A Brief History
In 1977, operating out of his garage, and then in a shop in his hometown of Mt. Horeb, Dave Jones established his business. He “did it all,” earning multiple professional licenses in the plumbing trade. In 1985, he acquired a heating and cooling company so he could expand his service offerings under one roof. By 1992, growth warranted a move to Madison to have closer proximity to customers and major suppliers. In October 2005, the company moved into its newly constructed headquarters at 2225 Kilgust Road.

The 30,000 square foot facility includes prefabrication equipment for plumbing and heating, as well as administrative offices and an expansive warehouse. The move was essential for the company’s continued growth and technological advancement in its industry. The building provided the necessary support for their employees and was named the 2006 “New Building of the Year” award by the City of Monona. In 2008, Dave added to his promise of “One Call Does it All” by acquiring a local fire sprinkling business. The dedicated employees of Dave Jones Fire Protection provide design, installation, and service of fire protection systems throughout Wisconsin.
A Transition to a New Generation of Owners
On June 15, 2015, Greg Jones and Holly (Jones) Kellesvig purchased the remaining shares of Dave Jones from their parents, Dave and Jill Jones. The purchase was the final step in a transition of ownership from one generation to the next. Greg and Holly have proven themselves as great leaders, and the entire Dave Jones team looks forward to the future.
In December 2017, Greg Jones and Holly (Jones) Kellesvig announced the addition of an electrical division. Because we are now able to provide all major home mechanical services, the Dave Jones team has evolved into an award-winning trusted home and business service partner.
