In 1980 Promark was formed as a specialised electrical wholesale company to sell control gear using qualified staff supported by full technical backup, this was a unique approach to the market at that time. The company was founded on the principal: “to be the leader in bringing the best possible trading experience to clients so they would want to come back day after day to have their requirements meet”. The markets experience was so good that Promark quickly expanded to become a fully-fledged electrical wholesaler buying out another local opposition wholesaler to become the market leader in the greater Waikato. Then in Feb 1993 Promark was sold to a major independent electrical wholesale group looking to expand into the area.
During this period a sister company Elmark was established to import and sell cable accessories to electrical wholesalers nation wide via commission agents. In Dec 1991 Elmark’s main opposition was bought and the two companies merged under the Electrical Supply Corp name giving the new group an expanded range of products and importantly its own nationwide sales team. Electrical Supply Corp has grown steadily over the years and now offers the most extensive and comprehensive range of leading products and brands and is counted in the top 10 of key preferred suppliers to all electrical wholesale groups nation wide.
Underpinning the team’s efforts to achieve the best in market client experience has been a significant investment in technology. We have an industry first paperless warehousing operation. The website enables anyone to browse the extensive product range, as well as being able to download product catalogues.
Since August 2008 the company has been owned by the NZ owned Tiri Group. Tiri Group comprises of a diverse group of manufacturing and distribution businesses based in New Zealand. Companies in the group include A & G Price, New Zealand Insulators and Masport.
