The Largest Company You've Never Heard Of

Consolidated Electrical Distributors is a nationwide network of locations that, like the name sounds, consolidate to form CED. We go to market under a variety of names, retaining the local support and service our customers expect while providing the resources and backing of one of the largest electrical distributors in the country.

Who We Are

Our humble beginnings shaped the company we’ve become. We started with two locations in 1957, and we’ve worked hard to keep CED as local as possible. Now, with over 700 locations CED has become one of the largest electrical distributors in the country.

That local touch is why we put power directly into the hands of managers at each of our locations across the country, giving them the chance to make decisions best aligned with their city, clientele and unique circumstances. Although each location operates like a small business, CED supports each of our locations with the resources, funding and tools to help them grow—they may have different names and serve different areas, but every location’s success is important to the future of CED. With an overarching culture based in respect for our people, service, integrity, and reliability, CED is a financially sound, stable company with great opportunity for career growth.

The Credit Office

Each credit manager and their team supports a number of locations, making local decisions while managing the risk makeup of a larger portfolio. Our credit teams are supported in their decisions, which has driven superior results for CED and allowed us to maintain our stability through many economic situations.

The people and culture at CED are what make CED great. CED’s business model is very decentralized and allows the local location or credit personnel to collaborate to make decisions that are best for the business.
