Our History

Peter Birnie – Founder

With one look from him, you knew that Peter Birnie meant business, and so did all his employees. Integrity, honesty, respect, and trust were some of the values Peter Birnie lived and ran his company by, and he never deviated from them.

Trust was especially important, and as a young manager in his father’s firm, Tim Birnie will never forget the day he went to his father with a payment issue. Turned out their #1 client at the time had paid an invoice twice. Tim asked his father what he should do, and without hesitating, Peter said to call the customer and advise them of their mistake. Other owners might not have done the same, and we are proud to say that we still have that client today.

Birnie Electric still operates with the values Peter Birnie instilled in his company all those years ago, and now it’s those same values that are key reasons why so many companies choose Birnie Electric as their preferred electrical contracting partner.
