When Mayer Electric Supply Co., Birmingham, Ala., recently celebrated the opening of its new Dothan, Ala., branch, more than 500 customers, guests, and city dignitaries attended the event. “This event and the big turnout was a terrific example of Mayer's good reputation in Dothan and the relationships that our folks enjoy with customers, manufacturers, and city and county officials,” said Jim Summerlin, Mayer's president.

Guests enjoyed a trade show with new products featuring energy-saving technology and labor-saving tools and construction and maintenance materials. More than 50 vendors' products were on display.

Dale Sanders, Mayer's Gulf Coast division manager, is especially pleased with the easy accessibility of the new location. “This new facility being entirely under one roof provides faster and more efficient receiving, order assembly, and shipping operations,” he says. “And the addition of a large outdoor storage area adds inventory space that our associates and customers appreciate.”
