Having Options Helps When Supply Chain Is Tight

11/12/2021

Recently, I came across an article called “Top 10 Automation Companies in the World” by ForumAutomation. As I read it, I realized that of the top five manufacturers listed, Standard Electric carries three of them. And we distribute six of the ten!  I think I can say with confidence that we know automation! 

One of our greatest strengths is and has always been the depth of our line card. That is even more important during this time of long lead times and other supply chain issues. We partner with the leading global suppliers of industrial automation and controls equipment. And we work hard for our customers; to earn and keep their business. How?

  • We have multiple providers of industrial automation equipment (like PLC's, HMI's controllers, etc.). This means you are offered the solution that best suits your application; not the only solution that one manufacturer has for you. 
  • You have direct access to other lines of electrical equipment versus buying a private-labeled unit. This means you avoid paying higher prices from mark ups for putting the "brand" label on it. 
  • Some of the lines you can buy direct from Standard Electric are: ABB, Schneider Electric, Eaton Bussmann, Mersen, PULS, Euchner, Pepperl Fuchs, Carlo Gavazzi, Idec Honeywell, Wago, Finder, Sensopart, Werma, Weidmuller just to name a few. You might be receiving these exact products from another distributor but under another label.
  • When it comes to repair and servicing your products, we have dedicated engineers on staff who are extensively trained on these automation manufacturers. They know their stuff.

If you are finding that your options are limited because of the lack of breadth or depth of your distributors line card and their automation manufacturer partner, give us a call.  We probably have what you are looking for!
