Based in the heartland. Chief Enterprises is headquartered in Elmhurst, Illinois. You’ll find a Midwestern work ethic and an honest, open approach to doing business in everything we do. Founded in 1991 by Jim and Andy Gabelman, Chief has grown to be a premier provider of electrical components for OEMs and their suppliers in the automotive industry and peripheral markets. We also have offices in Mexico and distribution centers throughout the United States.
Rooted in the community. We’re committed to operating our business in ways that protect the environment—and the health and safety of our employees, customers and local community. We strive to be resource efficient, continually improving our ISO 14001:2004 certified Environmental Management System and complying with all applicable environmental laws and regulations.
Chief also supports a number of environmental and charitable initiatives, donating time, money and efforts to a variety of national and local-level organizations. We’re especially proud to support Smart Farm, an organization dedicated to teaching sustainable gardening and green life practices and to helping feed the hungry.
