Feb 8, 2021

City Electric Supply has endorsed NEMRA’s POS Minimum Reporting Standards.

With over 520 locations in 30 states, City Electric Supply, one of the fastest growing distributors in North America, provides POS information to many of its manufacturers.  According to Andrew Dawes, co-COO of City Electric Supply, “Independent manufacturer representatives are important to us and we want them to be appropriately compensated for supporting our local branches. City Electric Supply was built on the power of local. When we started sharing POS information with manufacturers that we stock in our centralized warehouses we utilized the NEMRA format from the beginning. We’re happy to formally endorse the standards and encourage all of our manufacturers to endorse, and accept, this format.”

John Gray, co-COO with Dawes, commented that “We share POS with those manufacturers we stock in our larger warehouses which support manufacturers with back-up inventory, for fulfilling web orders as well as our selected elements of our wire and solar businesses. Our first preference is direct selling into a territory because we believe in the power of local inventory.”

Jim Johnson, President of NEMRA, commented, “On behalf of the NEMRA independent manufacturer representatives we appreciate City Electric Supply’s endorsement, and more importantly, utilization, of our POS format. Having standards facilitates the flow of information and this critical information is needed to ensure independent manufacturer representatives are compensated fairly and accurately. Like City Electric Supply, NEMRA believes in the power of local as that is where our members excel … in helping their manufacturers service, and grow, sales in their local markets.”
