Time. Money. Convenience.
Construction is a fastest-paced, challenging, and fiercely competitive industry where time, money, and convenience are often in short supply. Of course you need the right product, at the right time, at the right price — just like everyone else. But advances in technology, new legislation, and a renewed emphasis on energy conservation, and the continued pressure to do more with less demand more out of you than ever before. You need:
- Product knowledge to help you keep up-to-date —our consultants get ongoing manufacturer training and industry training and they’re happy to share it with you!
- Industry knowledge to help you spot opportunities and forecast growth areas — our management attends industry events, conferences and trade shows to keep you in-the-know.
- Services that fit your needs, today and tomorrow —we’re always looking for new ways to help you grow and improve your business.
According to NECA data, 42% of an electrical contractor’s revenue is labor. And about 40% of that labor is spent handling materials — receiving, unpacking, storing, assembling, relocating. Wouldn’t you rather have your team doing the work they were trained to do? Following are a few services we provide to save you time and labor, and make your job a little easier.
Job Site Cart Program: Storage & Inventory Management
Moving materials from room to room and floor to floor has never been easier!
Your 31” wide cart will be stocked with the products you use every day—then replenished weekly (or as needed) by Dominion staff who will scan bar codes to ensure accuracy. Every time we visit to check stock, we’ll also check with your foreman or project manager to address any special needs or quantity adjustments.
- No more stopping work to place orders
- No more downtime due to missing product
- No more lost time because someone forgot to place an order
- Carts roll easily from room to room, and wheels lock in place for safety
- Automated system sends SKUs electronically, ensuring accuracy
Floor-to-Floor Delivery: product where you need it
The right product, at the right time, at the right price — in the right place!
When your crew is working on multiple floors, they can spend a lot of time breaking down materials, waiting for elevators, and generally moving materials around. You’ll save time and labor when you use our Floor-to-Floor Delivery Services. We’ll separate your materials for each floor, and deliver them on skids or in carts to each floor. For more information, contact your sales representative.
DIRECt-To-STOCK: let us be your warehouse
Order what you need; Store it in our warehouse
You know what materials you need for a job, but it's not always practical to keep them on site. We can store them for you in our secure warehouse, then deliver them as needed to your job site. So you get the supplies and materials you need, when you need them, with just a phone call or a quick pickup.
VMI: Vendor managed inventory
easily keeps You Stocked, and up and running
