Founded by President and Electrical Consultant Larry DiFoggio in 1973, DiFoggio Electric, a full-service electrical contracting company serving the residential and commercial markets, has
been powering Boston for over 4 decades.
From townhomes in historic Louisburg Square to Back Bay icons like the Four Seasons to burgeoning new builds in the Seaport District, serving Boston residents has become second nature to the team of electricians at DiFoggio Electric.
The work is not for every electrical contractor. Director of Operations Eddie Stack, who began his career at DiFoggio as an apprentice at age 18, explains, “Working in Boston really is its own animal.” It requires a firm grasp not only of the work itself—which, for elite properties like One Dalton and The Millennium Tower is increasingly complex—but
also of city logistics and operations. As 85% of DiFoggio Electric’s business is in the city, the needs of clients are swiftly met, whether the company is called upon to “replace a switch or rewire a house from top to ottom.” Plus, with today’s intricate high-end AV systems, lighting and shade control, people look to DiFoggio Electric for counsel on details beyond what a plan delineates.
With 18 team members and growing, DiFoggio Electric is a family-run business with a big-city mentality. They work at such distinguished properties as the Mandarin Oriental, 50 Liberty, The Echelon Seaport, and more, and their standards are as high as the buildings they work on. DiFoggio Electric stands behind everything they do, and safety is paramount. “Our owner, Larry DiFoggio, views every project, as if it were his own,” says Stack. “That’s the way we approach it.”
