About Us


As one of the largest providers of electrical contracting services in the greater New Orleans area, Frischhertz Electric Company manages both large and small-scale projects, frequently as a design-builder. We also handle smaller commercial and specialty project jobs and offer networking, security, audio-visual, and other technological services. Whenever a project requires anything concerning electricity, Frischhertz Electric is a single source contractor.


Members of the Frischhertz family founded the company in 1951, and the business remains family operated with a third generation of Frischhertz working in various capacities. Our longevity speaks to our quality of work, high standards, and reputation in the greater New Orleans region. Many of our electricians can point to continuous employment with our company for fifteen years or longer.


With our expertise and experience, not to mention our manpower, Frischhertz Electric has the capacity to manage even the largest of projects. Typically, we employ over 200 electricians at any one time.  If a customer ever has a question or problem, a member of the Frischhertz family is always available to provide a strategy or resolution.


Although Frischhertz Electric is one of New Orleans' oldest electrical contractors, it maintains a progressive outlook and embraces the important changes taking place in the industry’s methodologies and technologies. As an authority in design-build work, a delivery method that now accounts for 50% of all electrical contracting work nationwide, the company drafts its own contracting blueprints while working closely with engineers and architects. Furthermore, the business has aggressively sought out efficiencies and cost-savings for customers through comprehensive computer systems, using them in everything from inventory and invoicing to job-cost analyses and document imaging. Meanwhile, Frischhertz Electrical Services Group handles smaller commercial projects, specialty projects, generators, and disaster recovery with on-call electricians available twenty-four hours a day. In recent years, Frischhertz has established new groups such as Technologies and Soundworks to address clientele’s need for the latest in technological innovations including security systems, networking solutions, and audio-visual platforms.


As a leader in the industry, Frischhertz Electric Company is a member of the prestigious Electric Roundtable.This exclusive national association brings together prominent electrical contractors from across the United States to discuss electrical advances, industry trends, and strategies  on providing excellence to clients. All Roundtable members share similar philosophies and ideologies.


Frischhertz Electric prides itself on being a family owned and operated company.  There are now seven grandchildren of Bernard C Frischhertz, Sr. actively working in the company, all born and raised in New Orleans, reinforcing the firm’s strong local ties and commitment to the community.  The attitude of family also extends to the many Frischhertz employees who remain an important and dedicated asset to the company and contribute to its longevity and success.
