PEWAUKEE, Wis. (January 4, 2021) – Edge Electric and A&J Electrical Contractors announced that they have merged to form one company as of January 1, 2021. The new company will operate under the Edge Electric name.

Edge Electric has been in business since 2011, serving the electrical needs of southeastern Wisconsin. Its licensed electricians offer the full spectrum of electrical services with a specialty in commercial work. Edge’s success and longevity in the industry has been a result of the team’s continued dedication to providing customers with quality work on time and within budget, with a focus on safety. Edge is headquartered in Pewaukee, Wis., and is led by Nathan Stoppenbach, the company’s president.

A&J Electrical Contractors was formed in 1984 and subsequently purchased in 2015 by Jay Humbert, who has served as its president since that time. Located in Waukesha, Wis., A&J is a full-service electrical contractor specializing in single- and multi-family residential work. Its electricians have served homeowners, businesses, and property owners across the greater Milwaukee region. A&J’s focus on excellent customer service, quick response times, and honest, upfront pricing have enabled it to become a leading service provider for the area.

The merger strengthens Edge’s position in the electrical service market and provides advantages to customers of both companies. Edge’s expertise in the commercial sector coupled with A&J’s expertise in the residential sector provides advantageous synergies. By combining workforces, resources, and capabilities, the teams are able to offer a more diverse, comprehensive range of services. Furthermore, Edge will now employ more than 70 team members. With more licensed electricians under one roof, Edge can continue to deliver on its promise of fast, professional service.

“We’re thrilled to join forces with Jay and the A&J team,” said Nathan Stoppenbach, the owner and president of Edge. “The merger diversifies our service offerings and provides a competitive advantage that will help us better serve our customers. This is a move designed to ensure Edge’s success and longevity.”

Jay Humbert, the former owner of A&J and the new vice president of Edge added, “This is an opportunity to strengthen our relationships with existing customers and expand into new markets. I’m proud of the great work and reputations of both companies, and combining our teams is a smart way to capitalize on our strengths.”

Edge will continue to operate out of its existing office in Pewaukee. Stoppenbach will continue as president, with Humbert of A&J joining him as vice president. More information about Edge and its service offerings can be found on the company website: edgeelectricwi.com.
