|Chapman Electric Company was founded in 1935 in Dallas, Texas by Clifford "RED"
Chapman. Red received his degree in electrical engineering from Texas A&M, and
began his business in his backyard. He served as an officer in the U.S. Army in WWII
where he designed and set up battery re-manufacturing facilities overseas. Upon his
return, he moved his shop to downtown Dallas where he then specialized in battery
repair and re-manufacturing electric motors for streetcars.
In the early sixties, the company was passed to Red's son Clifford G. Chapman Junior.

growing. In light of those needs, the company changed its specialty to servicing electric
