Our History

In 1944 our founder Melvin Ulteig started lighting things up through his vision to bring electricity to the Upper Midwest. Today, over 75 years later, Ulteig continues to expand our vision, serving clients in North America, offering solutions across four Lifeline Sectors® – Power, Renewables, Transportation and Water – and through the dedicated work of over 800 employee-owners. Whether 1944 or today, we have never lost sight of the deep commitment Mel had to clients, to collaboration and to solutions that make a difference.

As part of Ulteig’s ongoing commitment to meet or exceed client safety standards and practices, all employees undergo yearly safety training field training prior to working in the field. Our General Safety Committee provides a dynamic internal website, an informative monthly blog, and employee discussions to keep health and safety at the forefront of everything we do.
