BOSTON, Mass. — Electric Supply Center (ESC), the region’s leading distributor of electrical equipment and supplies, is pleased to announce the addition of Jim Crabtree as the company’s new Director of Supply Chain.
As Director of Supply Chain, Crabtree will be responsible for overseeing all ESC operations and purchasing across the company’s five Bay State locations.
Crabtree previously worked as Vice President of Supply Chain Management for US Electrical Services Inc. in Middletown, Conn. where he oversaw Supply Chain Management from Procurement to Customer receipt and managed Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) conversions within the company Supply Chain for eight regions, ultimately bringing new processes and increasing service to customers.
“Jim is considered the best in the industry when it comes to operations,” said ESC President Larry LaFreniere. “Early on, we always followed the motto, “Do what you say you are going to do.’ As we grew, this motto became more challenging to follow, yet twice as important. Jim will be instrumental in developing our next levels of service for our clients, especially “Directs through Stock’ for our larger projects, as operations and sales work closely to create solutions at ESC.”
Throughout his career, Crabtree has provided dynamic leadership on divisional and corporate scope projects, while serving as a significant decision-maker with internal senior management, external customers, and strategic partners.
“We are impressed with Jim’s level of professionalism and know he will be a welcome addition to the team at ESC,” says LaFreniere.
