Canadian Electrical Wholesaler

Nov 21, 2018

ElectrozadElectrozad has enhanced its process solution capabilities by creating and launching a process business unit serving customers in the food and beverage, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, water/wastewater, and biotechnology verticals.

“The creation of this strategic unit provides the ability for a heightened focus on strategies, partnerships, and solutions for our customers specific to this space,” says William C. Smith, President of Electrozad Supply Company. “It will enable our team to be more creative and innovative as we continue to expand this business.” 

As the authorized distributor for Rockwell Automation, Electrozad first introduced its customers to the modern distributed control system (DCS) with the launch of Rockwell’s PlantPAx system in 2008. The system combines the plant-wide control technologies and unmatched scalability of Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture with the core capabilities expected in a world-class distributed control system (DCS). Since the platform’s release, it has continually evolved and expanded. 

In 2016, Electrozad Supply became an authorized channel partner of Endress+Hauser, a global leader in process measurement and instrumentation. Electrozad Supply now can provide its process automation customers with new cost saving opportunities through the enhanced integration of Endress+Hauser’s measurement technology with the Rockwell Automation platform. Pre-tested and validated designs from Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser help reduce costs associated with bringing new measuring points or a new production line into the manufacturing facility. It also minimizes the risk of adopting new technology. 

Most recently, an essential partnership has been signed with Samson Controls to further Electrozad’s offering as a complete process solutions supplier. Samson develops and manufactures process control solutions, including valves, actuators, and accessories. 

Along with the additional process vendors, Electrozad has expanded their dedicated personnel by adding a Process and Solutions Specialist position to lead the technical aspects of the business. Graeme Weaver has brought an extensive design background to the Electrozad team, advancing the value of early involvement and continued engagement by the company in a process project.

I think it was Bill Gates who said the Internet will not have an effect on society short term, but will have a profound effect on us long term. 

Long term versus short term fascinates me. Making the call for one over the other can determine the success (or failure) of companies today. 

Using Bill Gates’ long-term Internet effect example, means that business decisions about the Internet will not necessarily show short-term gain, but will show “profound” gain in the long term.

CEW 3 Perspective 400

We often learn how to look forward by first looking back, or at the very least we realize that despite our best efforts we have not truly advanced quite so much as we had thought. Sure, technology is rapidly advancing. That’s beyond question. But what about our approach to selling it? Have we changed that much in the last 20, 40, 60 years? Inevitably there have been advances and changes in marketing, the Internet causing the biggest shift, but many of the concerns and directives that have driven the distribution and marketing of industrial electrical products remain, or at least planted the roots of the concerns of manufacturers and distributors today. 

To gain perspective of the perceptions and directions of electrical product distribution in 1960, we turn to Edwin H. Lewis. In 1960 Lewis published “The Distribution of Industrial Electrical Products” in the Journal of Marketing.

To fully define electrical product distribution in 1960, Lewis broke his study into several categories. We will follow his direction and provide his insights on the industry in each of the categories he identified.
