one or two helpers. The office was based out of Robby’s home and there was only one truck, Robby’s. At the time, Spartan Electric only did business with a few, smaller, local companies. In 1981, Robby decided to expand the company. The office was moved out of the home to a nice office in Gaithersburg. At that time, Spartan had 5 employees. Now, during the industry boom several years ago, Spartan hit the peak at over 200 employees.
Spartan Electric has achieved large success due to their simple philosophy: “be the best you can be, do a better job than the competitors, do it faster, and do it for a decent price.” Repeat business is Spartan’s biggest asset; once Spartan does work for a contractor, they see how business is done and generally try to use us again and again.
All phases of electrical work is Spartan’s expertise, we do not specialize in one or two specific fields like residential or commercial. Spartan employs electricians experienced in all types of fields such as: residential, commercial, industrial, tenant spaces, high rise condominiums, generator installation, custom homes, communications, security, low voltage, and service. Builders do not have to hire separate contractors to do different phases of a job because our team of qualified electricians can do it all.
