About PAR

When PAR set out to offer its electrical construction services, we knew we wanted to become the most trusted contractor of choice in the electrical industry. For us, that meant offering clients the most knowledgeable crews—outfitted with the best tools and equipment made by the best manufacturers—and completing each project economically, efficiently, and safely.

Now, more than 60 years later, PAR is the largest, most respected electrical contractor in the United States.

That means we’ve worked almost everywhere, with almost everyone. We are trusted daily to complete extraordinary and difficult projects by some of the industry’s largest and most important utilities.

Based in Kansas City, Missouri, PAR has permanent offices across the nation as well as temporary offices near its work sites. This national presence and local strength allows PAR to serve its clients safely and efficiently.

PAR’s original owners had the foresight to see how evolving economic conditions would affect electrical utilities and other power generators. They were the driving force behind the four companies that formed Quanta Services.

As a member of the Quanta family, PAR draws on a full range of pooled resources; a benefit that differentiates PAR from its competitors. Not only does PAR have access to the largest staff of qualified union line crew personnel in the United States, it also has access to more than 48,000 pieces of equipment.

PAR’s field employees are members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).

This strong IBEW/NECA connection provides our clients with uniquely trained, highly productive and safety-oriented personnel. In this time of acute labor shortages, the availability of qualified line crews is critical. PAR can meet all your labor needs—a claim many contractors make but can’t deliver like PAR.
