About Powell Electronics

Harold PowellPowell Electronics is among the largest distributors of electronic components and value-added services. Our focus and expertise includes electronic connectors, switches, sensors, and related electro-mechanical products. For close to 70 years, we have brought a unique sense of purpose and vision to electronics distribution.

Our company was founded in 1946 by Harold H. Powell, who was a Navy electronics technician during World War II. After the war, Harold started selling components from his garage in response to the burgeoning post-war demand for electronics parts. Since then, the company has established an unbroken record of success as a specialty components distributor.

Today, we are a national company with a global reach, representing the most respected manufacturers. We employ a staff of over 200 people at 11 U.S. locations, and utilize state-of-the-art technology. We supply all industries, especially companies servicing key market sectors, including:

  • ECIA MemberMilitary/Aerospace
  • Telecommunications
  • Transportation
  • Medical Imaging and Instrumentation
  • The United States Government

Still a family-owned company, Powell Electronics continues to be guided by our founding principles of honesty, integrity, ethical dealings, plus a sense of urgency for meeting our customers' needs.
