It was in 1922 that we first began operations, when Mr. Edward Wigdahl opened his business at the corners of Belmont and Milwaukee in Chicago, Illinois. The firm initially specialized in the hanging of light fixtures, which was an important electrical entity of building construction at that time. To accompany this form of business, The Wigdahl Company maintained a large display room containing the most current array of lighting fixtures.
As business progressed, the company branched into additional forms of electrical operations which ultimately increased in a total electrical service business. Today, we offer these services to industrial complexes, shopping centers and institutional buildings, including schools, colleges and libraries, churches and banking facilities.
Our second location was at 4250 Milwaukee Avenue and we remained there until 1965 when the company was moved into its present site at 625 Pratt Boulevard, Elk Grove Village, Illinois.
Wigdahl Electric Company leans heavily in the area of industrial development, handling all phases of electrical contracting for new buildings. We also do a considerable amount of renovation work on existing structures. Total computer installations are a specialty as is the completion of machinery connectors. Our company also excels in the finalization of U.P.S (uninterrupted power sources). The wiring of banks, relative to their total alarm safety factors is another electrical adaptation performed by the organization. Electric heating has become a continuously growing facet of the business world. Constant use by many industrial and institutional facilities because of reduced rates, have resulted in many system changes through our services of conversion.
