What Our Rep Members Do
NEMRA reps spend their day marketing your products to all verticals within the electrical industry, with the purpose of lending their knowledge of product, local markets and experience to the electrical community. Reps are the first point of contact for product, service and technical support. They advocate customer issues with their manufacturers and distributors to ensure that the customer is receiving exactly what they are demanding. They are the experts that the end-users and consultants rely upon as they execute their work. NEMRA reps are the window to the marketplace and the local, trusted resource. Put simply, our reps are the conduit between the manufacturers and the local market, they understand the needs and pain points due to their long-standing connections and synergistic product offerings.
