Electrical Distribution


Electrical Distribution is a $72 billion industry. We play an essential role in building a better life for communities everywhere.

Electrical distributors buy thousands of products from hundreds of electrical manufacturers and then warehouse, sell, and deliver these products to their customers. Distributors are the essential link between companies that make electrical products and the contractors, electricians, designers, architects, specifiers, and service professionals who put the products into operation all over the world. Beyond warehousing and selling electrical products, distributors also provide critical value-added services like extensive product knowledge, technical assistance and trouble-shooting, on-time delivery, market knowledge, and extending credit to end-users. In addition, distributors provide manufacturers with local market presence through promotions and sales efforts, plus local market intelligence for new product development.

Sandy Rosecrans, President/CEO of City Electric Company, discusses the importance of the channel:

The markets for electrical products are huge—residential and commercial electrical contractors, commercial and industrial companies, schools, hospitals, and power companies, as well as government and military installations. Electrical components are also purchased by manufacturing companies to use in all sorts of electrical products.
