A Brief History of Our World

World Electric Supply was started in 1999 in North Miami Beach with one location. Since then we have expanded to 16 locations throughout Florida and Georgia. If you need it, we more than likely have it in stock at one of our many facilities, ready to be delivered, when and where you specify.

Strength in Numbers

As strong as World Electric is in each of its given sales territories, the core foundation is even more impressive. As a part of the Global Company Sonepar, our capabilities extend well beyond our immediate geographical areas. Sonepar USA provides their operating companies with corporate support to help them make decisions every day based on their regional needs. Leveraging our strong global resource base, but retaining our family-oriented values and local autonomy, this structure allows us to always focus on the customer - our first priority.

Specialization - Not Generalization

Understanding that all customers are not the same and trying to please everyone with a single resource is frustrating, if not impossible. That's why at World Electric we have incorporated a team of specialists in their respective fields to assist you in product choices. From lighting layout and design, or selecting the right tool for the job, to complicated engineering tasks, we have you covered. As factory authorized distributors for all products we carry, service is just a phone call away.

Facilities that Make Sense

Each and every one of our location has been built-out and designed with the mind set of "Doing it right the first time." We work with our customers, and take into consideration what they need and require in a supplier. We realize having the products you need in stock is important. We build full size facilities that can handle your everyday needs in product availability, and people resources. Our staff of professionals are always on hand to assist you and ensure your satisfaction with each and every purchase. This is our way of saying, "Thank You For Your Business."

Energy - Managing & Conserving

Everyday we are reminded of the rising costs related to energy. With each rate increase imposed by the utility companies, we watch as our daily operating costs rise. These costs translate into unexpected expenses, and affect each facility with a negative financial impact. Let our specialists help you find products and explore ideas that can help reduce, if not eliminate these costs. We keep a staff of trained professionals that are current on new technologies that will help to keep your facility operating in the most efficient manner possible. Something as simple as advice on choosing the correct lighting products, or as detailed as a thorough energy audit, we can help you save and conserve.
