Our History

Power-House Electrical Supply was formed in 2001 out of Parrish-Hare to expand into the industrial market segment in the Dallas - Ft. Worth Metroplex. The industrial markets they serve are the OEM market, the MRO market and the System Integrator market.

Power-House is an active member of the IMARK Group, a member-owned marketing group made up of more than 185 independent electrical distributors throughout the United States. Due to its widespread membership base, IMARK members are able to network national accounts and integrated supply issues. As a member of IMARK, Power-House is also able to provide sales and support throughout North America due to IMARK’S alliance with IED, Canada's largest network of independent electrical distributors.

Power-House’s business is supported by Activant Solar Eclipse (Trade Service Software Package), the largest software provider to the electrical industry. We are using an Electronic Data Interchange to enter and follow orders with many manufacturers, including Hubbell, Thomas Betts, 3M, and SQD, are receiving orders through the EDI from some Industrial accounts.
