Smith & Keene is a family-owned and operated business that has served the Hampton Roads region since 1947. Our owners are second and third generations of our founders and we only employ dedicated, long-term employees with hundreds of years of combined experience.
Our History in Hampton Roads
In 1947, two electricians at Newport News Shipyard decided to put their skills and knowledge of electrical wiring to work. They started Smith & Keene Electric Service, Inc. in Archie Smith’s garage in Newport News, building their business on the principles of quick service, quality workmanship and superior equipment. Today, their second and third generation family members are still running this business on these same principles, and we’ve become a household name in Hampton Roads because of our commitment to them. Call us today and find out why we’ve been the leader in electrical, HVAC and plumbing needs for the past 60 years.
Trust. Commitment. Excellence.

Thank you to all who supported Crossfit Krypton’s 3rd Annual Compete for a Cure. The event is getting bigger and stronger each year. In 2018, over $70,000 was raised, and 100% of that went straight to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
