Collaboration and connection are key

Through the years, we have had the opportunity to collaborate with a wide range of outstanding local, state and national firms and facilities including: the Minnesota State Capitol, Metropolitan Airports Commission, Minnesota Children's Museum, Macalester College, McDonald's, Shriner′s Hospital for Children, 3M, the City of St. Paul, Ramsey County, Bethel College, Unisys Corporation, Delta Airlines, and US Bank.

We bring a tradition of dependability and quality to your project, whether you're an owner, general contractor, property manager, developer, construction manager or architecture/engineering firm. Located in St. Paul, Minnesota, we began in 1922 as an appliance store and wiring installer and soon grew into a regional electrical contractor — eventually becoming one of the larger specialty contracting firms in the U.S.

Throughout our growth, we have remained a family-owned business that continues to emphasize the importance of community and personalized service. Under the guidance of three generations of family management, we have achieved substantial growth as well as a large volume of repeat business. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and an active member of the community, supporting many local organizations that benefit children, education and health care.
