Graybar, St. Louis, has expanded its traditional communications and electrical product portfolio to include security and notification products to address the growing demands of communications resellers and electrical contractors.

Graybar has added surveillance cameras, access control devices, and notification systems for distribution throughout its logistics supply network of 250 locations nationwide. Graybar has assembled a substantial product portfolio that includes industry leaders such as Pelco, Keyscan, RCI, Potter Signal, GAI-Tronics, Sensaphone, and Altronix. Graybar also has expanded relationships with several of its legacy suppliers to promote their security offers. Examples include Aiphone, Brady, Edwards Signaling, Lutron, Viking Electronics, and Wheelock.

To meet customer demand and ensure speedy delivery, Graybar will inventory and ship security and notification products through the Graybar zone warehouse logistics network, providing just-in-time delivery for its customers who install these products, primarily communications resellers and electrical contractors.

“With the addition of this new product portfolio, Graybar is working to our customers' advantage by providing a complete offering of low-voltage subsystems used in commercial buildings,” said Al Eddings, vice president-Comm/Data Products, Graybar.

Graybar introduced the security and notification system offer to the marketplace Jan. 12 at the winter BICSI Conference in Orlando, Fla.
