Graybar Flint is a leading commercial and industrial lighting supplier and distributor of electrical supplies to the commercial entities of Michigan. First established in 1869, Graybar has a stellar reputation in the management of supply chains of high-quality components. Graybar employs thousands of men and women at more than 260 offices, distribution centers, and counters like Flint, and is one of the largest employee-owned companies in the country. We have the presence and power of a large company combined with the integrity and honesty of a small neighborhood business.
A very large part of what we do at Graybar Flint is energy conservation and resource management. When 30 percent of all energy used in commercial buildings is wasted or used less than optimally, every business can benefit from our comprehensive energy solutions. These solutions have also been shown to reduce maintenance costs and improve productivity and safety overall. Upgrades to your systems can pay for themselves and then some in as little as two years. Integrating Graybar solutions will also help support your long term sustainability goals, such as a government mandated reduction in general energy usage by 20 percent by the year 2020.
Rising electricity costs, environmental regulations and concerns about employee wellness and productivity have businesses looking at updating their lighting systems. Building lighting accounts for more than 25 percent of the energy used in most facilities and a lighting retrofit is a simple and highly effective way to make your building more efficient. Many electrical supplies will swap out with existing fixtures directly, eliminating the need to remove ceiling tiles and saving money on new fixture housings and wiring. Upgrading the internal fixture components can reduce your energy usage by as much as 67 percent. We can also assist in the recycling of the outdated lighting fixtures.
Graybar Flint is a pillar of what Graybar stands for as a whole, and why we are still a leading commercial and industrial lighting supplier on this continent.
