Kirby Risk Corporation is financially and strategically focused on helping customers address the growing competitive pressures to reduce costs, conserve resources, improve productivity and reduce time to manufacture goods and services. We can provide total cost of ownership solutions such as asset and integration management, and consulting services that will allow manufacturers to quickly respond to industry trends.

Kirby Risk Corporation places a high value on its customers, employees, vendors and community relations. Going above and beyond what it takes to provide the right parts at the right time, to the right place, and at the right cost is not a sacrifice...it's a minimum requirement. Staying committed to this concept of "sacrificial service" has fueled Kirby Risk since 1926.

Today, Kirby Risk Corporation has evolved into a multi-faceted business with 4 operating business units:

Kirby Risk Electrical Supply provides quality electrical, automation, lighting and power distribution products and solutions for maintenance, design and installation of electrical systems.

ARCO Electric Products is a division of the Kirby Risk Corporation. ARCO specializes in the manufacture of roto-phase converters.


Kirby Risk is celebrating 90 years in business (1926-2016).

Kirby Risk established our company in an abandoned blacksmith shop on North Second Street in Lafayette, Indiana, in 1926. Eventually, it became known as the Kirby Risk Electric Company in 1934.

Today we are still known by our customers as a dependable resource, dedicated to solving their problems twenty-four hours a day. This commitment continues.
