"If I get a material list for a will call I can go right online and check and see if have it in stock and which locations have it"

Andrew W.
Professional Electric Contractors.

"As an Electrical contractor I have been buying Electrical supplies from Northeast since the 90's and there is a reason for that. The number one reason is that they have grown with the times. In the 90's I would have 5 stock rooms filled with materials for everyday use. In today's world being able to order on line at will has eliminated carrying any stock. If I need some thing for the next day I order before 6 and have it the next day. Needco. Com is one of the easiest ways I have found to order materials and keep track of what I have ordered for previous jobs in the past and future. It is also a great tool for looking up pricing or getting cut sheets for odd jobs or quoting jobs. Once you take the step forward into the future of NEEDCO ordering you will see how easy it is. There are items that are not always priced according to what you would expect but there inside sales person is always keeping an eye out for what products you buy and is constantly upgrading the price to fit your buying needs. I have been using NEEDCO.COM from day one and if I did not have it I would be lost, It allows me not only to see what in stock but also allows me to find something that will work if it is out of stock. From a billing stand point my bookkeeper loves it as she has pricing and a list of materials instantly for billing purpose.If you haven't tried it you are missing out.

"When dealing with a complicated lighting project here at Griffin Electrical Contractors Inc. we always turn to the supplier that we know can help us get the project done. And that is the staff at Northeast Electrical Supply. With the staff in Hartford and especially our right hand project manager Geraldine Tribodet we get the best service we can ask for. Geraldine keeps up on ship dates often improving them and updates our staff regularly without being asked. She updates us weekly before our job meetings and make the lighting side of our projects run smoothly throughout the project. She stays on top of any defective or damaged fixtures and gets them remedied ASAP. We can’t ask for a better team to work with."

"In an urgent bind with our project, I called NorthEast Electrical Distributors for some Value Engineering help. One of your associates very calmly redid the riser design using typical products that we use in these high-rise condominiums, met with the Engineer, and attended several meetings with the Construction Manager and Developer. Another associate also did the same with the Lighting Package, exhibiting extreme patience working out lighting layouts, and making some excellent substitution changes for some of the originally high-priced fixtures. Your associates did a great job getting the Electrical numbers back in line so that the project would actually go forward. Please thank both of them for their efforts. I have another job we want to work with you on."

"The service from NorthEast is well above the norm in the Electrical Distributor business. Management to truck driver seems to excel in filling our electrical needs. The stock levels, in Canton helps to finish jobs in a timely manner and the early am deliveries help in limiting down time on our projects. I will continue to support NorthEast."

"I can not express enough thanks to the NorthEast Electrical Distributors team at the Worcester, MA branch for their tireless efforts on an Industrial project which was just recently completed. The project consisted of a tightschedule which required lots of manpower- twelve hour days for seven days. The NorthEast staff opened their doors after regular hours and especially on the Sundays to help make sure this project was completed. This is the quality service NorthEast provides and we appreciate."
