DALLAS — TITAN Business Awards (TITAN) recently announced the list of the 2021 Season 1 winners and City Electric Supply (CES) is thrilled to announce that it walked away with a victorious win. The electrical wholesale distributor received the platinum award in the Company & Organization – Construction Category, Family Business with Family Values.
“To receive an award in recognition of our family values is an incredible feeling,” said Thomas Hartland-Mackie, CEO and president of CES. “From our company’s inception, we’ve strived to work with integrity and do what’s right for our people, our customers and our communities. It’s an honor to receive this award, not just for my family, but for the 7,000+ families who have chosen to work with us and embody our values every day.”
CES, an international electrical wholesale distributor, was founded by Tom Mackie in the United Kingdom in 1951. The company’s very first branch was located in an old barn with a desk fashioned from an old door supported by two tea chests and two columns of red bricks. After more than three decades of growth in the UK, the company expanded into the United States, opening its first branch location in Tampa, Florida, in 1983. Just one year later, CES celebrated the opening of its 10th U.S. branch. Today, CES operates over 500 U.S. branches and more than 1,000 worldwide with operations in nine countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Spain, Australia, Ireland, China, and Turkey.
CES takes pride in being a family-owned business that exemplifies family values. In 2016, City Electric Supply created CES Cares, the social impact division which serves as the umbrella for all the philanthropic, charitable, and volunteer efforts in which the company and its employees participate. Since its inception, CES Cares has donated over $10 million dollars to charitable organizations, partnering with local, national, and international charities to help tackle issues that impact families and children.
