Founded in 1943 the Allison-Smith Company has evolved from a premier Atlanta electrical contracting and engineering firm into a company with a national and international presence. As a degreed electrical engineer, the founder, Robert Allison, instilled into the company a culture of applying electrical engineering acumen to the process of construction. The montage of projects began with the post WWII prosperity of Atlanta through the 1960’s. The 1970’s saw the company expand following clients throughout the Southeast. The 1980’s and 1990’s began the expansion both nationally and internationally. Today close to fifty percent of the companies employees may be outside the state of Georgia.
