Huneke Enterprises, LLC is an electrical/HVAC contracting company based in Waxahachie, TX. Though most of our jobs are within the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, we have jobs all over the state; primarily doing commercial or industrial work. We have been in business since 1998 and have steadily grown.
Joseph Huneke, a Master Electrician, began the company working by himself doing small jobs around the area as a second job. His 'first job' was working as the head electrician at Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU), which he credits for helping to give him the opportunity to build the company while being available to them 24/7. The relationships he made while being on staff there helped him get to where he has gotten to. Combining the opportunity SAGU provided with his eagerness to excel, hardworking spirit, and willingness to do what he has to in order to get a job done, is what made him stand out from others. As Joseph began taking on bigger projects a few years later, he began acquiring 'extra hands' a little at a time. In the past 20+ years, the company has had times where the employee count was above 100 - though they try to keep an average of about 50 well qualified employees - which helps to embrace the 'small company/family' environment. Joseph has enjoyed seeing his visions of growth come to pass. Though he is not as hands-on in the field as he was the first few years, he uses his 40+ years of electrical experience to make sure things are done right; in regards to both the technical work and the work ethic behind the work.
Laurie Vicalvi filled in as a 'temporary secretary' in the spring of 2004 when Joseph's part-time secretary had to move. Having just graduated college and being pregnant with their first child, she initially stepped in until Joseph could find a new permanent secretary; taking advantage of the fact that they had already transformed the upstairs of their house into a little office, which enabled her to ‘work from home’. Within just a few months, and after training herself how to use a new accounting program, she fell in love with the 'behind-the-scenes' aspects of the contracting trade. She found a passion handling the day-to-day financial responsibilities of running a business, and wholeheartedly chose to keep doing what she was doing; ultimately helping the company grow alongside Joseph. Taking advantage of the ‘flexibility’ of being a business owner, along with the technological advances of being able to remotely access the office computer, Laurie took the step to fulfill her heartfelt desire to serve our country by joining the Army Reserves in 2005. She came to believe that the structure, attention-to-detail, and leadership qualities she learned and continues to learn through her Army training and experiences, have been a huge asset when implementing as a business owner. Though her plate is very full, Laurie feels blessed that she has the opportunity to do two things she thoroughly loves to do – serve her country and help Huneke Enterprises thrive.
Joseph and Laurie enjoy working as a team to provide the best for not only their two kids, but also for their 'family' of employees and customers. They have learned to use the strengths and weaknesses the Lord has given each of them to complement each other, enabling their company to have a strong foundation.
Huneke Enterprises, LLC takes pride in the relationships we have built with our fellow subs and GC's. Having integrity, doing what's right, taking care of our employees, and blessing others, has helped us accomplish all that we have.
Please feel free to look at the jobs we have had the opportunity to accomplish, or to check into some of the organizations that we support. We are always looking to meet more General Contractors and clients - in the hopes to show them the quality work we can perform, or to point someone in the right direction of an organization they may be willing to invest in.
