Lavergne, Tenn.-based Stuart C. Irby Co., a subsidiary of Sonepar USA, began its 20th anniversary celebration with "The Electrified Tour," a tour of the company’s new 100,000-square-foot regional distribution center and four Irby Electric Express locations. Sonepar USA's distributors and executives were joined by the Irby staff in welcoming more than 800 of Irby's key customers and more than 70 supporting vendor partners.

"’The Electrified Tour’ has increased our overall contractor, commercial, industrial, and utility presence in the middle Tennessee area," says Michael C. Wigton, Irby president. "While we expect to introduce new value-added capabilities establishing Irby as the partner of choice, our new facilities will allow us to expand our product and service offering to create greater value for our customers."
