LeGrand Robbins founded Robbins Electric 1910. LeGrand was involved in general maintenance in the Salt Lake Valley and was one of the few who had a working knowledge of electricity. He found himself being contacted by an ever increasing number of residents and companies to install electric lights in their homes and businesses.

As a result, he launched his business from his home in the Avenues where he had to have two phone lines because the city had two phone companies, each serving one half of the city. In the years that followed he trained several of his sons in the trade. As a result, Waterloo Electric was established by his son Don and another son W.P. "Phil" Robbins went on to establish Central Electric Company in 1934.

The Central Electric technician supplied all parts and labor at reasonable cost. Work was started and finished on schedule. New cables were run from the new electrical box to the new driveway control box. A snow sensor was installed. All systems worked without problems. Nice Job. Full review ›
