The Smalls family has been involved in the field of construction for over 70 years, since Jeffrey’s grandfather, Samuel Smalls, ventured into business. Samuel was a carpenter in the late 1940’s and later mastered the art of plumbing, becoming one of the first and very successful African American Master Plumbers in New York.
After seeing his father’s success, Jeffrey’s father, James Smalls, formed J.E. Smalls Enterprises, Inc., when he obtained his Master Plumber’s license in 1976. Over his 30 years in the business, James cultivated a substantial customer base in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn, New York.
In 1997, Jeffrey Smalls established Smalls Electrical Construction, Inc., the third generation of Smalls entrepreneurs. Since 1997, Smalls Electrical Construction, Inc., has established itself to be one of the premier electrical contracting companies in the New York City area building on the past 70 years of construction experience. Today, our unrivaled performance and commitment to quality has enabled Smalls Electrical Construction, Inc., to continue to exceed the expectations of our customers and critics alike.
Honesty, reliability and hard work have been the guiding standards that continue to carry on the Smalls name in the construction industry.
