As Canada’s leading electrical supply network, IED offers significant benefits to customers and suppliers. We reach right across the country with IED distributors located from coast to coast to coast. Our organization may be national in scope, but inventories and services are localized to match the exact needs of our customers, wherever they may be.

We’re specialists in service with a complete line of electrical products and supplies. IED Distributors can individually or collectively meet the varying demands of clients ranging from local contractors to multi-location national accounts.

We supply only top-quality branded products and will not substitute inferior off-shore alternates.

Our services go beyond just meeting your electrical supply requirements and extend into supply and delivery management, including the following:

  • Inventory management assistance that maximize efficiencies.
  • Cost-tracking reports that provide benchmarks which help customers rationalize usage or identify problems.
  • Energy management analysis, including building surveys, fixture counts, light level verification to meet new code requirements and strategies to reduce power consumption.
  • Light level analysis.
  • Lamp recycling programs.
  • Around the clock emergency service and support systems.
  • Coordinated emergency supply with back-up support from other IED distributors.

In many locations, we provide the convenience of on-line ordering, resulting in:

  • Reduced transaction costs.
  • Reliable, national pricing and consistent processes.
  • Centralized or de-centralized billing options.
  • Consolidated reporting.

All in all, our combined purchasing strengths coupled with our services capabilities translate into lower acquisition costs for our clients, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
