Our History – Expert Express
Expert Express, Inc traces its history back to Albemarle, NC where Jesse Gantt (pictured here fourth from left) and his cousin, Jim Gantt opened their office on East Main St. in 1922. One of their claims to fame is that they installed all of the original plumbing in the barracks at Fort Bragg back in the 1920’s.
Vernon Gantt, Jr., grandson of Jesse Gantt, carries on this tradition of quality and customer service with Expert Express Inc.
Vernon is proud of how the family business has expanded to include air conditioning, heating (HVAC) and electric service as well.
“Two of my sons are in the plumbing business and have done quite well for themselves,” Vernon said. “A few of my daughters work for me in the office and help run things there. I’ve even got a son-in-law working for Expert Express. We treat our customers like family because that’s what we are… A big family.”
