City Electric Supply Company Timeline

It all began in 1983 when City Electric Supply (CES) founder, Tom Mackie, made the decision to start an electrical supply company. He wanted his employees to have the power to make local business decisions so they could provide customers with the locally tailored service and flexibility they deserve, while also providing all the benefits that come with an extended service network.
