Let us power your innovation.

There was a time when a handshake was a promise, and a promise was sacred. There was a time when people not only knew the Golden Rule, but they lived by it. There was a time when integrity was valued above everything else.

At LL Vann Electric, we still believe in these values of the past, and we have combined them with state-of-the-art technology to unite the best of both worlds: old-fashioned values with modern day technology. As one of the largest local electrical contractors in the Raleigh-Durham area, we provide an extensive array of electrical installation services.

Founded by Joan and Leland Vann in 1987, our company is where engineering meets artistry, where innovation meets state-of-the-art technology, and where old-fashioned principles of quality service have been hallmarks of our business philosophy for decades.
