With headquarters in Somerville, Mass., Independent Electric Supply relocated its Hudson, N.H., branch to a new 10,000-square-foot facility to give customers more convenient access to the store.

The family-owned electrical distributor was founded in 1992 with a single location, a few employees, one truck and minimal inventory. In less than 15 years, the company has grown to four locations in three states (Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine) with deep inventory, a fleet of trucks and more than 70 employees.

Independent's CEO, William “Skip” Gray (to the right of McLaughlin), and members of the Hudson Chamber of Commerce also attended the grand-opening event in February.
