Reading Time: 2 minutes

[Apex, North Carolina] – Located in the Research Triangle along major state and U.S. highways, Apex is a growing community that supports more local businesses every year. Rated as the #1 Fastest-Growing Suburb in the United States by Realtor.com, Apex is living up to the city motto “The Peak of Good Living” as it maintains its small-town charm in the face of heavy development.

“Apex was the perfect choice,” said Branch Manager Qwon Reid. “It sits in the center of where our largest contractors and potential contractors are situated.”

A five-year CES veteran, Qwon has served as a Key Accounts Manager and the Lead Projects Manager in the first-ever Raleigh Region Projects Department. With 29 years of electrical distribution experience, Qwon started out as many people do, working his way up from delivery and warehouse worker to eventually managing a branch of his own.

At 10,000 square feet, the Apex branch also includes a 2,500-square-foot training facility. The large branch size allows the store to build their inventory around local needs that include multiple markets within the industry, such as residential, commercial, industrial, wastewater, and HVAC. This latest location is also a special one; it was built utilizing a new layout fashioned by CES Marketing and the vision of Raleigh Central District’s management.

“Our store is appealing to the eye,” said Qwon. “The counter area is set up to give customers an opportunity to browse and feel comfortable shopping. We get to showcase our products and strike up conversations about what we sell and what CES has to offer.”

Store FrontWith more than 30 years of experience in the commercial, industrial, and residential electrical industries, Qwon’s team takes a customer-focused approach as they serve businesses around Apex. The on-site training facility will allow Qwon’s team and other CES groups, including inside and outside salespeople and management, to stay well-trained and ready to handle whatever comes their way.

“We have a great mix of talent that is customer-first driven. We believe in repeat business and building lasting customer relationships with common goals in mind.”
