Our Company's History


Williamson Electrical Service was founded by Master Electrician Ronald J. Williamson in 1974. Ron Williamson developed his work ethic and business experience from working for his father who operated a oil and heating contracting business in the Boston area. During the Korean War Ron went into the Air Force and gained his appreciation for electronics being a technician repairing and servicing radio transmitters and Radar electronic devices on a remote island near Okinawa. After his Air Force hitch Ron started a family of eight children and went to work for Portsmouth Navel Shipyard. There he became one of the first nuclear submarine electronics technicians having a hand building the USS Nautilus and many of the other early US nuclear submarines. In the early 1960's Ron and his family moved to Vermont where he started worked for IBM and then later Simmond's Precision. With the dream of wanting to be his own boss Ron left and started his own business in 1974, Williamson Heating and Electric. After a few years Ron no longer offered heating work and was devoted to electrical services full time. Over the years he trained several young men as apprentices and was proud of them when they completed their training and received their licenses. In 1988, Peter Crosby joined the company. Peter brought to the company a diverse background in mechanics, electrical production, purchasing and management skills. He worked in the field under the mentoring of Ron and to this day values the good times and experiences in the electrical business. Ron retired in October 1995, selling the business to Peter. Since then, Williamson Electrical Service, Inc. has successfully completed many diverse projects and is still offering quality service to its long time customers. During Ron's retirement  he continued to train other future electricians with the State of Vermont Electrical Apprentice Program. In August 1999, Ron Williamson passed away leaving a legacy of a company that still produces quality.
