Security Systems in the Joplin, MO & Surrounding Area

Touchton Electric & Alarms, Inc.

Serving the residents of Pittsburg, KS since 1969. Touchton provides Security Systems in the Joplin, MO and Pittsburg, KS areas. Touchton Electric offers a diversified array of security services, including residential and commercial security systems, fire alarms, camera systems, access control systems, and network cabling.

In 1969, Elijah “Touch” Touchton was discharged from the United States Air Force after serving for eight years, including one year in Vietnam. After being discharged, Touch, Doris and their daughter Janet moved to Pittsburg, Kansas. Touch’s goal was to attend Pittsburg State University and to become an electrician.  While attending classes, he also worked part-time for R.E. Emerson until graduation.

Touch started his own business, Touchton Electric Service, in 1972, doing residential and commercial wiring. A classmate, Floyd Crain, worked with Touch as an electrician. Another classmate, Phil Lane, became the office manager. When Phil retired, Wanda Nickle was the office manager for many years.

In the early years of the business, “Butch” Emerson was Touch’s “coach”. He was available at any time of day or night to answer questions or offer advice. He was a good friend and an important part of Touchton Electric becoming an established business.

I would like to thank Touchton Alarms for their great service and excellent customer service. I was left without an alarm at my business and was unable to get customer service through my other company. I called Touchton Alarms, and they had me up and running with my alarm. I would highly recommend Touchton Alarms to any business or homeowner. They have proven to me to be the BEST.

Thank you Touchton Alarms again for making sure that my business was safe and secure.
