Parkin Electric – Servicing Home, Business, and Industry electrical needs, is very proud of the fact that today we are a third generation company.

Parkin 75 Year

Leading The Industry For Decades

Our family is not just limited to blood, as we genuinely believe in maintaining a “family” atmosphere with all of our employees.  We do take our work very seriously, but also strongly believe that having a relaxed and enjoyable place to work, greatly increases the productivity of our people.

Thomas Parkin founded what is now Parkin Electric in 1945.

He originally started business in Madras, Oregon and then moved the company to Portland.  In 1968 the company was passed to Tom’s son Harry, who ran the company until he in turn passed the reigns to his son Dave (third generation), and wife Maureen in 1990.  In 2001 Dave and Maureen moved the company to it’s present location in Oregon City, Oregon.

B. Rhoads

Randa demonstrates the height of professionalism and perfectionism. Her attention to detail and response to my fire worries was exceptional finding a breaker that needed replacement as well as something outside that could be a potential hazard. Please share.

N. Schaefle

We Thank you for the work that was done to get power to our garage/shop area and wanted you to know that it was a pleasure to work with Mike.  He was considerate and easy to have here… he did his job carefully and cleaned up where he worked.. He certainly is competent!

D. Peterson

Just wanted to let you know Ben was great. He was professional and personable and helpful with showing us how things worked. I can't remember the name of the other guy (Cristian) but he was great too and they did a great job and cleaned up the area where the generator is. And of course we were so impressed with Tammy and appreciated her help, with our somewhat drawn out process. Very impressed with the service at Parkin.

David D.

Worth every penny, Parkin is the best! 

D. Kost

We were impressed by Dave B’s service and professionalism… I am sure he is not unique to the other techs and employees at Parkin.  We are very satisfied with how we were treated from the point of making an appointment through all of the service.  There is no doubt we will be returning customers for future needs, as well as highly recommending Parkin Electric to everyone we know.
