Company History

Gallaher & Associates, Inc. was founded in 1973 by Roy Gallaher as a rep firm carrying a variety of electrical manufacturers with products ranging from fire alarm systems to power distribution and lighting sold to end users and electrical contractors.

​Shortly thereafter, the strategic decision was made to concentrate on fire alarm systems in Middle and East Tennessee with installation and service becoming additional offerings to benefit the client. 

One of several early milestones that helped Gallaher significantly grow its reputation was the successful completion of the fire alarm systems installation in the high-profile Chinese and Korean Pavilions at the 1982 World’s Fair.

In 1993, Gallaher had grown to a total of 19 employees and broke the $1M sales mark for the first time.  In the same year, Roy’s son Tom joined the company full-time after graduating from Radford University with a BBA in operations management and mathematics minor.  The vision was to use Tom’s efforts to grow the company in areas outside fire and begin the long road of preparing a second generation family ownership plan.

20 Years

In 2007, Gallaher’s convenient access to Pellissippi Parkway and Alcoa Highway led to the decision to perform a major expansion and renovation to its existing facility in response to the major growth. Since many of the solutions Gallaher offers are difficult to paint in the customer’s mind, a high-end expansion was constructed to bring potential customers into our facility and demonstrate the technology solutions we represent.  The office space was carefully designed to utilize various individual systems but also to show the benefits of integrating independent technologies with a simple user interface.  Combined with the existing area, the total office and warehouse facility now totals more than 23,000 sq ft.

In February 2010, Gallaher purchased an 18,000 sq ft, 3 year-old facility in Rossville, GA just 1.5 miles south of the state line.  This facility follows in the mentality of having a show place for potential customers to see the benefits of our technology in action and used by our own people.  With the Chattanooga branch’s 21 dedicated employees bringing in over $3M in revenues in 2011 and with key accounts like Alstom Power and Amazon requiring continual attention, this investment will lend itself for significant growth.

2008’s milestone elevated Gallaher to an elite level given that only .004% (1/4th of 1%) of the 28 million businesses in the US reaches the $10M mark.  Furthermore, Gallaher’s market share in East Tennessee is far and away greater than its competition.

$10 Million

In 2010, Tom Gallaher became President and CEO with the plan of maintaining his father’s value system and standards of excellence.

Currently in our 44th year of serving our clients and communities, Gallaher averages over 750 projects each year and has provided technology to numerous other commercial, manufacturing, educational, and medical facilities from Nashville, TN to Asheville, NC and from Roanoke, VA to Dalton, GA.
