Our History

Del Rau and Vic Horn started Rauhorn Construction. Gloria Rau gave the company its name, Rauhorn.


In July, Rauhorn Electric was formed. The first office was in the basment of Del and Goria’s home in Sterling Heights. In September of that same year, for $1,500, Del purchased the remaining 50% from his partner  to become the sole owner of the company.


Del purchased Rauhorn’s first bucket truck called a “Skyworker.” Rauhorn was prequalified with MDOT for electrical. The company also installed its first traffic signal at Telegraph and 13 Mile Road in Oakland County.


Rauhorn purchased its first building located at 24 Mile Road and Van Dyke.


Rauhorn expanded into a new 7800 sq ft building with 12 employees and a fleet of approximately 25 pieces of equipment.


Rauhorn was awarded its largest project for the company at the time, lighting up the runways of Detroit Metro Airport. The project started as a  $5.2 million dollar contract and expanded from there.


In February, Rauhorn moved to its facility on 23 Mile Road in Macomb Township. The company employed 70 people with 20,000 sq ft of room to grow.


Rauhorn began a leadership transformation and started a sub-station and line work division.


Del Rau assumed the role of CEO. Del’s son, Anthony Rau, became President.


Rauhorn moved into its current facility in Bruce Township. The new property includes 3 buildings totaling 48,000 sq ft. Rauhorn currently employs approximately 200 team members with a fleet of over 600 pieces of equipment.
