What Clients Say

About Northridge Electric
  • We are happy.  Turnaround time was great and everything was done efficiently and professionally.  We really did like the cable holders.  Keeps things very clean under the tank.  Many thanks to you and your team.

    Budget Propane Corporation
  • The propane control system Northridge provided for our facility has been excellent. We had some operational issues when we first started the system but Northridge dealt with them in a very timely fashion and we are pleased to say the system has increased our efficiency and product output capabilities! I would gladly recommend Northridge to anyone for their outstanding products and services.

    RS Bulk Propane Inc
  • In 2014/15 Wilson Fuel built a propane storage bulk plant in Moncton, New Brunswick and hired Northridge Electric to install all the control systems for the facility. It was our experience with Ken and his knowledgeable, conscientious team that they are top notch in their field. They delivered, on time, all of the specified work.
    I would not hesitate to recommend Northridge Electric Inc. to any company to do their electrical control systems.

    Wilson Fuel Co. Ltd
  • I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Northridge Electric Inc. for their control systems knowledge, design capability, and installation services. Bramwood Forest Inc is a supplier of high quality wholesale lumber products. We are dependent on the efficient operation of our equipment to be able to provide our customers with quality, competitive pricing and reliability. We were having numerous issues over the past few years with our original dust collection unloading system jamming up and stopping production for hours at a time. We approached Northridge for a solution. They were able to fully understand our process and designed, manufactured and retrofitted new control panels which integrated into the existing field wiring of the material handling system. The installation was performed in a professional, punctual manor and we are pleased to say we have had no production shutdowns due to dust collector/unloading system blockages since!

    Bramwood Forest Inc.
  • It is my pleasure to recommend Northridge Electric Inc for their exceptional design solutions, control systems, installation and services which they provided for our new mid-stream propane terminals in Putnam, Ontario as well as a prefabricated system which they designed, built and shipped to our plant in Proctor, Minnesota.  These terminals receive in-bound propane shipments by rail, which is stored and transferred to bulk tank trucks.  Various aspects of the terminals are entirely interlocked including the rail rack, pump and valve controls, safety shut down systems, gas detection, CCTV, gas metering and authorized plant access, all of which are fully automated, networked and can be monitored offsite.   At every step of the process, Northridge provided expert advice, prompt execution, and steady commitment.  These terminal control systems are best in class and have contributed to the increased efficiency and profitability of our company.
