Our History

Servicing the Metroplex since 1985.

Telecom Electric Supply Company was founded by Fred Moses in 1985. Moses had spent 11 years working for General Electric, where he was promoted into the position of Operations Manager at one of their facilities in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He moved to the Dallas, Texas area, as Operations Manager for General Electric in the early 80’s.

As often happens with entrepreneurial experiences, Moses was presented with the opportunity to start his own company with a contract that essentially used his unique, trained expertise. Thus, Telecom Electric Supply Company (now known as TES) was launched.

The company became a wholesale distributor of electrical and telecommunications products. They provided traditional services including purchasing, stocking and shipping of electrical products to customers. Their biggest customers were in the utilities and telecommunications industries.

In 1986 as the business continued to grow and add clients, TES moved into office space that included a warehouse. By 1992, the growth required even larger space and TES moved into its current location.

Today, Telecom Electric Supply Company (TES) is a service company that specializes in Procurement, Vendor-Managed Inventory and 3rd Party Logistics. They are a trusted supplier to a wide range of industries including utilities, municipalities, police, fire sanitation, safety, schools, commercial real estate, building maintenance and local, state and federal government agencies.
