a leading midwest electrical construction firm

Mike Barth, Sr. founded Barth Electric Company in 1945.

The first offices were located at 804 Virginia

Avenue. The Company moved its operations to

2407 North Illinois Street in 1951. In 1956 the

Company reorganized from a sole proprietorship

to a corporation. Today Barth Electric remains a

closely held Family Corporation.

By 1989 continued prosperity had prompted yet

another move to larger facilities under the

guidance of Mike Barth Jr. That year, the Barth

operations relocated to 1934 North Illinois

Street, a continuing example of its commitment

to the near-north side of Indianapolis. Today,

Barth Electric Co., is one of the leading electrical

construction companies in the Midwest.

Presently with Mike Barth III at the helm, the office and warehouse operations of

Barth Electric occupy a full city block

and employ 75 on-site personnel in

addition to over 300 field electricians. In

2020, Barth Electric is celebrating its 75th

anniversary of providing the highest

level of personal and professional services.
