In 1919, William R. Schnirring, Sr., began his career in the electrical business in Springfield, Illinois. In 1929, Mr. Schnirring acquired sole ownership of this retail outlet for lighting fixtures, electrical contracting, and appliance business. In January 1932, the focus of the company changed from contracting and retail to electrical distribution.
At that time, the name changed from Schnirring Electric Company to Springfield Electric Supply Company. Since the mid-1950s, the company’s branch operation and company headquarters have occupied the 700 block of North 9th Street in Springfield, with several building renovations and expansions. Over the past 50 years, we’ve opened additional locations throughout Illinois to serve more markets.
