Buckles-Smith Electric | Industrial Automation | Electrical Supplies


San Jose, CA – May 23, 2013
On Friday, May 17th, 2013, Buckles-Smith acquired Plough Electric Supply of San Francisco. Both companies were founded in 1939 and have a focus on serving industrial customers of Northern California. Plough has built a successful business on the same values shared by Buckles-Smith of solution selling and putting customers first. The acquisition strengthens Buckles-Smith’s position as the leading independent distributor in Northern California serving the industrial OEM, end user markets, and gives Buckles-Smith a much desired physical presence in San Francisco.

It is our intent to build on the strength and relationships Plough has established with its customers with the full support and resources available from Buckles-Smith. Through all of the noise of national chains and foreign consolidators, this acquisition builds on our vision to be the best source for electrical supplies for our customers in Northern California.

We, at Buckles-Smith, would like to welcome the Plough team to the Buckles-Smith Family!
