We’re throwing the confetti and cheering to nearly a century of excellence in electrical construction and 30 years of 100 % employee ownership! We would not be here today if it weren’t for YOU — our employees, customers and community.

We thank you for 95 years of loyalty and for being part of Lemberg’s story.

By remembering our past and empowering our teams to strive for industry excellence and innovation, we continue to propel our company, our customers and our community forward.


Remembering Lemberg’s History

Lemberg was built on a foundation of trust, integrity, and loyalty. For 95 years, we have been setting the standards in the electrical industry, always pushing and finding ways to improve.

William and Clara Lemberg founded Lemberg Electric Company, Inc. in Milwaukee in 1928. Combining a highly skilled workforce with innovative technology, the company saw steady and stable growth from a small, local electrical contractor to a major contender in the southeastern Wisconsin market.

In 1992, Lemberg was reborn under an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) structure, redefining what it means to be a Lemberg owner. It was with this change that truly started the journey to become the professional organization we are today. The ESOP structure allowed Lemberg to grow and sustain itself over the last 30 years and will continue to do so for years to come.

In 2014, the company rebranded to simply Lemberg, using specific iconography to identify five separate areas of service — electrical service, construction, business sign design and installation, data communications, and energy technologies.

Today, Lemberg continues to provide expanded, turnkey services within its commercial niche serving construction, industrial/manufacturing, property development, healthcare, education, civic, retail, hospitality and entertainment industries.

We are always proud to support Milwaukee-area businesses with innovative electrical construction services and 24-hour emergency on-call services. It is through these collaborations we are encouraged to strive for excellence, providing you with nothing but the best.

Thanking Our Employees, Customers, and Community

We are raising our glasses and saying ‘thanks’ to the ones who have helped us along the way. Our deepest gratitude goes to you — our employees, customers, and community — for your loyalty. You are our foundation, our family, and our future.

It is through your support we are able to call ourselves one of Milwaukee’s largest and most trusted employee-owned electrical construction organizations. It’s our honor to continue to set the bar in electrical industry standards, and we sincerely look forward to what the future holds.

Here’s to the next 95 years!
