Wanex Electrical Services was established by Bruce Wanex in 1987 and was incorporated in 1993. Originally working out of his residence, he eventually built the current Headquarters in New Castle, DE in 1998. Wanex Electrical Services has been in continuous operation since its founding. Wanex Electrical Services is a certified Veteran-Owned Small Business, as Bruce Wanex proudly served his country in the U.S. Coast Guard. He was honorably discharged in 1983, afterwards he went to the University of Delaware on the GI Bill. He currently holds Master Electricians licenses in DE, MD, NJ, PA, and VA. He is one of the fifty-six inaugural NABCEP Certified PV installers in the world. He has maintained the certification since November 2003.
Wanex Electrical Services promotes Safety First as our #1 priority. There is no greater task at this company than to be safe. Not only to work safely, and to look out for the safety of those around you. Everyone gets to go home at the end of their shift.
The company participates in the State of Delaware Apprenticeship Program, along with other training programs. All new employees are required to go through a 2-day safety training program before going to work at a jobsite. All employees, new to the electrical field, are required to go through the FOUR-YEAR Delaware Apprenticeship Training program. We pay all costs of the program and support the apprentices throughout the process. We sponsor the Delaware Technical High School programs by hiring student Co-Op’s to work during their senior year. We also support the Delaware Skills Center program employing many successful program graduates.
Wanex Electrical Services provides quality work, done safely, while meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations and timelines. With over 30 years in the Commercial/Industrial business and nearly 20 years in the Green Energy field our experience shines. We maintain our company motto of “Installing Tomorrow’s Technologies Today” by adapting to new industries, materials, and techniques. We are always looking to be the leader for the next innovation.
Wanex Electrical Services opened an office in Frederick, MD in 2020, to support the growing need for a high quality, safety conscious electrical contractor in the rapidly developing area. We are maintaining our same original standards here, and are quickly deploying our safety, quality work and professionalism to our new customers and friends.
Wanex Electrical Services proudly donates to charities including Meals on Wheels, Police Athletic League, and New Castle Jaycees, to name a few. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, we sent multiple crews to support “Operation Blessing”, to do emergency electrical work for people that were unable to pay for it. Staying there for weeks, sleeping on cots in a church we recall as a tremendous opportunity to help those in a time of need.
