Canadian Electrical Wholesaler

Dec 17, 2018

City ElectricOn December 11, City Electric Supply (CES) hosted an event for staff, family and vendors in Vaughan, Ontario to celebrate A landmark achievement of raising $100,000 to Make-A-Wish Canada (MAW), an organization that helps grant wishes to kids with life-threatening medial conditions.

Each of CES’ 68 branches were challenged to raise $500 through various fundraising activities all year round, such as the Rope for Hope Challenge, Pie-in-the-Face Contest, Silent Auctions, Charity Car Washes, Bar-B-Qs, etc. Most branches surpassed their target by doubling and tripling the goal amount. Through donations from generous vendors, customers and non-branch staff members, the company was able to collect $50,000, which amount was equally matched by company owner Thomas H. Mackie.

CES’ contribution to MAW will enable the charity to grant 10 children and their families, facing life-threating medical conditions, a wish close to their heart, giving them a reprieve from their hospital stay/visits, ultimately restoring a sense of childhood back to the children and instilling some normalcy in their lives. 

Everyone at the event — 141 adults and 37 kids — gained first-hand insight on MAW’s importance in the life of sick children, such as 16-year-old Stephanie, who was born with Omphalocele, a serious birth defect, where the intestine and other abdominal organs are outside the body. After numerous surgeries and hundreds of invasive treatments, Stephanie has defied all odds. Today, she is a happy young girl whose wish to go to Disneyworld was granted by this incredible charity.

Guests at the event were treated to a banquet dinner (sponsored by Premise LED) and raffle prizes of amazing gifts. The Wish Family was presented with a Dyson Cordless Vacuum Cleaner and gift cards. The young ones at this event enjoyed a free Powerplay Card of arcade games for the entire evening, along with surprise visits from Spiderman, Princess Belle, Star Wars Storm Troopers and jolly-ol’ Santa himself, who handed out $30 Toys R Us gift cards to each child’s delight.

We all are consumers. We all have expectations of quality and service.

When I talk to our customers, I do so with that experience and mindset. If we don’t deliver – we lose. Maybe not immediately, but eventually. It’s as simple as that.

I just lived through a great example of this. Every morning I use our blender. One of the parts broke, and the manufacturer made it quite difficult and cumbersome to get a replacement.

OmnicableOmniCable was founded in 1977 by partners with deep experience in the US electrical marketplace. With their clear understanding of the industry, they were able to identify an opportunity for the founding of a unique company. At the time, there was a disconnect between electrical distributors and electrical wire and cable manufacturers due to a growing demand that needed to be fulfilled under strict timelines.

The nature of the industry required a wide range of product types and configurations on a “just-in-time” basis. As a result, distributors were unable to stock enough cable products to meet the demands of their customers.
