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.
Our 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.
Training focus on Safety in 2017
The first quarter of 2017 is a time for training at J. Ranck Electric. In January, employees gathered at the company’s Mt. Pleasant location for training on rigging, excavation, and crane hand signals. There are still training sessions on excavating and traffic control on the schedule throughout the Spring. The rigging, excavation, and traffic control training sessions are funded by a Skilled Trades Training Fund grant that J. Ranck Electric has received in the amount of $36,962 from the State of Michigan Talent Investment Agency. Through the Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! Office, JRE applied for and was granted the funds to train up to 127 employees between January 9 and March 20, 2017.
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.
