San Franciscans Nick Dutto and Dave Lindt established Metro Electric in 1981 with very little capital, a single used pickup truck, and the two founders doing it all, with Dave in the office and Nick in the field.

Nick had grown up in a family of electricians, and worked his way through the trade from Apprentice to General Foreman. After being honorably discharged from the Navy after serving his country in Vietnam, Nick went to work for Aldo Lera, serving as a purchasing agent and storekeeper in the Lera Electric warehouse. Dave had a similar background within the construction trades.

The two partners successfully grew Metro Electric, and soon purchased the building where they had originally rented an office. They started two new divisions to complement their electrical work (Data Communications and Special Projects).

Dave retired and the company exploded into the new century with no sign of slowing down. Metro Electric continued to lead with forward-thinking behavior and solid customer relations, becoming one of the most successful electric contractors in the Bay Area.

Fast forward to the present, and that one truck that Nick and Dave used to begin the company has grown into a fleet of 125 vehicles with a field crew of over 250, and an office and management staff of more than 40.

“It’s all about the relationships,” says Nick proudly as he reflects upon the first four decades of Metro Electric’s growth. “We still have many of the same customers we started with.”

Nick says his only retirement plan is to be carried out of his office at 2400 Third Street. Now that’s dedication to his company!
