Jobsite boxes, carts or clamshells put material in close proximity to the installation point. These heavy-duty containers can be easily wheeled to a job site. At the end of the day, containers can be secured so that material is there when production continues. Replenishment arrives as scheduled and all waste is removed when new material arrives.
Point of Use Systems
WESCO’s broad-based Point of Sale service solutions offer automated replenishment, ordering and tracking of your commonly purchased items. Material procurement costs are reduced because direct purchases are ordered and tracked according to your job accounting designations.
Pre-package multiple electrical or related components into one kit designed to ensure consistency and accuracy in situations where construction is repetitive. Examples include hotels, dormitories or hospitals. Kitting streamlines ordering processes and increases customer efficiency through reduced errors and costs.
Product lines with prefabricated solutions consist of assemblies of various components to create part of an entire electrical infrastructure. They can include light fixture brackets, rough-in electrical systems, power and data communications box assemblies, prewired raceways, conduit and large pipe bends, component assemblies, and box supports for concrete pours.
Kit and Staged-and-Stored Lighting
This service increases the efficiency of lighting installations for a contractor. We manage fragile shipments, repackage components that need to be prepped for installation, and synchronize lighting shipments to arrive on time.
