Our History

From the start, Dixie played an important role in the life of the city.

Electricity was still relatively new to Montgomery when Dixie opened its doors in 1908. Introduced a mere 20 years before, the new kind of power lighting up the city drew the attention of a young man named Peter W. Crump. 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 ten decades, so did Crump’s company.

Current presidents, John & Noble Yelverton conduct business with the same pride and tradition of service that their grandfather, J. Noble Crump adhered to for six decades. Serving as Vice Presidents are Jimmy Jehle, and Rodney King.

Over the years, we were often asked who we would recommend for plumbing, air conditioning, and heating services. Since people obviously wanted a high-quality, reliable and fair minded company to work with – we decided to take up the call. Dixie Electric & Plumbing was born in 2012, followed by Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air in 2014. 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? Yelverton hopes to continue the company’s pattern of steady, sustainable growth. He believes the way to do that hasn’t changed. It’s still to take good care of his employees and customers.
