About Crawford

Our Story

In 1990 Crawford Electric Supply opened its first store in Dallas, Texas and began a tradition of excellence. Within five years of opening, the store was ranked #1 in the twin city market. Crawford has grown from one location and six associates to 25 locations across Texas and Louisiana and more than 650 associates. Over the last 25 years, Crawford Electric has lived up to, and exceeded, its motto of "Whatever it Takes!"

Our team is dedicated to serving the commercial, industrial and residential markets. In addition, we have specialists for safety and power tools as well as energy savings experts.
