El Paso, Texas is home to one of Graybar more than 260 North American locations. Graybar has been established as one of America’s leading commercial and industrial lighting suppliers since 1869, and is today one of the largest employee-owned companies in the country. We employ thousands of hard working men and women at our offices, warehouses and counters.
Cutting energy costs is essential to every commercial building manager in today’s economy. Over 30 percent of energy in commercial buildings is wasted. By retrofitting existing buildings and planning new ones to be more efficient from the start, businesses can see a return on investment of up to 45 percent. Improved savings can be seen by using modern lighting control systems, such as intelligent control boards, occupancy sensors, manual and daylight activated dimmer switches, natural daylight sources, and time scheduling.
Utilizing fully integrated lighting that can be controlled building-wide, and intelligently designed natural daylight sources, a new construction project can start life as an environmentally friendly building.
Graybar offers inventory and materials management services to help our customers maximize profits. Keeping supply chains running ensures the smooth operation of projects across the board. We have the experience needed to kit material packages for large operations that require assembly, storage, and shipment of thousands of kits in a single month, as well as smaller single kit installations.
When overhauling electrical systems, recycling the old components is a key part of a complete retrofit. The lighting systems of yesteryear contain some very harmful materials such as mercury. Federal guidelines mandate very specific disposal procedures regarding these materials, and Graybar El Paso is an example to others on proper recycling practices.
