Chapman Electric Co.    Since 1935

Chapman Electric Company was founded in 1935 in Dallas, Texas
by Clifford  "RED" Chapman. Red received his degree in electrical
engineering from Texas A&M, and began his business in his
backyard. He served as an officer in the U.S. Army in WWII where
he designed and set up battery re-manufacturing facilities that
overseas. Upon his return, he moved his shop to downtown Dallas
where he then specialized in batteries and re-manufacturing
electric motors for streetcars.
In the early sixties, the company was passed to Red's son Clifford
G. Chapman Junior. Clifford could see that the needs of the
material handling industry were constantly growing. In light of
those needs, the company began specializing in servicing electric
forklift motors.
Chapman Electric Company is now in its third generation of
family ownership with James and Chris Chapman. Through the
experience and guidance of our predecessors, Chapman Electric
Company continues to grow. We now service customers
throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. We at
