About Us

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, he moved to Pittsburg, Kansas with his family, where he attended Pittsburg State University and became an electrician.

Touch started his own business, Touchton Electric Service, in 1972, doing residential and commercial wiring. Within a few years, 111 North Broadway became the new home for Touchton Electric, Inc. Through the years the customer base has included residential and commercial customers as well as schools, churches, and business plants in Southeast Kansas and Missouri.

Several years later, residential and commercial alarm systems were introduced, and later, the installation of fire alarms and medical alerts. The title of Ademco Installation Dealer was given to the company and Touchton Alarms was added to the name of the business.

In 1994, David Touchton, Touch’s son, became the manager and operator of Touchton Electric and Alarms, Inc. Touch’s medical disability encouraged him to retire and watch the company grow under its new management. Under David’s leadership, Touchton specializes in residential and commercial electrical service, and alarm installation and repair. They pride themselves on keeping their focus on perfecting those two areas.

Touchton Electric and Alarms, Inc. offers a diversified array of security services, including residential and commercial security systems, fire alarms, camera systems, access control systems, and network cabling.
