Our History

Baumgartner's Electric, Inc. was originated in 1914 by James F. Pryde with ownership and management assumed by his nephew, Thomas A. Baumgartner, in 1952. His son, Gary A. Baumgartner, became associated with the firm in 1972 and has exercised full management since September 1989.

Gary, a Master Electrician since 1983, has enjoyed much local, regional and nation recognition for his work as an independent electrical contractor. Most notably are the elected positions of President of South Dakota Independent Electrical Contractors from 1994 through 1996 and the Independent Electrical Contractors National President for 2002.

Baumgartner's Electric, Inc. employs a highly skilled team of electricians. Our journeymen average 15 years of experience, ranging from 2 to 30 years each. Interest in working environment, job satisfaction and the progress of all our employees are just a few things that keep electricians as well as customers with Baumgartner's for many years.
