In 1961, J.F. Wagner began a small, electrical contracting company out of his home. Wagner specialized in providing labor for companies looking for high-quality work and superior customer service. Over the years, Wagner’s business grew through word of mouth from satisfied customers. He eventually expanded his operation and moved into his first office in 1975. Wagner’s sons, Christopher and Michael, worked in the business growing up and upon graduating from the University of Louisville in 1971, joined their father full-time. Together, the three of them expanded and built a strong foundation for Wagner Electric. Their goal then, as well as now, is to develop a strong state-of-the-art electrical contracting and service business, while providing excellent customer relationships.
In 2002, the third generation of the Wagner family joined the company. Tony joined his father, Michael, to help manage the Electrical Division and expand the Lighting Division. Today, Wagner Electric continues its focused effort of providing full-service electrical construction, service, and maintenance.
Wagner Electric is the culmination of J.F.’s vision and the strong foundation he and his family have built over the decades. It is a tradition of excellence carried on by his sons, grandson, and the hundreds of employees that have dedicated their efforts to serving Wagner Electric customers for half a century.
