Provident Electric LLC was established by Baton Rouge native Larry Touchet in 2002. Starting from a small home-based garage, Provident’s structure began exclusively with residential clientele. Touchet knew that, in order to grow, he would need to expand the company’s client base as well as the services provided. A grass roots marketing campaign was implemented to target the clients at ‘eye-level.’ The efforts paid off, and Provident was ready to move on to the next phase.

Provident began expanding its services into the commercial industry, starting with small tenant fit-outs and rehab projects. To accommodate this growth, the company moved into a warehouse/office space in the heart of Frederick, MD. As the months passed, and successful projects came to completion, Provident increased its employee base and began offering additional contracting services with more complex requirements. Project bids were awarded with steady increase, and soon, the company engaged project managers and foremen with years of industry experience to continue its path to success.

Provident recently doubled the size of its offices and warehouse in order to accommodate the company’s continued growth. Today, Provident proudly provides contracting services to both residential and commercial clients in several facets.
