Consolidated Electrical Distributors opens new storefront in Gilford

GILFORD — Citing an opportunity to develop new business in northern New England and central New Hampshire, Consolidated Electrical Distributors has recently leased space in a Route 11 strip mall.

Under a five-year lease, Consolidated Electrical Distributors (CED) will occupy 8,100 square feet in the former State of New Hampshire Liquor Store location on Old Lake Shore Road, adjacent to the movie theater. CED serves the commercial, industrial and retail markets in the central and northern New Hampshire regions, including Belknap, Carroll, Coos and eastern Grafton counties.

With several vehicles and a staff of approximately seven people, Consolidated Electrical is poised to embrace a demanding and rebounding new building and renovation marketplace. CED is the exclusive area distributor of Square D products, a preeminent American manufacturer of electrical controls and distributors.

According to General Manager Mike Mains, the contractors in the area have extremely tight schedules and meeting their delivery demands is key to CED's success.

"Our customers are contractors who are working on tight deadlines. Time is money," said Mains. "Only CED can provide delivery of electrical supplies the same day the order is placed. Same-day service is what sets us apart from other wholesale distributors. Our mission is to simply delivering the best products in a more timely manner."

Mains, who has been with the company for 17 years, had been manager of the firm's Dover location. A key individual in the selection of the new space, Mains says location was the driving factor for the CED opening in the Gilford location. "This spot has a lot going for it. Being located right off the by-pass with ample parking, the Gilford location gives our customers quick and easy access to the building and the needed items."

Kevin Sullivan of Weeks Associates Commercial Realtors, brokered the deal for CED, with Summit Realty Partners of Lexington, MA, representing the building's owner. The managing broker for Summit Realty was Frank Normandin, who grew up in Laconia and retains local family and business connections in the Lakes Region area.
