Summit Electric Supply Expands in New Orleans Area

NEW ORLEANS – Summit Electric Supply has expanded its presence in the New Orleans area. The electrical distributor’s 32,500-square-foot location at 5601 Caterpillar Point in Harahan, original home of its marine division, has been turned into a full-service branch with electrical products for commercial and industrial customers. The location now offers counter service, complete with Summit’s trademark service guarantees: 

  • 30-second Counter Service Guarantee® that provides a coin worth 5 Summit Bucks®, a $5 credit,  if customers are not served in 30 seconds.
  • 20/20 Will Call Guarantee® that provides a $20 credit if will-call orders are not ready within 20 minutes of being called in.

The location also offers job-site delivery and 24/7 emergency service. The staff of 10 is a unique combination of industry veterans, military veterans and recent college graduates.

“The New Orleans market presented Summit with opportunities that were in line with strategic vendors and market segments,” said W. Damain Kerek, Louisiana Area Manager. “By increasing our footprint, we can support those customers that work across South Louisiana.”

Summit’s 16-member marine division moved to larger facilities at 621 Time Saver Ave. in Harahan. The new 44,000-square-foot space more readily accommodates Summit’s cable braiding machines and provides greater warehouse space for the large inventory of shipboard cable, rig cable and marine electrical devices. The marine division provides electrical products to shipbuilders, rig builders and contractors involved in the construction, maintenance or repair of offshore vessels, offshore drilling rigs and inland vessels across the United States.

Summit has operated in the New Orleans market since 2002.
