Established in 1947, Crown Supply started as a small supplier of electrical supplies, equipment and appliances serving the Providence, Rhode
Island area. In 1984 the original owners sold to the current ownership, the Donahue Family. Our Company President, Bill Donahue, son of a second
generation electrician, began his work the electrical distribution industry at Crown Supply in 1984. By 1986 Crown Supply established a sister
location in Milford Massachusetts.
Still owned and operated by Bill Donahue, the company’s facilities, customer base and product/service offering has grown dramatically. Crown is
proud to have become a valued trading partner to customers of all types all over New England. We are specifically proud of the ties we have
grown with the electrical contractor and tradesman base which is where our family roots are.
At Crown Supply we are more than a traditional distributor. We are always looking to expand our product and services offering to create
opportunity for our customer's, manufacturer partners and most importantly growth opportunities for our employees. We currently offer a
creative package of services, not just hardware, including electrical and fire alarm system design, programming and technical support. These
services are designed to enhance our customer’s capabilities as well as profitability and allow them to take full advantage of all products at
their disposal. We understand that our customers have ever changing demands placed on them so we are constantly looking for ways to help.
We are looking forward to serving our customers and industry in an unique and helpful way long into the future.
