Cranston, RI – Glynn Electric, one of the largest electrical contractors in Massachusetts, announced the opening of a new office on Comstock Parkway in Cranston. Executives said the move is aimed at extending the firm’s regional reach and enabling more efficient service for new and existing commercial and residential customers in Rhode Island. Keith Blanco is heading up the new office.
Glynn has been in business for more than 30 years and has nearly 300 employees in Massachusetts alone. In addition to providing comprehensive electrical services, the company also has a sizable fire alarm and protection division and tel/data/networking group, as well as an integrated security and SmartHome technologies team, all of which will be available to the Rhode Island market.
“We are thrilled to have a new base of operations in Rhode Island. Investing in this additional physical infrastructure while continuing to develop our local workforce will enable Glynn to better serve our Rhode Island customers and bring our full suite of services to the community,” said Vito Rubini, president of Glynn Electric.
Director of business development, James Brookshire, shares Rubini’s enthusiasm about the recent expansion into the ocean state. “Glynn has long been a presence in Rhode Island on the construction side, but our new office will allow us to significantly expand on the services side while being much more responsive to the needs of commercial and residential customers,” Brookshire said.
Blanco reports that business is off to a robust start. “We are building strong relationships right out of the gates and have already seen a high number of calls from repeat clients. I believe this is a testament to the quality work and focus on customer service that Glynn brings to the market. We expect that trend to continue as we make a name for ourselves and build our reputation outside of Massachusetts’ borders,” Blanco said.
Glynn’s founder and namesake, Matt Glynn, said the community can expect Glynn to be more than just another business in town but also to be an actively engaged member of the community.
“As a company, Glynn has been blessed with a level of success I never imagined when we started out over 30 years ago. I believe that ‘to those whom much is given, much is expected.’ With this in mind, I look forward to getting more connected with the Rhode Island communities we will serve in order to discover their needs and find ways that Glynn can give back,” Glynn said.
