Anixter to Open New State-of-the-Art Facility in Houston

The new flagship facility will be open in early 2017 and include a warehouse and interactive customer service center.

HOUSTON – Anixter Int’l has revealed it will be opening a fully customized flagship facility in Houston, Texas.

The 200,000 square foot facility will house a comprehensive product portfolio spanning across electrical, data and security solutions, as well as showcase its full range of value-added services.

“Our new location in Houston will allow us to fully execute our value proposition for customers in the Houston market. Our range of products, covering every aspect of electrical, data, and security installations is the broadest in the industry, and will result in a true one-stop shopping experience,” says Chris Blakeslee, North American SVP—Electrical and Electronic Solutions.

The facility will also include a team of on-site sales and technical experts who will be available to help customers with product, technology and solution questions.

A ‘Solutions Briefing Center’ is being designed, where customers can receive hands-on product evaluation and training and engage with technical specialists for product and solution selection.

“To collocate with our EES salespeople will create an environment that makes it easier to provide our customers with broader value and more relevant business solutions,” says Dirk Naylor, North American SVP—Network & Security Solutions. “Hosting all of the resources for customer support in one location will make Anixter a more effective business partner in the Houston marketplace, and will allow our customers to better leverage our Supply Chain Solutions and technical expertise.”

Anixter is also promoting Greg Roth, former Regional Vice President for Anixter’s EES business in central Florida, to the company’s Vice President of Sales. Roth has over 25 years of electrical wholesale distribution experience.
