Questions to Ask an Electric Supplies Manufacturer

Electric supplies manufacturers build, distribute and sell an array of electrical equipment for commercial and residential use. If you are an electrician seeking the best price or a consumer looking for information on lighting, wiring or electrical products, here are some questions to consider asking that will improve the likelihood of a successfully completed project.

  • Who do you sell to?
    Some distributors that manufacture electrical supplies sell only to electricians and contractors. But many will also sell consumer products to the general public.

  • What products do you carry?
    The largest supplies manufacturers may carry just about anything that generates or transmits electrical power, from switches and conduits to fuse boxes and fittings.

  • Do you carry energy efficient products?
    Responding to a more environmentally-conscious clientele, many electrical manufacturers and distributors now provide lighting and wiring products that save energy without a noticeable loss of power.

  • How do I find out about new products and specials?
    Check for discounts on certain products, or ask to be put on a mailing list to be made aware of new arrivals.

  • Do these products conform to local or state building codes?
    Find out if the wiring and electrical supplies you have selected will be approved by the inspectors who may have to review your project.

  • What type of warranty do you offer on your products?
    Ask about any guarantees or warranties available.

  • How long will it take to receive special order products?
    While manufacturers try to keep their entire product lines in stock, sometimes items will be sold out and take time to replace. If your project is on a strict timetable, ask about order times in advance.

    There are many experts who work for electrical supply manufacturers. In fact, this is a major industry all around the world. You must keep in mind that industrial jobs, commercial construction, and residential homes all call for certain power lighting and wiring tasks. This is why manufacturers sell electrical supplies in bulk to distributors and small dealers at wholesale rates. When you get involved with this field, you can expect to work with an array of fuse boxes, cable outlets, wire fittings, and plug conduits on a regular basis.

    As with most fields, there is some training involved if you plan on working for an electrical equipment supply manufacturer. After all, it is important for you to know as much as possible about lighting switches, wiring connectors, power cables, and fuses for power boxes. If you work at a factory that manufacturers these supplies, you will also need to know more about the dealers and distributors that purchase them in bulk. Then again, if you are employed at a home improvement store that sells power lighting and wiring supplies to electricians and contractors, then you will need to know how to deal with customers. It is important to realize that different contractors will need different power cables, insulation materials, and lighting supplies. Therefore, it is your job to keep a surplus of these items in stock.

    Any time you work as a professional in the electrical supplies industry, you will likely have to deal with buyers and electricians. This is just part of the job.
