meet the arnold & blevins of arnold & blevins.
Blevins Electric Company was founded by L.T. Blevins in the early 1960s. His admiration for electrical work began in the 1940s in the Navy and continued with Diffy Electric in Newport, Arkansas. From there he began Blevins Electric Company which focused on residential and small commercial wiring. In 1974 Bill Arnold began working with him as his apprentice and the business has grown tremendously from there.
In the late 1970s, Blevins Electric Company became recognized for its quality work and customer satisfaction. This began a growing trend which brought on the hiring of new employees, some of which are still with the company today. This expansion brought about the partnership of Arnold and Blevins Electric Company which was formed in 1987.
At Arnold and Blevins we take a lot of pride in our work and strive to be the standard in Arkansas. Bill Arnold, CEO, feels that giving the customer an above quality job at a fair price separates Arnold and Blevins from the rest. He also feels that operating by the golden rule is crucial to our success so we try to treat others as we would want to be treated. This philosophy has been our key to success and will continue to be in the years to come.
Serving the Natural State from two locations.
Arnold & Blevins has been working and growing in central Arkansas for almost 50 years. During that time, our company has been fortunate enough to experience many years of success and growth. We opened an NWA location in Springdale in 2014, and now employ approximately 200 electricians and apprentices between our two locations. Our Northwest Arkansas branch has its own on-site apprentice program and has been a tremendous success.
We at James H. Cone, Inc. have worked hand in hand with Arnold & Blevins Electric for over 30 years. During that time, we have done many different types of projects including multi-million dollar educational facilities, churches, banks and a wide variety of other types of projects. Throughout those projects, Arnold & Blevins has been an electrical contractor that we can trust and that does quality work at a fair price. I would not hesitate to recommend them and consider them both good friends, and a great company.
