The employee owners of Stoneway Electric Supply, Spokane, Wash., celebrated the grand opening of the company's 16th location in March with a gathering at the company's new Bellingham, Wash., facility.

“This branch will allow us to better serve our new and existing customers in Washington's Whatcom, Skagit and Island counties,” said Eric Haines, Stoneway's Western Washington district manager. The Bellingham branch is now managed by Scott Drafs, a 15-year electrical industry veteran and resident of the Bellingham area.

The Grand Opening Event included a trade show supported by over 25 of Stoneway's vendors and over 200 customers. Along with the tradeshow, the event included a catered lunch and prize giveaways. The grand prize winner took home a $1,000 travel voucher.
