Temple, Inc., located in Decatur, Alabama, is a family-owned company that’s been serving the South for over 65 years. In 1954, Carl Temple and his son Bill founded Temple & Son Electric Company in Gadsden, Alabama as an electrical contractor. The City of Gadsden soon called on Temple & Son to service and maintain its new, electro-mechanical traffic control signals, prompting the company’s start in the traffic industry.
Carl Temple retired in 1964, and Bill sold the contracting portion of the company, re-locating Temple & Son to Decatur in 1965. As the company prospered and grew, Bill’s sons learned the industry, too. Blake and Blair served in every area of the business, and have managed the company since 1983.
Relationship, guided by a commitment to outstanding service and a dedication to integrity, remains a guiding principle of Temple, Inc. Throughout the years, the people of Temple, Inc. have worked to develop enduring relationships with City, County, and State agencies, utility departments, traffic engineering firms, electrical services contractors, and vendor partners. Any success the company has enjoyed is due to the Lord’s provision and the great relationships of all the partners who’ve come alongside Temple over these past sixty years.
As Temple, Inc. begins its 65th year in business, the staff and management look forward to working alongside you as we meet the future's challenges and opportunities.
