At a sixth grade science fair Larry disassembled a combustion engine to identify its parts. That project ignited his love of all things mechanical and set his trajectory. After Vocational school, he began his career as an electrical apprentice. Yet there was another job. Larry enlisted in the Army. Arriving in Vietnam his assignment was heavy equipment mechanic with the 34th Engineer Battalion where he did two tours. Twice decorated one Commendation reads, ‘For devotion to duty, loyalty and vast technical knowledge.’
Returning home and fiercely independent he fast tracked his Journeyman and Master’s license. With business ownership, in his blood, Larry founded DiFoggio Electric in 1973. He raises the bar on everything he does and in business; Larry knows that no one owner is an island. His ‘Teach me to fish’ outlook helped him to build an idea into a business that spans four decades.
Larry has the innate ability to ‘see’ the core of a complex problem and deliver a solution quickly. He is the experts ‘go-to’ for perspective, expertise and advice. When he’s not examining electrical plans or consulting you’ll find Larry in his workshop building a scale model Blast Furnace, no directions necessary.
From troubleshooting IT issues and nurturing client relationships to sending proposals, the team refers to Andrea as the OZ behind the curtain. Quite simply Andrea makes internal operations at DiFoggio Electric hum. As a husband and wife team, Andrea is the other half of this dynamic duo. Taproot, advisor and sage, she has been at Larry's side since the company's inception.
A professional in her own right, she has helped to grow the business from sole proprietors to employing Master Electricians, Journeymen and apprentices with eight trucks in the field. The company continues to grow. Among the client's they serve, the DiFoggio Electric reputation speaks for itself.
As a hands-on owner, Andrea is in the trenches directing internal operations while keeping a keen eye on the big picture. She is meticulous. Detailed. Intuitive. Andrea zeros in on client needs with a 'how does she know that?' reaction. Outside of DiFoggio Electric Andrea has been known to whip up a batch of 'you can taste the love,' made from scratch Ricotta cookies.

The second time is a charm. Eddie started as an apprentice at DiFoggio Electric in 2002 at the age of eighteen. Wanting to field his oats, he went to work for another electrical contractor. It wasn’t until he was recruited back to the company in 2010 he realized, DiFoggio Electric is home.
Energetic and possessing the business administration savvy you’d expect from an Ivy League MBA, Eddie combines his knowledge of the electrical trade with his business and leadership skills. He brings contemporary ideas to the company under Larry’s mentorship. While it’s not a father son relationship, the Eddie Larry combo relate to and razz each other as if they are. It’s where four decades of compounded electrical trade experience meets the next generation.
From planning the schedule to running the crews, working on business alliances and the strategic direction for the company, Eddie is the hand that fits the glove Director of Operations. Off the job, you might spot Eddie at a Boston eatery enjoying a great steak and a cocktail.
From the Master Electricians with two decades of service, to the new hires to every tradesman in between, the guiding principle of the DiFoggio Electric Team is, ‘The customer, is our employer.’ We invite you to experience Electrical Contractors. Beyond Ordinary.
