DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:
Since George J. Gross founded Gross Electric in 1910, the vision of a bright future in Toledo has been passed down from one generation to the next. Richard Gross took over the business from his father in the 1960s, and Laurie Gross assumed the position of president in 1992. Her brother, Joe, is vice president of the company.
Gross Electric is the oldest independent, family-owned lighting and electrical supply distributor in the area. For over 100 years, the company has provided electrical products to the commercial, institutional, and residential markets. With more than 175 combined years of experience in the industry, the expertise of the electrical supply sales staff is unparalleled. All of the lighting showroom salespeople have been trained by the American Lighting Association, with a number having over 25 years of experience.
For three generations, the Gross family has been a part of the Toledo community. "We live and work here, just like our customers," says Laurie Gross, "and we are committed to helping our city thrive." The company supports local charities such as the Sight Center and the Alzheimer’s Association, and donates to fundraisers for local organizations.
