The Converse Difference

Converse Electric is a locally-based contractor that has been delivering electrical assurance to Greater Columbus since 1960. We specialize in all types and sizes of commercial, industrial and residential projects–with solutions including value engineering, new construction, remodels and additions, design/build, lighting control, 24-hour emergency service, and more.

We’re a family-owned company with a third-generation president who isn’t just a businessman but an electrician by trade, and with employees who aren’t just a number but an important part of our family. This extends into the way we treat our customers, too. We’re dedicated to going above and beyond for you–paying close attention to the details others often miss, delivering on what we promise, and building relationships.
