As a branch of the greater network of more than 260 locations, Graybar Davenport has access to all the electrical supplies a modern project needs. Established in 1869, Graybar today has a name as the leading commercial and industrial lighting supplier in North America. Graybar employs thousands of hard-working men and women, and is, in fact, one of the largest employee-owned companies in the country. Graybar has the impact and stability of a large company mixed with the honesty and sincerity of a local neighborhood store.
To answer the demand for energy solutions, Graybar takes the “smart” building to a new level. At the heart of intelligent buildings is an advanced infrastructure of lighting, communications, HVAC and security systems working inside of a single IP-enabled network. Energy-efficient solutions not only save on energy costs but help reduce maintenance costs and improve employee safety and productivity. Over 30 percent of energy used in commercial buildings is done inefficiently. Graybar can help you to monitor, report on, control, and ultimately reduce that percentage.
A lighting retrofit is a simply yet effective way to reduce the energy envelope of your existing buildings. An example of a retrofit would be replacing old lamps and ballasts with newer counterparts. This has been shown to decrease energy consumption in lighting systems by as much as 67 percent. Most of the electrical supplies we stock will directly install into the old housings hassle-free.
When a new construction project is underway, Graybar will work closely with the lead architects to integrate key features into the design so as to make the new building efficient from the start. Properly implemented daylighting combined with time scheduling and internal sensors and dimmers ensure optimal lighting of your building at all times of the day.
Graybar Davenport has done an outstanding job of upholding company standards and continues to be an important part of the nation’s leading commercial and industrial lighting supplier.
