Butterfield Electric Inc. History:

Butterfield Electric Inc. was started by Rick Butterfield in 1985 as an Industrial Service Electrical Contracting Company in Woodland, California. After college and before starting Butterfield Electric, Rick worked for Mobil Chemical in their Stratford, Conn. Plant. He transferred to the Woodland California plant and worked in the engineering department as the electrical supervisor. Butterfield Electric grew from 1 to 10 service vans at which time an office was opened in Woodland. In 1990 the company expanded into Commercial Construction and in 1999 moved to a new location just off of Interstate 5, five minutes north of the Sacramento International Airport. By 2007 the company had already out grown that building and we once again relocated into a new facility located at Highway 113 and Interstate 5 in Woodland, CA

Butterfield Electric Inc. has grown to become one the top 10 Electrical Contractors in the Sacramento Valley area as listed in the Sacramento Business Journal for 2008, completing multi-million dollar projects with annual sales of approximately 27 million dollars in 2007.
