Mayer Success with GAINS

Increasing efficiency and embracing automation to boost customer service and lower costs.

Company Overview

Mayer is one of the nation’s largest wholesale distributors of electrical products and equipment, connected solutions, lighting, digital tools, power distribution, and automation & control systems. Mayer serves contractors, industrials, OEMs, integrators, institutions, government entities, utility providers, commercial businesses, and residential customers through its 68 branch locations in 12 states.
