Meet CDL

leadership team


Larry Seward Jr., CEO and Owner of CDL Group of Companies. CDL started as S&S Electric in 1964, where Larry worked with his father and mother. Larry graduated from Pittsburg State University with a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Technology. After obtaining his degree, Larry worked toward, and received, his Master Electrician certification and took over S&S in 1996. From the beginning, Larry created a company vision and developed his objectives accordingly. What began as a “mom and pop” company with very few employees having a sole focus on Pittsburg, Kansas has turned into a multi-million company – C.D.L. Electric Company, LLC – now servicing 35+ states and 2 provinces because Larry combined leadership ability and vast business experience. CDL was once known as a small electric company but has grown into a railroad solutions and trades services company providing customer-focused solutions for a wide array of industries. CDL is also nationally recognized as a provider of railroad maintenance in the short line industry.

CDL has remained a family-centric business through the years with Larry Jr.’s two sons – Dustin Seward and Larry Seward III – playing an integral role in the growth of the company over the past decade. Dustin and Larry III now run Serrmi Products, LLC.

Outside of the office, Larry focuses on his family ranch. Larry sees his company as a resource to encourage growth within not only the community, but also in his employees. He enjoys being part of a business that provides ample opportunity to so many individuals and looks forward to the continued growth.
