St. Louis-based Graybar recently opened a 12,000 square-foot distribution facility in Gulfport, Miss. The $1.5 million branch inventory is backed by a $19 million inventory in the Austell, Ga., regional distribution center.

With the addition of the Gulfport facility, the company now has 64 locations throughout the Southeast. “With the opening of our new location, Graybar can better serve the city of Gulfport and the surrounding coastal region,” says Chris Nichols, branch supervisor. “We are ready to help our customers power and network their facilities, offices, and housing with speed, intelligence, and efficiency.”
