A Tradition of Excellence in Electrical Construction

Westphal & Company, Inc. has been a Family Business Center member since 2006 and we thank them for the years of family business knowledge they are able to bring to all of our programs.
When customers are asked what they think of Westphal & Company, Inc., two words come to mind: integrity and quality. These are principles that have been engrained in the foundation of Westphal & Co since it was first founded in 1931 by Fred H. Westphal.
Despite having been passed through multiple generations, Westphal & Co has always remained true to its founder’s principles. After Fred H., the company was managed by his son, Fred T., from 1959 until 1983. After his death, the company was managed by his sons John and Brett Westphal.
Today, John is the sole owner of Westphal & Co and is in charge of overall strategy as well as day-to-day operations. He has worked for the company since he was a teenager and has earned his role by completing his Bachelor of Business Administration degree in finance from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his State of Wisconsin Master Electrician certification.
While the third-generation of Westphals oversees the organization today, the company is prepared for the future as well, with fourth-generation Westphals Maiken, Fritz, and Gretchen all already working in the company.
