Westhues Electric, Inc. is a Kansas City electrical contractor that has been focusing on commercial and industrial construction since 1986. Our expertise ranges from multi-million dollar new design build construction projects, to small office remodels.

Design Build

Westhues Electric works with many clients who understand the benefits of the design build process. We have found that this is a proven method for the owners to get what they want faster and at a more competitive price.

Through our design build methods, we work with the architect, engineer, contractor and owner to bring added value to the project and the owner’s vision. During the initial design stage we provide budgetary pricing, value engineering and constructability comments based on preliminary information. Whether you need total electrical design or design assist, count on Westhues Electric as an integral part of your Design/Build Team.

Data Center

Westhues Electric remains one of the foremost leading electrical contractors when it comes to critical power and data centers. Our experience and expertise with Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS), Continuous Power Systems (CPS), rectifiers, static switches, emergency power generating equipment and DC cabling has proved itself time and time again.

Whether you have a small office with a few servers or a nation-wide network with millions of customers, iron-clad reliability for data storage, web hosting and network communications is a critical must for all businesses in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.

Clients such as Sprint, Embarq, 1102 Grand Bldg., GSI, Socket Communications, Verizon and many other major telecom and web hosting companies rely on Westhues Electric to ensure the safety, reliability and redundancy of their systems.


For over three decades, Westhues Electric, Inc has been the leader in supermarket electrical construction, maintenance and service. Our customer base includes Price Choppers, Hy-Vee Food Stores, Aldi’s, Sunfresh stores, Festival Foods and many smaller grocery stores.

Our expertise lies in the refrigeration controls and termination. The five original owners started their electrical careers wiring primarily supermarkets and refrigeration controls. They were well trained with many years of experience before starting Westhues Electric. This skill and knowledge have been passed on to the next generation of electricians at Westhues Electric. In addition to the many local stores built in the Kansas City area, several of our customers request we travel regionally to build and service stores for them in the western Kansas area, Nebraska, southeast and northeast Missouri area and Iowa.

With this expertise in refrigeration controls, refrigeration contractors trust us to complete their service, repair and replacement on their equipment supplied to supermarkets, box stores, and cold storage warehouse facilities. These refrigeration companies include Hussmann, Design Mechanical and Fagan.
