Quarterly Newsletter

Fall 2022
A Message to Our Customers…

From Al Stewart, President of Womack Electric Supply

Time moves fast and it is hard to believe that we are already entering the fourth quarter of 2022. The challenges in our supply chain have continued to persist as we have seen demand outpace supply in several key areas. We are thankful and fortunate to have you, our customers, continue to support our efforts to provide the quality products and services to meet your needs. There is a lot to be said for planning and now more than ever we all must plan much further in advance than we have had to in the past.  We have continued to expand our capacity to stage, store, and kit the products you require to complete your projects. We are very excited to partner with Emerson to provide automation solutions as we continue to expand our industrial product offering. We have invested in renewable energy and EV charging products to further diversify our product offering. We are committed to being a partner you can count on and will provide our best effort daily to meet your demands. We appreciate your business and are very grateful for the opportunities that you provide us.

Thank You,

Al Stewart
President, Womack Electric Supply
