J. Ranck Electric

For 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.


The J. Ranck Electric Team embraces safety as a core value. To us, that means making decisions based on the goal that all employees return home safely every day. Our company safety program is called Safe 365 because we know that working safely is not something we can focus on one day and ignore the next. Rather, safety is something we make the decision to value each day, all 365 days of the year.

The rigging, excavation, and traffic control training sessions are funded by a Skilled Trades Training Fund grant that J.

Office, JRE applied for and was granted the funds to train up to 127 employees between January 9 and March 20, 2017.
