Who We Are

For over 50 years, The National Electrical Manufacturers Representative Association (NEMRA®) has successfully served the needs of the electrical industry through independent sales and marketing professionals who share an unbridled enthusiasm and commitment to the electrical industry and to the rep-manufacturer method of marketing.

NEMRA® is home to hundreds of Rep Agency Members who are independent professional providers of field-level sales and marketing services. They typically handle a portfolio of related but noncompetitive product lines, working under a contractual arrangement within a defined geographic region, and on an exclusive basis within their assigned field of responsibility.

Because of the interdependent relationship between manufacturers and representatives, NEMRA® is also committed to and home to hundreds of Manufacturers who recognize the value of the rep-manufacturer method of going to market and support this decision by being a member of NEMRA. Our Manufacturer Members have found that hiring independent, commission based, NEMRA Reps provide better, faster and more stable and predictable results for their companies in addition to providing outstanding support to their customers.

We get to make reps and manufacturers proud of how they go to market.
