TAW: An Equipment Distribution & Service Company With Deep Roots in Florida

In 1921, Mr. J.A. Turner Sr. and three associates built a core technical team, which led to the formation of Turner Electric Works in 1938 in Jacksonville, Fla., serving a niche need in the pulp and paper manufacturing business in northeast Florida and southeast Georgia.

With ongoing leadership and guidance from the Turner family, TAW has expanded its geographical reach and areas of expertise, while remaining true to the mantra it was founded on: customers first.
