– Since 1948 –
Collins was established in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1948 to help meet the electrical construction demands of postwar America. Through the years, we’ve built customer relationships on a foundation of integrity and trust—a philosophy that has been the cornerstone of our company since its inception. Today, Collins has grown into a multimillion-dollar, full-service electrical and technology contracting company.

Because our employees are our most valuable asset, safety is an integral part of Collins’ culture.
To ensure that safety remains uncompromised, all employees receive proper equipment and annual training on potential hazards, preventative actions, and OSHA regulations. Key foremen also receive OSHA 10- and 30-hour training as well as NFPA 70E and continuing education in safe workplace practices. We are also certified by ISNetworld and BROWZ–a third-party evaluator that sets stringent guidelines for safety practices.
Collins’ safety program consistently places as one of the best in the industry.
