By requiring everyone in our firm to use standardized methods of working, from field to office personnel, we ensure our projects are estimated and managed in the least costly and most productive manner, creating the best value for our customer. 

DL Smith History

In 1972, DL Smith bought a small one-man electrical contracting firm located in Topeka. The company rapidly grew through the decades by consistently listening to the customers and providing excellent, safe electrical service.

DL Smith Electric moved to its current location at 1405 SW 41st in 1982. The company expanded its client base and experience through the decades. By the late 90s, the company had established itself within the healthcare, industrial, and energy markets, while expanding in the traditional commercial markets as well.   

Excellent Safety Record

DL Smith Electric has an industry-leading safety record and drug-free workplace policy, to ensure the health and safety of both our employees and customers.

We require mandatory drug testing for prospective and current employees.

Our Experience Modification Rate, used to measure our overall safety performance, for the last several years has remained between .67-.79 which is well below the industry average of 1.0.

Our Total Recordable Incident Rates have always averaged well below our industry benchmarks. We continually strive within the company to achieve and maintain a Zero Incident Rate.
