About Us


Vanalt Electrical Construction, Inc. was formed in April of 1997.  Functionally however, the company is the continuation, under new name and ownership, of an organization that had performed electrical construction in the transit market from 1980 to 1997, previously as both Vanalt Co., Inc. and Vanalt Construction.

Vanalt’s sole focus is to provide electrical construction services for the transit industry. Vanalt has annual sales of between $15 and $30 million in this market and a bonding capacity of $200 million.  Current and recent customers include SEPTA, the Delaware River Port Authority, New Jersey Transit, Amtrak, PennDOT and DDOT (Washington DC).  Vanalt performs work both as a prime contractor and subcontractor and has participated in numerous joint ventures including taking the role of managing partner.  Geographically, the majority of Vanalt’s work has been in Pennsylvania and New Jersey; however, Vanalt has done projects in several other states and DC.

As a union electrical contractor, Vanalt has agreements with I.B.E.W. chapters that are located in the areas where the company operates.  Vanalt has both linemen and electricians who are assigned work based on union jurisdictions.  Each project is managed by a collaborative team consisting of a project manager and a field superintendent or general foreman.  The project manager is responsible for the engineering, quality assurance, administrative and financial aspects of the project and the superintendent or general foreman is in charge of field personnel, safety, tooling and equipment.  Planning, scheduling, and other duties are shared.  Vanalt’s four project managers and four superintendents all have many years of experience in the type of work that Vanalt performs.  The company also has two full-time mechanics and an engineering and office staff to support the project management and field operations.
