Canadian Electrical Wholesaler

 SouthwireCulliton, a mechanical, electrical and HVAC contractor in Southern Ontario, has been named Southwire’s “2013 SIMpull Solutions Contractor of the Year” for Ontario and Eastern Canada. 

Based in Stratford, ON, Culliton has an impressive record of completing complex projects in healthcare, education, government, commercial and industrial buildings, as well as condominium high-rises. High profile construction projects include the Grand River Hospital Patient Care Development in Kitchener and the Niagara Outlet Collection in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  

“SIMpull Solutions is all about innovation and efficiency,” said Axel Schlumberger, President of Southwire Canada, in presenting the award to Tim Culliton, President and CEO of Culliton. “We wanted to recognize a contractor that has not only embraced SIMpull Solutions but one that really incorporates innovation in everything they do, and never stops looking to evolve their processes that will make them more successful.”  

Southwire is the maker of SIMpull Solutions, an innovative portfolio of products designed to make wire installations easier, safer and more effective than traditional methods. The wire and cable manufacturer’s Canadian headquarters are located in Mississauga, Ontario.

“Culliton has proven to be a strong partner for us,” said Schlumberger. “They don’t just take the solutions as we present them but they work with us, giving us feedback on new products and sometimes they customize it to make it work for them,” said Schlumberger.  “It’s that constant drive to be better, that willingness to take a risk on something new that sets them apart and makes them such a great successful, Canadian business.” 

“We are always looking for ways to improve,” said Tim Culliton, “We have a culture gripped by pride to deliver quality and value to our customer. 

“By using solutions such as SIMpull, we can control and standardize our work better. It’s given us the confidence to go after large scale, fast paced electrical projects, outside of our local home area,” said Culliton.
