Featured Showroom · Chicago, IL
Active Electrical Supply is a wholesale electrical and lighting distributor serving electrical, commercial and residential customers since 1953. Founded February 24, 1953 by Anton Fox and two partners, the company managed with just four employees; including Anton’s sons Herb and Ray. The company continues to be owned and operated by the Fox family to this day with locations in Chicago and Carol Stream. Our Chicago branch features our premier lighting showroom Fox Lighting Galleries. Our commitment to service, knowledge and in-stock selection remains our top priority since conception.
Our sales force has an average tenure of 20 years, and many of our employees have been with the company for 30 years or more. The same can be said for our loyal customers, many of whom have done business with Active for decades. The relationship we have with our employees is passed onto our customers, which is the cornerstone on which Active is built. Those who depend on us for quality products and service include professionals, architects and homeowners who appreciate our wide selection and our personalized, attentive service. In addition to stocking thousands of light fixtures at our Fox Lighting Galleries Showroom in Chicago, our Active Electrical Supply staff offers Certified Lighting Specialists (L.S.) and Electrical professionals (C.E.P.) to help you with your custom lighting and electrical needs. We carry a variety of electrical supplies from over 300 manufacturers, including conduit, wire, cable, fuses and tools.
