Flashback to the year 1945. A 17-year-old Robert Tiner becomes the youngest master plumber in the state of Texas. Tiner lays the foundation for what will evolve into one of the most reputable home-service providers in Dallas-Fort Worth. Originally, Tiner partnered with two brothers whose last name was actually Baker; he and his team focused on providing quality plumbing while the Baker brothers specialized in insurance. After several successful years of growth, Tiner bought the company outright but kept the Baker Brothers name as an ode to his former business partners and to continue to build the brand in the local area. Now in its third generation of being family owned and operated, Baker Brothers is pleased to announce the celebration of its 75th anniversary. From 1945 to present day, Baker Brothers has continued to proudly serve the community with the same type of superior quality service originally envisioned by Tiner.
In honor of this milestone anniversary, Baker Brothers will conduct a year-long campaign to captivate the customers and the community that have made the company successful for so many years. Baker Brothers will share its extensive history over the course of the year through its initiative — 75 Days of Baker. This campaign will feature stories on the history of the company, as well as special limited-time offers for customers. In addition, Baker Brothers and its employees will be collecting and donating a total of 7,500 cans for local charities Dallas Life and North Texas Food Bank.
Through the years, the company has expanded its specialties from plumbing to now include heating and cooling services as well as electrical services. The Baker Brothers' legacy continues by staying committed to its core values of "Trust, Quality, and Care" to ensure customer and employee satisfaction. Baker Brothers is home to 262 employees who strive to make customers feel like family by meeting their needs at the highest level. It is also part of the mission of Baker Brothers to give back to the community it serves and beyond, by partnering with various charities to help feed the homeless, draw water wells in Africa, and volunteer resources to no-kill animal shelters.
Third-generation company president, Jimmie Dale Jr, said "It is with great pride that I can say we've been in business for 75 years! Since our inception in 1945 as a small plumbing company specializing in leak locates, we were the first plumbing company to utilize a camera to help locate the leaks. Seventy-five years later the same spirit of innovation and relentless commitment to customer service allows us to not only meet the plumbing needs of our customers but also provide additional services in HVAC and Electrical."
The Baker Brothers family is grateful for the opportunities it has had to serve and make a difference in the lives of others in the community.
