PORTSMOUTH, NH – United Electric, a leading Mid-Atlantic distributor serving contractor and industrial facilities in southern New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and the District of Columbia, and a leading IMARK member, has joined over 50 manufacturers / brands, national chains and leading independent distributors in endorsing NEMRA’s POS Minimum Reporting Standards.
According to George Vorwick, President and CEO of United Electric and the current chairman of NAED, “Endorsing, and more importantly using, the NEMRA POS standards makes sense. Our reps deserve to be appropriately compensated for the work they do to support us and the NEMRA standards help us streamline reporting processes, enabling our relationships with our suppliers to be more transparent, productive and efficient. One reporting process will enable us to share this information more readily with our key suppliers.”
Vorwick further commented that “We’re also looking forward to participating with suppliers who are participating in NEMRA’s POS Connection which will enable us to send one file to a centralized source for dissemination of the information to our suppliers. This was a great idea and will help us simplify the POS process.”
Jim Johnson, President of NEMRA, commented “United Electric is known as a leader in the electrical industry and George is one of the most progressive CEOs in the industry. His vision to drive costs out of the business is well known, as is his advocacy of ‘doing the right thing’. On behalf of the reps in the MidAltantic area, we appreciate United’s support and his commitment to further accelerate the process by participating in the POS Connection this fall.”
