From the start, Dixie played an important role in the life of the city.
Teddy Roosevelt was president and for the first time a ball was dropped in Times Square to celebrate New Year’s. The year was 1908 when Dixie opened its doors in Montgomery. It was a mere 20 years after a new kind of power began lighting up the city. A young man named Peter W. Crump saw electricity’s exciting potential and proceeded to form Montgomery’s first electrical contracting company.
It maintained Montgomery’s trolley system, the first electricity-powered streetcar system in the U.S. It installed wiring and performed electrical maintenance and repairs in homes and businesses around town. As the town grew and prospered over the next 10 decades, so did Crump’s company.
Current presidents John & Noble Yelverton are proud of the history Dixie represents and you can learn more about who we are in this video:
Rest assured that we are not just “electricians who became plumbers and HVAC technicians.”. Each expertise is a separate skill and we hired experienced plumbers and technicians, and then trained them on the “Dixie Difference” you’ve come to expect from our electricians.
Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air is proud of the fact that 75 to 80 percent of its service calls come from existing customers or people referred by customers. What lies ahead for Dixie? Noble and John Yelverton hope to continue the company’s pattern of steady, sustainable growth and believe the way to do that has not changed since 1908: take good care of Dixie’s employees and they will take good care of our clients.
