WB Electric was founded by Walter Bevilacqua, a electrical contractor with more than 25 years of experience in the industry. Walt grew up around construction sites as his father and uncle were masons and his grandfather was a carpenter and cabinet maker. He has always loved seeing a set of drawings evolve from a project to a structure and finally to a family home or business.
Instead of moving directly into construction as a tradesman, Walter went to Tech School and then on to Penn State, majoring in industrial automation. He graduated in the late ’80s and worked for a few years constructing cell phone towers as the nation’s cellular networks expanded across the country. Through the ’90s he worked for two engineering firms, one with concentrations in Industrial Automation and one in Architectural/Engineering as well as High Voltage design, testing and troubleshooting, offering his expertise both nationally and internationally.
In 2000, Walter started a family and made it back to construction. Today, he is one of the most successful electrical contractors in Northeastern PA, with a client list including Pocono international raceway, Air Gas, Penn’s Peak, The Times News, Tractor Supply Company, Braden Airpark (Lehigh Valley International Airport), Martin Guitars, and some of the highest quality homebuilders operating in the area. His company offers industrial, residential and commercial electrical contracting, sustainable energy consulting, sales and installation for solar energy systems.
Today, the company has an engineering office on Highway 903 in Penn Forest Township, Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania and serves Carbon County, Monroe County, the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas.
