History

Action Electrical Contractors Edmonton

In 1973 Don Bunting was just a young man in Sherwood Park with a growing family to provide for. Don was a naturally gifted craftsman with a strong aptitude for business. Relying on his innate skills in order to feed four hungry boys, Don created his own electrical company right in his own basement - Action Electrical. 

Don soon realized the high demand for his electrical contractor services. It was only a few years later the demand became so high Don needed to expand. He bought his own building and never looked back.

Over the years Action Electrical naturally grew to where "it had to go" (as Don puts it). "The truth is we were never just an electrical service company, we did whatever had to be done. When no other contractor would do lighting maintenance or a small repair project, we would be the business that would never say no." Other contractors even refer clients to Action when they don't want to take a job. 

Don Bunting made a very smart move never refusing a client or job. Beyond a stunning reputation, he has crafted a company that is full-service and offers complete electrical contractor services of the highest quality from beginning to end. In other words, a one stop shop. "It has allowed us to create the capacity to do far more than the average electrical contractor" Don (humbly) notes. 

Action Electrical: Contractor of the Year

This mentality has landed Action Electrical with Alberta Venture's 2016 Contractor of the Year Award. This award recognizes contractors that go above in beyond in not only the trade, but in customer service, innovation, organization and community.

Action Electrical has progressed into three specific divisions for sake of efficiency and expertise: projects, service and TEGG maintenance. All of these divisions are managed independently and are sustainable on their own, but also work closely with the other divisions. There is a lot of overlap with shared resources, skill and knowledge.

"It has been a pleasure to work with Action Electrical as one of the contractors qualified to work on our open order Electrical Service and Maintenance Contract. The team at Action Electrical provides professional service that meets our needs."

- Michael Desautels, Electrical Foreman at the City of Edmonton
