After World War ll, Tom Piper worked for several electrical companies both large and small in and around Toronto.
It was in 1948 that Tom decided he wanted to work for himself and Piper Electric was founded in Toronto's east end.
Tom was very instrumental in the setting up of the licensing of electricians in Toronto and was very proud to be offered the
original Metropolitan Toronto licence number of E2, which today the company still operates under.
It was not until the late '80's that Tom garnered a partner in the well established business, that being the
second youngest of his six children, Tom Jr. Affectionately known to their many repeat customers as
the Tom & Tom show, the two ran the company together until Tom Sr.s death in 1995. Tom Jr. continues the company
to this day.
Although the company moved their location to Richmond Hill in 1999 they still offer the same great service in
the city of Toronto and surrounding area's.
Piper Electric still has the same phone number (416-461-8134) today as they did the day they opened business,
except back then, well over 50 years ago, the phone number was known as HO.8134 (the HO standing for the old Howard exchange).
