Serving Southern Alberta since 1986
Van Rijn Electric Ltd. was founded in February of 1986 by brothers, Hank and Jack Van Rijn, after their previous employer closed operations due to financial reasons. The company began working out of a double car garage on Hank’s farm, and their office was located at Jack’s home in Coaldale. In 1991, having outgrown the farm shop, the brothers built a new facility at 1907 – 18th Ave. Coaldale with a workshop, offices, three rental bays and a Shell service station.
The business prospered, and in 2006, Van Rijn Electric sold its 18th Avenue location, and moved to a newly renovated shop at 1431 13 Street in Coaldale, where the company continues operations to this day.
Hank retired in 2015, and Jack continued to operate the business contributing to the ongoing success of Van Rijn Electric Ltd. until deciding it was time for himself to begin enjoying the wonderful world of retirement in August of 2020.
On August 1st, 2020 Van Rijn Electric along with their staff have joined the team at Neu-Lite Electric Inc. and together they will continue to provide exceptional, full scale electrical and automation services to their clients. Van Rijn Electric will remain local to Coaldale in the well known establishment they’ve been in since 2007. With the ability to expand our reach even further, share the abundance of knowledge, skills, and years of experience – this was a win-win situation, and a way to ensure the excellent reputation the Van Rijn brothers spent years pouring their hearts into, would remain intact.
Taking over the reins as the General Manager here at Van Rijn, is Mr. Adam Dees! Prior to this new endeavor, Adam successfully ran his very own electrical company right here in Southern Alberta, before joining team Neu-Lite as a Master Electrician & Project Foreman. Aside from his endless electrical knowledge, and obvious skills in the trade, upon first meeting with Adam, you’ll see he has the friendliest demeanor, a very positive attitude, and the greatest professional and personable combination! We couldn’t imagine a more perfect fit for the company!
