Alabama-based Mayer Electric Supply recently added three associates to help build sales and market share in the industrial, commercial and institutional customer market segments.
“We¹re not a niche player in the wholesale-distribution business, stated Wes Smith, Mayer¹s president. “It has been our strategy since the 1970s to serve customers in all market segments; it just happens that we¹ve done so well in the construction segment over the past two decades, that it is time we invested more in the non-contractor market segments.To help foster growth in these areas, we¹ve brought on three outstanding people.
