Crawford Electric and Irby Electric to Combine in 2024

June 20, 2023

Sonepar, Charleston, SC, announced that its U.S. subsidiaries, Crawford Electric and Irby Electric, will merge operations in 2024, and operate on a combined basis as Crawford. Irby Utilities will remain a stand-alone business and will not be impacted by this change.

“Combining these two best-in-class operations under the single Crawford brand will create significant growth prospects across the entire footprint,” said Rob Taylor, president of Sonepar North America, in the press release. “We expect a smooth transition over the course of the next year, one which will not impact our customers or the day-to-day work of associates of either Crawford or Irby Electric.”

The new Crawford will have full responsibility to serve the contractor/installer and industrial customer base in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Florida panhandle, Tennessee, and Texas, with continued investment in logistics, branch coverage, and acquisitions to accelerate profitable growth and maintain its strong leadership position.
