About Crawford

In 1990, Crawford Electric Supply opened its first store in Dallas, TX and began a tradition of excellence. Within five years of opening, the store was ranked #1 in the twin city market. Over the next few years, Crawford grew from just one store of 6 employees with $2 million in sales to 6 locations with $320 million in sales (Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Fort Worth, and College Station). Always striving to be the preferred business to business provider of electrical products and solutions, each location rose to the top of their respective markets and continued to expand our footprint. Today, Crawford has grown to 25 locations across Texas and Louisiana with more than 600 associates. We are proud to serve commercial, residential, and industrial markets. Over the last 30 years, Crawford has lived up to and exceeded its motto of, "Whatever it Takes!"
