A need for change
5,000 and rising. This is the number of electrical distributors scattered throughout the United States. Competition is extreme. Electrical distributors are buying pipe and selling it at a loss just to make their customers happy. Unbelievable! This highly competitive industry requires the utmost attention to the needs and demands of the modern electrical contractor. With pressure from every side - home centers - independent distributors - online channels - and a need for efficiency - electrical distributors need help more than ever before.
Three. And shrinking. This is the number of electrical conduit pipe manufacturers in the United States of America. A lack of competitive environment has brought innovation to a standstill and customer service (to electrical distributors) is practically non-existent. Prices are rising mostly due to a lack of competition and a great deal of waste. Waste in the value chain. Waste in the manufacturing process. And no one incentivized to eliminate that waste. Why lower prices or look to reduce waste when there are no other options today? Electrical distributors are viewed by these manufacturers as simply a "channel" and not a customer. While these manufacturers support many "channels" (some moreso than others) electrical distributors are left with few options and must live by the laundry list of "rules" in place. High order minimums. Slow service. Lack of attention to detail. Zero flexibility. No help.
