Our History

In 1945 Franklin and Dorothy Speers arrived in Elora and set up their business in downtown Elora, in the location now occupied by Ostic Insurance. They operated a radio/TV, small appliance sales and service store. Shortly after, Franklin started wiring houses and farms, as hydro was introduced to the area. As the need for major appliances grew Franklin and Dorothy expanded across the street to the location formerly operated as The Desert Rose, now The Evelyn. They raised a family of seven children and eventually outgrew the premises.

In 1969, Jim joined the business and a new location was purchased, on the south side of Elora.  A new building was built to accommodate the inventory stored in 5 different locations around town.  New installations and service were added for chicken and turkey barns and dairy operations. Well pumps and related service were also added to the mix.

In 1972, another expansion occurred and a furniture department was added.  Furniture sales were brisk for about 11 years. Then the economy and other logistics caused us to close the furniture department in 1983. Its space became a rental premise, as it is today.

As the years passed, and our staff started to age and were looking at retirement (some of whom were with us for 35, 45 or 48 years) Jim’s son, Kyle took over the business in 2015.

Over the years, Hot tub installation and service, as well as plumbing (not offering plumbing service at this time), have also been added to our vast array of services.  To this day the team at Speers Electric pride themselves in the customer service, honesty and integrity that Franklin and Dorothy started Speers Electric with. We look forward to continuing the service tradition for many years to come.
