Quality Electric Supply began life as Triumpho Electric in 1960 as a small retail store in Gallows Bay, St Croix. In the mid 1980’s, Jim Triumpho’s nephew, Karl Bauknight, purchased the wholesale/retail St Croix operation of Triumpho Electric, and renamed it Quality Electric Supply, Inc.

Hurricane Hugo in 1989 left the business mostly intact, with some structural damage to the facility. The company was open for business three days after the storm. Nine months after the hurricane, a fire burned the newly-repaired facility to the ground. New plans were drawn up for a first-class facility to supply electrical materials to the entire Virgin Islands, including 20,000 square feet of warehouse space, a spacious lighting showroom, and offices to support the next stage of growth.

Quality Electric Supply opened its existing facility in 1991. The company has consistently added new and innovative products in the electrical field, and broadened into distribution of Cummins-Onan power generation equipment, Mitsubishi Electric Air Conditioning units, and other products to serve the Caribbean markets. Keeping abreast of a constantly changing market, three degreed engineers were added to the staff and Quality Electric became known as more than simply selling products, but also selling solutions. Quality Electric and sister company, Caribbean Supply ship regularly to customers across the United States and British Virgin Islands.
