Community Involvement

Fountain Electric and Services believes in giving back to the communities it serves. We support organizations and programs that focus on developing effective youth leaders and helping neighbors in need.

75 Years

Fountain Services, LLC was established in 1946 by Woodrow Pollard Fountain. During World War II, Woodrow Fountain built switchboards and installed electrical systems on emergency naval ships to transport troops. At the end of the war, Woodrow Fountain moved to Rutherford County, NC, and started Fountain Electric Services. Fountain’s son Terry continued the business after Woodrow retired. Today, a third generation of Fountains takes charge, with Woodrow’s grandson Terry Fountain Jr. running the growing business.

@nc_governor announced last Friday that Fountain Electric & Services is the recipient of one of the 11 approved North Carolina Rural Infrastructure Authority (RIA) grants, totaling $4,989,034, to local governments. Fountain's grant will be used as part of their almost $2 million investment in the local community over the next 12 months. Fountain has already begun work on a new prefab building which will result initially in 20+ entry level jobs in assembly and manufacturing, growing to almost 40 positions including professional positions in engineering, plant management and human resources.
