Dyer Electric was started in 1946 in the backyard of Phoenix residents W.E. and Modena Dyer, who built the company from the ground up. Their motto was “no job too small.”
Their children—Vic, Phil and Pam—all grew up in the family business, working at “the shop.” Soon a third generation would join them, including Phil’s children, Ryan Christi and Shawn, and Vic’s sons, Thomas and Will.
“Our family is very blessed to have had a mom and dad who taught us what a good work ethic is,” Vic said. “Over the years, Dyer Electric has been a great opportunity for my brother Phil and myself. We both made our careers at Dyer Electric and we were very fortunate.”
On June 11, 2018, Phil Dyer passed away. He was president of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) for many years, and Dyer Electric was a union shop out of IBEW Local 640.
“My dad told me I would know when it’s time to hang it up. Sadly, that time has arrived,” Vic said.
As of December 2018, Vic Dyer and Marty Wood, superintendent for Dyer Electric, will retire. Office Manager Dona Dolezal, who has been with the company for 25 years, will continue under the Dyer Electric name and phone number.
“I would like to thank all of our customers for their support over the years, as well as current and former employees,” Vic said. “You are the reason we served the Valley for 72 years. Our family takes pride in the reputation we have built.”
