King of Prussia, Pennsylvania — Colonial Electric Supply is pleased to announce the opening of its 25th counter location in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The new location is open for business following the acquisition of Lighting Fixture & Supply, a local lighting and electrical supply house who has served the Lehigh Valley for over fifty years. Lighting Fixture & Supply was founded in 1955 by Rolland W. Rodgers on the philosophy of providing quality merchandise at competitive prices with outstanding customer service. Colonial Electric Supply is one of the largest independent; family owned and operated electrical distributors in the Mid-Atlantic region, serving PA, NJ, DE, MD and NY.
Colonial’s newest stocking branch is located at 1033 Sumner Avenue in Allentown, PA. The facility will support the local lighting, electrical, industrial and construction industries with products and services. “Combining the six decades of LFS relationships with Colonial’s logistical competencies makes us together a much stronger force in the marketplace. But the real attraction for us came from their employees’ strong passion for customer service”, states Steve Bellwoar, President of Colonial Electric Supply.
The Allentown location will fall under the territory of John Rodman, Vice President of Colonial’s Western Region. Using his experience and knowledge of the area, John will lead the expansion in Allentown, PA and the growth in Colonial’s Western Territory. “Colonial Electric continues to partner with distributors who provide their customers and employees a successful atmosphere to do business. The Rogers’ family has obviously done that for nearly sixty years. We look forward to extending the Colonial service area with the support of the LFS staff and customers.”
Colonial Electric’s success is built around employees who provide quality customer service. Branch locations allow Colonial employees to personally serve customers quickly and conveniently with the support of over $21 million in inventory at its Customer Service Center. In addition, Colonial continues to provide customer-focused programs through 24-hour emergency service, online account management, real-time inventory status, and training.
