Our Story At a Glace



R.P. Crawford Co., Inc. and all of the great folks we work with. Family owned and operated with a positive outlook, attention to detail and personal touch.

We work with businesses and organizations of all sizes. From large global corporations like US Steel, PPG, Bank of New York Mellon and PNC, to small non-profit organizations like college and high school booster clubs. Working with organizations of different sizes requires different approaches, but our goal is always the same – meeting or exceeding our customers’ expectations.


We sell lots of stuff! It started in 1962 with carbon paper and business forms. When Ray Crawford Sr. delivered his products, his customers complained they didn’t have room to store them. But they knew Ray was a problem solver so within a short time, Ray was designing, delivering and installing shelving systems too. Then came office supplies, office furniture, full color printing and even custom imprinted promotional products were on our menu. Ray didn’t hesitate to seek new opportunities and his customers trusted him to make good on his promises.



Ray Crawford Sr. started the business in 1962. Ray Crawford Jr. joined the company in 1981. Two generations and over 50 years so far…. that’s a long time, don’t you think? We must be doing something right!


From our early beginnings in Pittsburgh, PA, to any city and beyond so I guess you could say….here, there and everywhere.
