Created on the "old" principles of business, your word and your handshake, RKR has provided quality electrical contracting services to the Louisville Metro and Southern Indiana area for 23 years. 

While maintaining that same sense of integrity, RKR has adapted to the use of new technology by implementing a paper trail with contracts, lien releases, and change orders to keep all proceedings legal and documented.  We have completely computerized the accounting and estimating, along with emailing of quotes, bills etc. to make things easier on general contractors and customers.

We strive to provide quality work in every job whether large or small.  With projects such as the renovations at Water Tower Square, The Quadrangle, JC Penney’s remodel in Greentree Mall, and many other highly visible local projects, RKR contributes to the growth of the area.

Our ownership and employees take great pride in staying abreast of new technology and trends.  We rely on vendors to present new labor saving and energy efficient products, we educate our installers, and we attend trade shows on new technology both locally and nationally . By staying knowledgeable of the change and innovation in our industry, we are better able to provide quality and efficient work for our customers. 


Our company is very proud of our staff of 18 employees who include five graduates of the four year IEC apprenticeship program, one instructor at the IEC school, and 2 current students.


Vice President Susan Cox has been the chapter president for the IEC of Kentucky & Southern Indiana, and currently sits on their executive committee as treasurer.  She has also been a regional director over 13 states, Awards Committee chairperson, and currently sits on the Government Affairs committee at the national level of the IEC.  Susan serves as secretary of the Providence Alumni Association and is Troop leader for 3 Girl Scout troops in Louisville.

President Dennis Ettel is a 4th degree Knight of Columbus and organizes the K of C fish fry’s at St. Michael’s Church in Charlestown.  Dennis also volunteers his time at Providence High School doing gratis work and helping with the football team.  In January 2008 the Providence Alumni Association bestowed the Outstanding Alumni Award to Dennis.
