  • Baker Electric: Four generations since 1938

    When in 1938, LeRoy Neville Baker paid $4,000 to purchase the Dietrich Electric Shop in Escondido, he could hardly have imagined that the company he founded, Baker Electric Inc., would still be thriving nearly three-quarters of a century later, with his great-grandson, Ted Baker, its president and CEO.
