Hawk Electronics Inc. started in 1978 (7/11/78) as general line electronic components distributor. Charles Poncher signed a distribution contract with Switchcraft to sell and build custom assemblies for the Chicagoland and surrounding areas. With a focus on the product and customers needs Hawk grew from one line and a handful of customers  and from 3,000 SqFt to over 50 Lines and 10,000+ customers and 60,000 SqFt.

During the 80’s and 90’s the local and regional distributors experienced consolidation and globalization pressures. Of the 700+ Distribution members of the industry trade association (NEDA) less than 75 were active as a distribution in the mid 2000’s. While the industry experienced a 80+% consolidation, Hawk remained an independent distributor focused on a select group of electromechanical franchised lines with a stable base of customers base. 

Hawk diverse customer base ranges in size from single owner operator business & hobbists, to the biggest telecommuication and aerospace companies.
Our sales team actively calls on customers in the upper midwest, while our inside sales and marketing focuses on
