Graybar, St. Louis, announced the opening of a 5,400-square-foot distribution facility in Hibbing, Minn. The branch's $500,000 inventory, backed by a $1 million inventory in Duluth, Minn., and a $20 million inventory in Minneapolis, gives the distributor nine distribution facilities in Minnesota and more than 250 locations throughout North America.

Graybar Hibbing offers counter and will-call service and local truck deliveries Monday through Friday, with after-normal-business-hours emergency service as needed.

Leading Graybar Hibbing is Branch Supervisor Dave Cimermancic, a 15-year Graybar veteran who transferred from the Graybar Duluth branch.

“With the opening of our new location, Graybar can better serve Northern Minnesota and the surrounding Iron Range mining community,” said Cimermancic. “We are ready to help our customers power and network their facilities, offices and housing with speed, intelligence and efficiency.”
