1889 The partners obtained the Galway Electric Lighting Order; they extended their works and installed additional machinery.

1897 The Galway Electric Company, Limited, was incorporated; James Perry was Managing Director and Chief Engineer.

The business increased considerably, necessitating further extension of the works and machinery.
