Sonepar company Crawford Electric Supply is opening a new 12,000-square-foot “open-concept” branch in Texas, the company announced.
The new location, 23 miles from Austin, includes combined warehouse and counter space to allow customers to self-serve when picking material, Crawford said.
Customers can walk the aisles to shop more than 2,600 SKUs of inventory and reduce time spent waiting to pick up their material. The new branch receives daily material shipments from the nearby 90,000-square-foot Austin facility.
Located at 1501 Volta Drive in Cedar Park, Texas, the branch is “well equipped to service the local residential and commercial markets,” Crawford said.
The new location will be led by Tyler Kuenast, a Texas A&M graduate with a degree in Industrial Distribution and more than five years of experience.
“This area is rapidly growing, and I am excited to have the opportunity to kick-off the self-service model for Crawford,” Kuenast said. “I am confident it will elevate our customers’ experience and alleviate operational bottlenecks caused by wait times. We are ready to welcome customers today, but our grand opening is scheduled for April 2022.”
