Talent and Innovation Lead Rexel to Join the ELECTRI Council
As of April 26, 2017
March 7, 2014
Rexel has joined the ranks of ELECTRI Council members at the Founder level.
ELECTRI recently spoke with John Kudlacek, VP – Supplier and Industry Relations, to learn more about this global company and its decision to invest in ELECTRI International.
ELECTRI: Was there a particular factor that led Rexel to make this generous commitment to the Foundation?
Kudlacek: Rexel is well-known for embracing new technologies and encouraging innovation. That’s how we can help our customers grow their businesses more efficiently and profitably. Electrical construction needs a healthy base of strong contractors and proficient employees. Combining talent with quality education creates the level of professionalism that benefits all of our companies.
ELECTRI: Do you see ELECTRI as part of that innovative process?
Kudlacek: Absolutely. Much of our own effort is on planning for innovation, particularly concentrating on energy efficiency. As a major distributor, we continuously search for new opportunities to add to our portfolio and grow our value to customers and shareowners. Our strategy is simple: by helping our customers thrive, we thrive. We are confident that by being actively involved with ELECTRI, both our customers and Rexel will thrive.
Rexel, a global leader in the distribution of electrical supplies and services, serves three main markets: industrial, commercial and residential. The Group operates in 37 countries, has a network of some 2,300 branches, and employs more than 31,000 people. For 2013, Rexel's worldwide sales were over US$18 billion.
