In the fast-paced electrical distribution industry, few stories are as inspiring as how ATI Electrical came to be. In Electrical Wholesaling’s latest podcast, Greg shares what influenced him to found ATI and what sets our company apart from other electrical distributors. Our mission has always revolved around offering our customers premium portable power equipment and providing customer service that makes you feel like family.

When partnering with our customers, we take a service-first approach to help pair you with the best equipment for your application. From providing you with accurate quotes and lead times to ensuring on-time delivery of your order, we prioritize helping you succeed at each of your projects. In this article, we’ll provide you with an overview of Greg’s interview with EW to help you gain a deeper understanding of ATI’s core values and our role in shaping the electrical distribution landscape.

Foundations of Electrical Supply

Greg’s start in the electrical supply industry began by studying Industrial Distribution at Texas A&M University. Upon graduating, he landed his first job as a salesman at an electrical supplies manufacturing company. It didn’t take Greg long to learn that he enjoyed working with all of the people and customers that make up this industry, and that he wanted to be a part of this sector long-term.

After 14 years of working in various sales and management roles, Greg noticed a gap in the market that left hundreds of customers unable to find the power solutions necessary to complete their projects. Greg became determined to close this gap by offering customers a unique mix of portable power products so that they always have access to the equipment they need, when they need it most. In 2004, he founded ATI Electrical Supply with the goal of creating a place where both employees and customers can thrive.

Greg carefully selected Las Vegas, Nevada to be ATI Electrical Supply’s initial headquarters. From this location, we can ship equipment to most customers in the Southwest within 48 hours or less. While we still maintain our Nevada location, our team has expanded and moved our headquarters to Pompano Beach, Florida. Greg chose to open our location in South Florida so that we can provide the area’s booming construction and marine industries with our in-depth variety of portable power products and accessories.

Just like Greg’s vision, our team stays committed to offering you premium power solutions with some of the shortest lead times in the industry. We always keep our inventory stocked with essentials such as Type W Extensions, Camlock Connection Boxes, and SpiderBox Sets that include a 50A Twistlock Cord and Power Distribution Unit. In addition, if you ever need equipment that is not currency offered on the market- just let us know! We have experience working closely with our manufacturing partners to create one-of-a-kind power products.

The ATI Advantage

In Electrical Wholesaling’s latest podcast, Greg defines what truly sets ATI apart from other electrical distributors. So, what makes us stand out from a sea of competitors? Unlike larger corporations that often prioritize sales volume over personalized service, our team emphasizes forging meaningful relationships with our customers. Greg emphasizes the importance of understanding the specific requirements of each customer’s application so that we can offer you a stress-free purchasing experience.

We also shine through our forward-thinking company culture. ATI is constantly working to expand our product offerings while maintaining short lead times and affordable prices. In January of 2024, we merged with Connecticut Electric to offer our customers a wide array of new products and fresh perspectives.

Throughout 2024, we have our sights set on launching plenty of new product lines so that you always have access to the latest and greatest products on the market. In the last month alone, we launched our collection of Quick Connect Switches, G2 Manual Transfer Switch Kits, Shore Power Inlet/Outlet Boxes, and more! Expanding our product offering gives you plenty of opportunities to choose power solutions that meet your needs, budget, and price point.
