Sprig Electric was established and founded in 1970 by Pepper Snyder. Pepper started the company from scratch with a generous loan of $3,000 from his parents. Pepper ran the business out of the family room at the Snyder home. From day one, Pepper’s recipe for success has been based off of one concept:

Work hard and surround yourself
with good, talented people

When it came to naming the business, Pepper, who is an avid outdoorsman, had only one name in mind; “Sprig Electric”. A Sprig is a Northern Pintail species duck and Pepper always envisioned a company with Sprig-like characteristics: Strength, agility, speed, endurance and trim form. To date, Sprig Electric has established a tempo of continued growth and expanding capabilities.

The San Jose based company now ranks among the largest contractors in California and has over 500 employees. Sprig Electric has built a reputation for excellence while delivering comprehensive electrical and low voltage contracting services. Sprig Electric provides complete installation expertise, 24/7 service, energy audits, alternative energy solutions and in-house design and engineering including LEED services.

Despite the growth over the years, Sprig Electric has always maintained its modest culture and Sprig-like characteristics. The employees of Sprig Electric are the primary reason we benefit from a group of returning clientele. We are proud to have a company culture that brings out the best in all personnel, both individually and in a team environment. Those who know of Pepper’s gentle demeanor and soft- spoken country charm insist that it’s his innate networking ability and tireless dedication to his employees and customers that make Sprig Electric the company it is today.
