Graybar is on the Move in New York, New Jersey

Edison, N.J., September 22, 2009 – Graybar, a leading distributor of electrical and communications products and related supply chain management and logistics services, is enhancing its presence in New Jersey and New York to position itself for growth and to better serve area customers.

Graybar will open a full-service logistics center in Carteret, N.J., to serve as the primary shipping location for the New York and New Jersey area. The service center will provide customers with fast access to extensive local inventory, supported by state-of-the-art warehouse management technology and responsive delivery service.

In addition to the new logistics center, Graybar plans to move its sales, service and administrative employees into new offices: one in Nassau County, N.Y. and another in Middlesex County, N.J. The logistics center and both offices are expected to open by year-end.

"This enhanced service and logistics platform will greatly improve the vitality and growth of our locations in the New York and New Jersey area," said Chris Olsen, Graybar's district vice president for the area. "By centralizing our warehouse and office facilities, we can better align our resources to serve our customers more effectively."
