“I had the pleasure of working with Harrington Electric on many projects in my past 18 years with the University. Most recently we completed the Nord Family Greenway and the East Bell Commons projects. These were two major and important projects for Case Western Reserve University and the University Circle community.
Harrington Electric showed great professionalism through both projects. They went above and beyond on their basic contract requirements on many occasions. One example of this was painstakingly painting antique style poles in front of the Cleveland Museum of Art to match existing poles. Another example was Tom Morgan’s connections with the Electric Utilities to help smooth the process of getting new services to the sites.
I would highly recommend Harrington Electric for electrical and data work. They are highly capable and are a pleasure to work with.”

“It is a distinct privilege to recommend the Harrington Electric Company. As an Architect, I have worked with many Project Managers for Harrington Electric over the years on dozens of projects, small to large. No matter the scope, Harrington Electric has always been responsive to meet the projects’ budget and time constraints regardless the complexity. From both the electrical and data sides, both divisions strive to work seamlessly within the specified requirements and work environment to produce a quality performance. They constantly are amenable to changes being made and cooperate fully with Ownership to provide the best solution at an affordable cost. On a final note, I can’t praise highly enough the President of the Harrington Electric Co., Mr. Tom Morgan. You will find no finer person to work with. He cares, he’s honest and he’s involved. Tom has not only maintained the fine reputation of the Company under his leadership but has taken the professionalism and customer satisfaction to another level. I highly encourage any General Contractor or Owner to include the Harrington Electric Co. as part of their design and construction team, you will not be disappointed.”
“Harrington Electric has worked with Gilbane on several projects over the years and most recently completed The Nord Family Greenway and East Bell Commons for Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) as well as the Smith Family Gateway for The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA). Located in the heart of University Circle, these projects required attention to detail and collaboration to be successful and Harrington Electric delivered. Whether it was coordinating with the electric company to expedite electrical service, building a custom data enclosure to blend in with the surroundings or meeting with CMA and CWRU after hours to demonstrate custom lighting options for the Turning Point Sculpture, they delivered. Harrington Electric is a client driven electrical, lighting and technology contractor and I highly recommend them.”
Gilbane Building Company
“Harrington Electric has been a valued partner for Breakthrough School for over 8 years. They have handled major construction projects, minor repairs, and cost savings initiatives (LED lighting retrofits, as an example). In every instance, they have delivered excellent service and installations.
Harrington Electric will work with us to ensure we get the best value for work performed and they provide outstanding professional insight into ways to improve our overall electrical service within our buildings.
Once a project’s parameters are determined, working with Harrington is truly a worry-free experience. We highly recommend them for any electrical contracting needs.”
Director of Facilities and Procurement
“Harrington Electric Co. has been a member of the Builders Exchange for the past 60 years and we have used them on numerous occasions for all of our electrical needs including the installation of a generator and the design and build-out for our server room. They kept us informed throughout the process as they worked closely with our Director of IT. They were able to bring additional insight and product knowledge to our project as well. They have always been a pleasure to work with and, more importantly, they have always been extremely responsive to our needs.
In addition, Harrington Electric has served on our Board of Directors in an effort to help better the construction industry in northeast Ohio. We have always found them to be knowledgeable, professional and highly regarded throughout the industry.”

Tom Morgan and his team consistently deliver a great quality of work, are very eager to collaborate with when unforeseen construction issues arise, and have gone above and beyond their call of duty to make our projects a success. I would highly recommend Harrington Electric as a valued team member on your next project.”

“Our first experience with Harrington Electric was about 10 years ago when we decided to upgrade our Shaw Stadium sports lighting. We soon learned that Harrington installed the original stadium lighting 50 years earlier! Since then Chris Carlson of Harrington has been taking care of our electrical needs. Recently, Harrington performed a complete LED lighting retrofit for our school district. We are very pleased with Harrington’s service and quality of work. As they say… responsive, competent and trusted.”

“My projects are only as good as the tradesmen that install them. The best of them happen when the electrical contractor becomes an enthusiastic participant in the process. Harrington Electric is exactly the kind of contractor I want on all of my jobs. My last project, the Turning Point Sculpture at CWRU, was a great success largely due to the efforts of Tom Morgan. Tom worked shoulder to shoulder with me, day and night, until everything was perfect. His dedication, ingenuity, and creativity made the project exceed our expectations.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Harrington Electric for over 20 years in both the General Contractor role as well as an Owner Agent, and I must say their professionalism and commitment to Customer Service is outstanding. They have assisted with many design-build opportunities as well as provided unsolicited value engineering opportunities to help all parties deliver a quality end product for less. When in need of a quality, committed electrical contractor I always reach out to Harrington Electric Co.”

“Working with Harrington on the Geometry Cleveland project was a great experience. The project was challenging and extremely fast paced. Harrington’s crew, led by Foreman Rick, helped drive the schedule, jumped through hoops with design changes and provided amazing service and quality of work. They went above and beyond to fix work done by owner subs and completed a challenging high-end chandelier install in an occupied space. I look forward to our next project together.”
The Albert M. Higley Co.
“I can personally attest to the quality of work performed by Harrington Electric. I had the pleasure of working for them during my apprenticeship to become a journeyman electrician, so I not only got to see their first class operation, I got to learn from some of the best journeymen in the business. Harrington Electric has been a big part of building the city of Cleveland for over a century. Now as business manager of the electricians union, I want to say that we are proud to have Harrington Electric as our longest serving electrical contractor.”

“Harrington Electric Co. performed the renovation of the Cleveland Sight Center in 2012 under the construction management of the A.M. Higley Company. They have been a go-to resource for electrical and technology service ever since. The Center has received not only excellent customer service from Harrington, but Harrington has been a supporter of our mission, as well. We highly recommend Harrington Electric Co. for their professionally-delivered electrical and technology expertise.”

“I have had the pleasure to work with Harrington Electric throughout the course of my professional career. The entire team has always had a Can-Do attitude and have been problem-solvers, not creators in the 5-years I have worked with the firm. I would recommend Harrington Electric to any GC/Developer/Etc. as they are a breath of fresh air when it comes to the team-friendly atmosphere. There has not been a project I have completed that I wasn’t left feeling satisfied.”

“It was a pleasure to work with Harrington Electric on the Mandel Jewish Day School project. The collaboration and in field adjustments to get a great final product in the end was very appreciated. I’ll look forward to working with them again in the future.”
“I’ve worked with Harrington Electric for more than 25 years. In fact, my first project as a new engineer was with them. I recommend Harrington because of the quality of their work. Whether our project was a K-12 school addition, a church renovation, or a new office building, Harrington provided consistent quality. They are detailed in the field, dependable with scheduling, and easy to work with.”

“While I’ve only known Tom Morgan for ten years, I’ve known Harrington Electric and the Morgan family for many, many years. Their reputation for being one of the finest electrical contractors in Cleveland has been far reaching in the world of the National Electrical Contractors Association. That reputation is being solidified and perpetuated under Tom’s leadership. To me the words that sum up what you get at Harrington Electric are honesty, reliability and quality.”
