Our History - A Bright Future

Throughout our history, we have made our customers and employees our highest priority. We value honesty, partnerships and enduring relationships. This spirit was established by our founder, Richard Hunt, and continues in every aspect of our business today.

33 Years of Innovation
With humble beginnings, Richard Hunt founded Hunt Electric in 1986; working out of his home with a pick-up truck, a small set of tools and a few regular customers. The company set its roots on repeat business and word of mouth for growth and generating new business. Daytime was for field work; paperwork and estimating were done evenings and weekends. As orders increased, employees were hired one by one. Equipment and trucks were also purchased one piece at a time. The work ethic, the strong merit shop culture, the camaraderie, the quality consciousness and the general up beat “can do attitude" of our employees all stem from those early years.


The company is known for delivering technically-complex projects fast, without compromising quality or safety.


The past would not be complete without mentioning our loyal customers. Many have grown their business remarkably in the past two decades. As we have grown with them we have made a conscious effort to not lose that personal touch. Our customers know they can contact us on a small service call or a multi-million dollar electrical project. Both calls will be handled with the same sense of urgency and professionalism.



Today, we continue to serve a broad range of industries, providing expert service and collaboration on projects of virtually every scope and scale - not only from our Utah headquarters, but also in our Colorado office. In spite of this reach, we treat every project as if it is our only one, delivering responsive and hands-on service at every stage.

In each of the markets we serve we strive to be a comprehensive, knowledgeable and dedicated partner. As part of a team, we are the collaborative team player you need to achieve full project success. Hunt Electric has the best and most experienced team to meet your needs.
