J. Ranck Electric

For nearly 30 years, J. Ranck Electric has provided design-build and bid/spec construction services. A family business with roots in the Midwest, JRE has become a national presence in electrical and communications contracting. We strive to grant every customer the highest quality, safety, and professional experience with each construction project we perform. JRE keeps a close watch on our ever-changing industry while upholding our corporate values and remaining a financially sound, stable company with prudent growth.

IconToolsOur team takes pride in our ability to self-perform a wide scope of work while supporting the customer’s schedule and meeting their deadlines. With extensive experience and a host of resources, our crews are prepared to address the unique aspects of each project from concept to completion. JRE specializes in transportation, heavy industrial, power, water, oil, and gas infrastructure. No matter the customer or type of work, the JRE Team adds value on every construction project, repair, and maintenance call.

From apprentices to senior management, we all have a strong understanding of the coordination required for a safe and successful installation. Current customers know that when JRE promises to deliver, we are true to our word. Trust is not something that we take lightly and we value each relationship, whether it is with a customer, subcontractor or vendor. We strive to develop long-term connections with our customers, in order to create relationships built on trust, anticipated needs, and responsive action.


J. Ranck Electric has developed an extensive safety program, which complies with local, state, federal, and customer safety and health regulations. Under the direction of the JRE Safety Director, a safety committee comprised of management and field supervisors reviews safety procedures, coordinates training, and ultimately sets and enforces JRE’s safety standards and philosophies. Above all else, the goal is to send each person home to their family in the same, if not better, condition than how they arrived at a JRE project.


Solar at Skinner Park

J. Ranck Electric recently partnered with Life Remodeled, a Detroit-based non-profit, and donated the labor and installation of solar panels on their Skinner Park project. The new park is adjacent to Denby High School on Detroit’s northeast side, and the home of a new pavilion with a 4.8 kW rooftop solar array. Unlike the panels JRE typically installs, the PowerFLEX BIPV panels used in Skinner Park are flexible and roll out like a rug for installation.

Bikes for 80 Genesee County foster children

The J. Ranck Electric team has partnered with the Foster Closet of Michigan to give bikes to kids in Genesee County. In many cases, children come into foster care with only the clothes on their back. Foster families can’t always purchase a bike for the kids in their care; they must first focus on providing the essentials. Foster Closet of Michigan helps with those needs all the time, but right now, they’ve got a special mission to give bikes to kids in Genesee County and volunteers from JRE, DTE Energy, Barton Malow, and Inovateus are helping them pull it off.
