Company History

Founded in 1986, Texas corporation National Switchgear was started with a primary focus of serving the electrical service shop industry with quality surplus circuit breakers and replacement parts. Doug Powell, company Co-Founder and President, had a simple mission: operate with integrity and provide our customers with unparalleled responsive service and quality equipment.

Since conception, National Switchgear has moved from strength to strength, but we have never abandoned the focus of providing customers value through quality products and responsive service. In 1997, responding to customer needs, National Switchgear created a new division focused on full-service electrical testing and on-site electrical maintenance services.

Today, National Switchgear offers a broad line of new and remanufactured electrical switchgear products and on-site acceptance and equipment reliability testing services. Additionally, the corporation provides a variety of electrical power system engineering services such as arc flash studies and mediation services.

As National Switchgear looks to the future, the company remains committed to continued product and service developments to improve the overall performance, reliability, and protection of the electrical power systems of our clients.
