Why It’s Better to Work Directly with a Manufacturer
Each year, Electrical Wholesaling Magazine releases its list of the top 200 electrical distributors in the nation. This comprehensive guide, often complete with helpful tidbits about individual companies, provides updates on the industry as a whole and aids consumers in their future buying choices.
The 2020 list was accompanied by an in-depth article that had much to say about the impact of COVID-19 on the industry, exploring shifts to remote sales, the reduction of conference travel, and the growth and necessity of working from home.
It also touched on how a lot of companies are sourcers, not manufacturers. This issue is a common one in Electrical Wholesaling. Instead of working directly with manufacturers, distributors often partner with sourcers who have less control over the creation of individual products.
We’re a manufacturer, not a sourcer
While sourcers play an important role in the industry, third parties often lack direct oversight of the quality of the final product, sometimes resulting in issues with quality and consistency. At EarthTronics, we have spent the past 13 years manufacturing specialty LED light fixtures and bulbs that are designed for peak performance and long life. But despite our youth, quality is our number one priority. As a manufacturer and not a sourcer of these groundbreaking and energy saving products, we oversee each and every detail, ensuring that our clients receive the best hardworking solution for their facilities.
A notable difference
When seeking out a new electrical wholesaling provider, make sure to choose a manufacturer and not a sourcer of quality lighting solutions. This simple but big difference can determine if you, as the distributor, are selling a high quality product with fewer issues in the long run, and can easily stand behind long-lasting fixtures and bulbs for your consumers.
