Buffalo Electric Co Inc. recorded its first year of business as an electrical supply distributor in 1955 under the leadership of its co-founder, Clayton “Clay” McCarroll. Buffalo Electric’s growth into Birmingham was unplanned, but ended up being a critical move in the company’s success, Clay observed early the promise of the relatively young yet thriving community.
