As a dad welcoming his fourth child, John knew he needed to take his trade to the next level in order to provide for his family. Electricians were in high demand in Alberta, and he enjoyed the balance of textbook knowledge and technical skill necessary in electrical work. But, he knew he could create a truly great business and provide for his wife and boys by giving the people of Calgary a new, more affordable electrician with exceptional customer service. He founded 4 Star Electric as a sole proprietor working out of the Vannus family home. Over the last three decades, his tenacity and dedication have expanded 4 Star’s humble beginnings into a thriving business with 10 office staff and 18 field staff.
Despite our growth, we still cultivate the same welcoming, family culture our clients love. It’s John’s philosophy that the best work is accomplished alongside people whom you respect and treat as well as your own family, which is why our team members are expected to conduct themselves with courtesy and kindness towards each other and our clients.
We believe that family is always available — even when it’s 4AM. Power outages and electrical emergencies don’t just occur during the work week between 9 to 5, so whether you lose power in the middle of the night or on a Saturday afternoon, you can trust there will be someone at 4 Star ready to help.
Working alongside John, Dustin and Denny Vannus strive everyday to keep building on their father’s strong foundation. As a master electrician, Denny has enjoyed working with 4 Star’s clients for over 20 years. But beyond his Blue Seal and Professional Electrical Contractor’s certificate, it’s Denny’s positive attitude, great communication skills, and practical electrical knowledge that helps him thrive as 4 Star’s Operations Manager.
Together, the Vannus family and 4 Star Electric aim to deliver Calgarians all of their electrical needs with a smile. We are confident that our electricians can provide you with any and all electrical services, so let the 4 Star team give you a great experiences from your very first phone call and for years to come.
