Granite City Electric Acquires Baynes Electric Supply

QUINCY, Mass. – Granite City Electric Supply recently concluded an Asset Acquisition of Baynes Electric Supply, and Baynes and Jones Electric Supply to enhance its position as the leading independent electrical distributor in New England.

The complementary combination of Baynes Electric and Granite City Electric locations creates a broader service network with greater inventory breadth, and delivery options for New England customers. The combined companies will provide more locations for customers throughout southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. With the addition of the Baynes’ four locations, Granite City Electric Supply Company now has a current total of thirty (30) locations throughout New England.

Granite City Electric President Steve Helle and owner Phyllis Papani Godwin wish to extend a warm welcome to the Baynes family and employees. Godwin notes, “this transaction creates future opportunities for mutual growth, personally and professionally, in our combined efforts to serve all customers.

Chris Baynes says he is “looking forward to having our teams combine with the Granite City team to help grow our business throughout the 6 New England states.” He will remain with the company in a senior management role.

Baynes Electric – serving contractors, institutions, national and retail lighting accounts since 1956 – is a well-run family-owned company with a similar approach to building customer loyalty, a strong brand, and a solid distribution channel. Their complementary business philosophies enhance Granite City Electric’s strategic growth goals using GCE The Night Train® Delivery System and delivering over 70 percent of all orders at night.

Granite City Electric Supply Company Inc.—a family-owned and operated, independent electrical distributor—is committed to delivering customer and organizational safety to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 through our proactive approaches in anti-bacterial material handling processes. The culmination of all our stock deliveries are orders delivered after 6 PM, but before 6 AM via our Contact-Free GCE Night Train® Delivery Services.
