About Precision Motor & Pump Services
We launched in January 1946 under the name Precision Electric Company and the vision of Virgil W. Dake, who fine-tuned his repair and mechanical skills at a large cotton-seed oil mill. Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and powered by grit and skills, Virgil built up a small repair shop on Jackson Street on Phoenix, where we still are today.
WWII ended about a year later, leaving America short on raw materials including copper. New electric motors were a scarce commodity when the city of Phoenix converted its electrical power system from 25 to 60 cycles. Precision Electric jumped in to rewind motors and help customers comply with the new power system. Always focused on customer service and quality workmanship, Precision grew slowly but steadily.
In 1949, Virgil signed the company’s first distributor agreement with Delco Electric Motors, one of the largest manufacturers of electric motors in the country at the time. Precision went on to partner with General Electric, Century Electric, Baldor, Universal Electric Motors, and Emerson Electric Motors.
Virgil’s son, Don Dake joined Precision Electric full time in 1970 with a degree from Arizona State University. Don and Virgil went into partnership and later incorporated the business in 1974. Virgil retired two years later, and Don took the helm with a vision of growth. He established Precision Electric–Mesa in 1981, and then purchased Jongeward Electric (Yuma) in 1983, bought Ranch & Home (Tucson) in 1985, and established Precision Electric Controls in 1991.
Precision’s focus grew to motors and pumps, but the company’s devotion to customers and family never changed.
Ron Dake, Virgil’s grandson, has been with Precision his entire career, rising from counter sales to general manager. The company named Ron vice president in 1999 after he graduated from Arizona State University.
Consistently expanding our capabilities but maintaining Virgil’s values, Precision Motor & Pump Services continues to grow with dedication to customer service for motors and pumps.
