LOVELAND, Colorado — Just 20 minutes outside of the Rocky Mountains, a new store has officially opened after completing a six-month renovation. Electrical wholesale distributor City Electric Supply (CES) recently opened in Loveland, Colorado. The store will serve as the company’s 19th location in the state.
After the renovation process that began in early 2022, the location is now the largest CES store in the state. Just shy of 8,000 square feet, the building underwent a complete transformation with the removal of a partial wall, the addition of a full pipe yard on the side, and the installation of customized racking for the best organization possible inside the branch.
“Our ultimate goal here is to be able to service the people of Colorado, no matter the job size,” said Branch Manager Winston Bollig. “My team and I hope our facility will allow this goal to be a reality. We came in with a vision, knowing what we wanted to do at the beginning of the remodel. Taking our time picking everything out, my team and I wanted to ensure everything was done right.”
In the northern region of Colorado, this CES store will provide easier access to materials for customers. CES Loveland is nestled between three other CES branches located within a half-hour drive of this new branch.
“A big part of opening this Loveland location was to allow our customers to reach us quicker, and in turn, we can help their job sites with ease. This will be our first location in Loveland, and CES is thrilled to be here,” said District Manager Mike Jones. “This branch is situated right in the middle of town. It’s in a great spot for people heading any direction in and out of the area.”
Winston, who was born and raised in the area, started working in the electrical industry while still in high school.
“I started working in a panel shop. I just wanted a job, but it’s turned into a career,” said Winston. “I started on the counter, learning different parts as I went. The sales aspect of the job came naturally after that, and I really enjoy the customer aspect of the industry.”
Early in his career, Winston had the opportunity to work beside someone special, his dad.
“My dad has worked in the industry for 32 years,” said Winston. “We worked in sales together for about a year, and it was really cool to learn beside him.”
What’s he looking forward to as the manager of the branch? Developing his own team and helping everyone around him reach their greatest potential.
“I enjoy getting work to in this location with CES, I get to grow and help out my own team, and I’m excited to see where this branch goes in the next few years,” said Winston. “Stop in, say hello, and check us out for your electrical needs. CES Loveland is here to help you.”Tagged with CES, City Electric Supply
