In 1911, Uihlein Electric began as the exclusive electrical contractor for Schlitz, one of Milwaukee’s “founding breweries” and once one of the world’s leading breweries. In construction, Uihlein Electric is synonymous with Milwaukee, just as Schlitz was in the brewing scene.

Much has changed over the 100 years we’ve served Milwaukee’s business community, but one thing remains – our dedication to your construction and facilities management projects. Uihlein has grown with the city and its skyline, working on notable buildings in the commercial landscape such as Miller Park, Harley-Davidson, Rockwell Automation, City Hall, Columbia St. Mary’s, MSOE, UWM and Potawatomi Hotel and Casino. We are grateful to have been part of these and other landmark projects.
