Graybar Syracuse is one of our more than 260 North American locations, and a leading commercial and industrial lighting supplier, stocking and delivering thousands of state-of-the-art electrical supplies produced by hundreds of top-line manufacturers such as GE, Philips, Schneider Electric and Acuity Brands.
Founded in 1869, Graybar has become a Fortune 500 company, and one of the largest employee owned companies in the United States. Employing thousands of men and women at our offices, warehouses, distribution centers, and counters, we have the presence and stability of a big company combined with the integrity and genuine friendliness of a neighborhood business.
Perhaps the most important thing we do at Graybar is the implementation of “smart” buildings. These buildings are far more than just a trend, they are investments in the future. At the heart of our intelligent facilities is an infrastructure of networked lighting, communications, HVAC and security systems operating in unison from a centralized control system. With our help, you can control, monitor, report on, and ultimately reduce the cost of operating your buildings. On average, our customers see a return on investment for an intelligent building project between 17 and 45 percent in as little as two years. These upgrades have also been shown to improve productivity and safety.
Whether you have existing buildings in need of upgrading or an entirely new set of construction projects, Graybar can help you plan and install a building wide system that saves money and is easy to manage and maintain. Most of our electrical supplies are compatible with existing fixture housings and can install in minutes. With a combination of occupancy sensors, manual and light activated dimmer switches, and time scheduling, our upgrades can yield savings of as much as 67 percent.
While newer electrical supplies are more energy efficient and environmentally friendly than ever, the lighting waste of yesteryear still contains harmful materials like mercury. Federal regulations require proper management of this waste, and failure to comply can have some nasty consequences. Graybar Syracuse, as a branch of the country’s leading commercial and industrial lighting supplier, stands ready to assist with the recycling of your old lighting materials.
