Out With the Old, In With the New
[Alabaster, Alabama] – Over the last eight years, Tommy Sharble and Jacob Martin with Metro Electric have been customers of City Electric Supply Alabaster. From small projects to large projects, the branch has been able to take care of every product need.
“Keith Phillips, the branch’s outside sales representative, always makes sure we receive our products at the right price and in a timely manner,” said Sharble.
When Metro Electric was called to work on the JVC building in Cottondale, Alabama, they called Phillips to provide the best solution for new lighting fixtures. Since the building had been purchased three months prior, replacing the lighting in a timely manner was a must.
“Old metal halide needed to be replaced in a building that was over 165,000 square feet,” said Phillips. “It was like a scary house with most of the lighting fixtures not working.”
The branch replaced the old fixtures with 165 320w Keystone Technology Lighting fixtures, which took nearly two weeks.
“Once the fixtures arrived about a week later, it took an entire week to take down the old ones and put up the new ones,” said Phillips.
The only challenge they faced was the short deadline and the lights taking longer to arrive than expected.
“Although we had a time crunch, Keith made sure they had everything for us and even delivered it to the jobsite,” said Sharble. “I am extremely happy with everything he does for us.”
The JVC Building is still a work in progress, but it is estimated to be complete within the next month.
“We have a little more to light on one end that will require possibly 100 additional wall packs to place outside,” said Phillips. “But we are excited to see how far this building has come from the beginning.”
