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 continued to prosper, 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 successfully, until deciding it was time that he join the wonderful world of retirement in August of 2020.

On August 1st, 2020 Van Rijn Electric, along with their staff, joined the team at Neu-Lite Electric Inc. and together they have continued to provide on-going exceptional, full-scale electrical and automation services to their clients, while continuing to operate from their Coaldale based shop. This has allowed us the opportunity to expand our reach even further, and given us the ability to share our knowledge, skills, and years of experience with each other in order to provide the greatest service for our beloved customers, while ensuring the excellent reputation the Van Rijn brothers spent years pouring their hearts into, would remain intact.
