Elliott Electric Service Inc. was organized in 1946 by its founder, Thomas R. (Bim) Elliott, Sr. The business operated for its first 20 years out of the basement of his residence and employed three to five employees. For the first fifteen years it operated as an electrical and plumbing contractor.
In 1959, the plumbing end of the business was sold to Irvin Murphy. Bim’s son, Tommy joined the business in 1966. Needing extra space, in 1969, the Elliott business relocated to 205 Webster Street, South Boston (its present office location). The father/son team gradually converted the business from residential to commercial and industrial, and later institutional.
In 1986, T. Chris Elliott (Tommy’s oldest son) joined the business and was soon joined by his younger brother, Kevin, who came on board in 1989. Both sons are a vital part of the business, Chris worked the field in the electrical department before coming into the office as part time estimator and finally as Chief Financial Officer. Kevin works in the HVAC department as a technician.
Following the death of Bim in 1989, Tommy became the Chief Executive Officer. He, teamed with his wife Linda, built on the laurels of Bim and built the company to the strength that it is today
In 2001 the company hired Tim Davis to be the electrical department manager. His years of experience in the area helped the company to grow into the largest electrical contractor in South Boston.
In 2012, Elliott Electric hired Jeff Shelton to be the Branch Manager of their new Danville Office. His approach will help Elliott Electric to be a leader in the Danville and Pittsylvania County area.
Presently Elliott Electric has a workforce of over 75 employees with a strong outlook to the future. The Elliott Company maintains a main office at 205 Webster Street, South Boston, a satellite office at 201 Ragland Street, South Boston, Virginia and a branch office at 604 Wilson Street, Danville, Virginia. The Danville location has over 15,000 square feet of space.
