Family owned and operated in Bergen County, New Jersey since the early 1980’s, Benson Ver Hage Electric is a classic Mom and Pop business. Rich and Doris Ver Hage bought the business in 1984 and quickly made it their own. Working side by side, after Rich spent years working as an electrician and manager for others, they grew this business into the multifaceted company it is today. By bringing in two of their sons, they were able to expand not only the workload but also the area they could cover. The business began in Closter, NJ and now has offices in Midland Park, NJ and Wyckoff, NJ. We operate our business out of Bergen County, but we service all of New Jersey and parts of New York and Pennsylvania. By keeping this a family business the family values are strong in the company. The family’s strong work ethic makes for availability to their customers twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, if an emergency were to arise after hours. The family’s moral values assure customers a safe, clean, and friendly experience. All of our employees are fully trained and also believe in the same standards. An owner is only a phone call away for any customer who wants to speak or meet with them.
