NEWTON — As founder of EM Electrical Contracting, Eric Martino has carved his own path as one of the best electrical contractors in New Jersey.

After receiving his NJ Master Electrical license in 1995, Martino formed the company in 1996, and has built it up to 24 employees.

In order to be formidable in the competitive electrical industry, Martino and his technicians attend continuing education courses throughout the year to be knowledgeable about the latest technology and changes in codes.

With the rising cost of energy, EM Electrical offers their customers an option through conversion to Solar Energy and LED lighting and leading by example, they have converted their facility.

EM Electrical is an Eaton Cutler-Hammer Certified Contractor and a Certified, factory trained Kohler, Generac, GE, Briggs and Stratton generator installer and dealer.

With these credentials and a reputation for honest, efficient work, companies such as Intercar Mercedes of Newton, Lakeland Bank Sparta, Lakewood Toyota, Planet Honda in Union, McGuire Chevy, Bridgewater Audi, Thor Labs, Sparta Movie Theater Building, Royal GMC of Sussex, Pope John High School and Reverend Brown School additions and Shoprite has been trusting EM Electrical for their electrical needs.

The generator division of EM Electrical provides a complete job, which includes backing up the customer’s system with 24-hour service and maintenance contract. They are also the only generator and electrical services installer for Home Depot in the northern district.

The success of the EM Electrical has facilitated the formation of EM Signs — a modern, innovative company that creates interior or exterior signs.

EM Electrical is partnering with Morris County Technical School to offer an apprentice program. This 5-year electrical technician’s degree program allows students to gain practical, theoretical knowledge and hand on experience from EM Electrical’s years of experience in the electrical industry.

To further show their commitment to education, EM Electrical pays 50 percent of the tuition of the Morris County School of technician’s students who maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

The students are also offered cash towards purchasing tools and employment upon graduation.

EM Electrical also donates to the Habitat for Humanity, SCARC Foundation, Catholic Diocese, and local Police and Fire Departments and local programs. His affiliations include Sussex County Chamber of Commerce, Better Business Bureau, Sussex/Warren Electrical Contractors Association, Eaton advisory board, NJ Vocational School Training Program, Fraternal Order Police Sparta, and the Electrical Inspectors Association.
