Our Story

The DeFazio family has been serving the electrical manufacturers representative industry for more than forty years. In 1976, Rick DeFazio’s father, John DeFazio, founded Electric Sales Unlimited in Southern California. Over the past several decades, ESU has grown to become one of the largest manufacturers representative firms in America – covering Arizona, California, and Nevada. Rick DeFazio worked at ESU from 1989 through 2004, serving in various positions throughout the company. In 2005, Rick moved to the East Coast and joined Brazill Brothers & Associates as a shareholder and Sales Manager. In 2016, Rick sold his interest in the company and founded DeFazio Industries.

The third generation of the DeFazio family in the industry include Rick's sons, Anthony and Michael DeFazio, who began their careers in a part-time role as CRM Administrators at Brazill Brothers & Associates. Their responsibilities included developing standards for effective database management, quotations and lead tracking, and spearheading a digital marketing program.

Since DeFazio Industries was formed, Anthony and Michael have served as Inside Sales Representatives and Account Managers, bringing years of experience in automation and customer relationship management to the company. Anthony and Michael have completed two years of the three-year Certified Professional Manufacturers Representative Program (CPMR®) program and will received their certifications in 2019.

The DeFazio culture can be summarized as the pursuit of excellence in everything we do. This is made possible through a combination of yesterday’s experience, today’s technology, and tomorrow’s team. Decades of industry experience make us a trusted resource to the manufacturers we represent, the customers we serve, and the marketplaces we operate in.
