Williamson Electrical Company was founded in February 1944 by Edward A. Williamson on Walnut Street, Brookline Village, Massachusetts. Edward had been chief electrician in a steel mill in Seekonk, Massachusetts who then joined the "Frank Ridlon Company" in Boston as Shop Superintendent in 1939 where he remained until starting Williamson Electrical Company where he persuaded Ralph G. Quilty, a close friend of many years to join the company as a partner. Although Ralph was a chemical engineer and Director of Research for the H. M. Sawyer Company, Ralph liked the challenge that building up a new company presented. A partnership was formed, and on January 3rd, 1956, Williamson Electrical Company, Inc. was born.

Robert L. Tilton joined the company as Shop Foreman in October of 1956. Robert had served his apprenticeship in the Navy on a submarine tender and was well qualified for the position. Ralph's son, Ralph M. Quilty, joined the company in 1960, having had five years experience in the environmental laboratory at Sylvania Electric Co. In the early 1970's Robert's two sons, Robert Lee Tilton, Jr. and Brian K. Tilton, along with Ralph's son R. Scott Quilty, joined the company as service technicians. Over the next several years, they became experts in the electric motor, pump and air compressor installation and repair field. Robert Jr. secured his Journeyman Electricians License, and later his Master Electricians License under which the company presently operates.

Now under the exclusive management of the Tilton Family, Williamson Electrical Company began to grow, doubling its sales and workforce. Under the watchful eye of the Tilton family, the business has continued to grow. Several years later, the business became successful enough that it was necessary find a facility large enough to house our multi-million dollar inventory and repair shop. We believe that our move from our original location in Needham, to our current facility in Chelsea has enabled us to continue to grow and prosper not only in area of the products we are able to offer but, the repair shop and service departments’ ability to serve all of our customers whether residential or industrial.

Williamson New England Electric Motor Service Corporation, as it stands today, is still growing and thriving. We look forward to servicing all of your motor, pump & air compressor needs.
