Our Story

 

 
 

Tony Muska started Muska Electric in 1919 converting homes from gas lighting to electric. Since then, Muska Companies has maintained strategic, stable growth to become a 300-person industrial, commercial contractor. After Tony's son Bill moved the company into commercial and industrial contracting, the family sold the company to their employees in 1978, making Muska Companies the first ever employee-owned electrical contractor in the state of Minnesota. From site foremen to office admin, our employees are committed to your project's success. We're proud of our reputation as a strong, long-term partner. Our customers know they can count on us to not only handle their electric, plumbing and technology needs but also continually provide effective, innovative techniques to every project.

100 years & counting


 
 
 
 
We have enjoyed working with Muska Electric for many years, they bring experience, hard workers and the proper sized workforce to the job. They have worked on all levels of our electrical systems from low-voltage fire alarm and Energy Management system up to and including our 13,800 volt system on St. Olaf’s campus. On larger projects they have been a part of the entire process from the very beginning of concept and design to the very end when the job is complete. Throughout the entire job Muska Electric was a team player with St. Olaf College and the other contractors, I highly recommend Muska Electric.
