Jim Appleton founded the company in 1976 with his son, James, to take care of the bookkeeping while he worked full-time at the phone company and his 16-year-old grandson, Mike, who worked alongside him in the company’s single service truck. This family-owned business has flourished over the last four and a half decades with now 4 generations of Appleton’s working together. Today, the business has grown to include a fleet of service trucks and approximately 90 employees.
When asked about the company’s history and evolution, Mike Appleton, now president of Appleton Campbell stated “I remember how my Grandfather treated his customers. He always went the extra mile and reminded me often that we were guests in other people’s homes. Integrity, trust and quality service were important to him. I am proud that during our growth we have been able to maintain those principles for 45 years.”
A core belief at Appleton Campbell is taking care of employees who will in turn take great care of its customers. Technicians are continually trained in product knowledge and customer service so that they can provide an exceptional experience.
