INDIANAPOLIS, In. — In a suburb of Indianapolis, City Electric Supply has opened its newest branch in Fishers, Indiana. Fishers is known as a smart, vibrant city that is developing rapidly. Since 2000, the population has nearly doubled, bringing with it plenty of new business and innovation.
The Fishers branch is unique to the town, which has only a handful of electrical distributors north of I-465. The location will also service most of Hamilton County, including its contractors and growing businesses.
Branch Manager Rich Bragg is excited for the opportunities they will have, along with the many electrical contractors in the area.
“Providing services to several contractors and businesses in the area is going to be a big part of our success. It’s important we get their business and build a relationship together early.”
Although putting the branch together was a lot of work, Bragg also ran into a few challenges putting his team together. Making sure his branch was staffed with the most amazing, hardworking team and setting up with the right vendors were difficult, but he says it was well worth it in the end.
“The previous relationships I established with vendors really made the process smoother than I could have hoped. Having that shared history with my previous vendors and the history of City Electric Supply behind me was invaluable,” said Bragg. “It also let me go after the best employees. CES is a respected distributor, and the chance to make your own decisions to carry what you want is important, especially in this industry.”
LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — City Electric Supply also opened a new branch in Lawrenceville, a town centrally located in the heart of Mercer County with a unique blend of corporate, commercial, and residential communities.
Branch Manager Bill Scannon joined City Electric Supply a little over a year ago and has prepared to open this branch since March 2018.
“We wanted to make sure we had what our customers needed in the store. Anticipating what they would likely request and what vendors they would prefer was quite challenging, but I think we got a good mix here,” Scannon said.
In addition to the one-of-a-kind floor layout, the branch will also be extremely unique due to the amount of experience the team brings. With over 50 years of combined experience across the team, Scannon believes the branch’s success will come from their history of hard work.
“One of my favorite characteristics of my team is that we all enjoy having fun doing what we do.”
The Lawrenceville team is excited for the adventure that lays ahead. They know how hard it is to be a contractor and find a store that has exactly what they need. With the experience they have from all the fields they’ve worked in before, contractors should have no problem getting in and out of CES Lawrenceville quickly.
“We will do everything in our power to have what our customers need on hand,” Scannon said. “If not, we will make sure to get it in the same day. We want to provide the best customer service, even if we need to make deliveries. We’ll do whatever it takes to keep our customers happy and coming back to us.”Tagged with Biggest News, City Electric Supply
