Todd Sprague
Industrial Business Development Manager

With this in mind, Todd Sprague has joined the Womack team as Industrial Business Development Manager. In his new role, Todd will be responsible for overseeing and directing Womack Electric’s mission of being a premier supplier in the Industrial, MRO, and OEM marketplace.

Todd has deep roots and a wealth of knowledge and experience in the industrial electrical distribution marketplace.  He spent 11 years with CED, as manager of one of their Rockwell (Allen-Bradley) locations in California.  The last 13 years, Todd has worked with Electrical Equipment Company, managing the North Carolina sales teams in Greensboro, Raleigh, Charlotte, and Laurinburg.

Speaking about his new role, Todd had this to say, “One of the reasons I am so excited about joining the Womack team is the reputation it has in the market for its exceptional customer service. For me, our industrial teams’ ability to provide exceptional customer service on a consistent basis allows for the development of trust between Womack and our industrial customers and creates an atmosphere where we can build relationships while focusing on the important needs of the industrial customer.  That’s the Womack Way!”

A Few Highlighted Industrial Facility Solutions with Large Impacts

  • Modernization.  Aging facilities often present efficiency and productivity concerns for industrial clients. Between North Carolina and Virginia there are literally hundreds of manufacturing facilities that are over 30 years old.  By leveraging our power and lighting expertise, we can help guide you through the specifications, planning, and management of any modernization project.
  • Internet of Things (IoT).  A bulk of the PLC market is dominated by a few large manufactures, so the ability to “hang” devices from those PLCs in a seamless fashion is critical if a company wants to grow in the automation industry.   Most manufacturers of items like HMIs, Drives, and Smart Sensors have incorporated ethernet capabilities into their products, allowing them to seamlessly communicate with any PLC platform a customer might be standardized on.  Our customers can now find optimal solutions to a control problem by using a variety of best-in-class manufacturers that all communicate with each other.
  • Safety.  Arc flash mitigation and coordination are still hot topics in industrial facilities.  We have several partners, including Eaton, who are industry experts in helping industrial facilities be arc flash compliant.
  • Predictive Maintenance.  Most of our manufacturer partners have introduced “smart” devices into their portfolio of offerings.  Products like motor overloads and circuit breakers are now able to capture real-time data regarding how the load (i.e. motor) is operating and provide insight as to the health of the motor/machine at any given time.  We can help by identifying issues before they become critical events, allowing factory personnel to intervene early and avoid costly downtime.

Central Distribution Center

The Womack Central Distribution Center Gives Customers An Edge …

Womack Electric Supply’s innovative Central Distribution Center (CDC) provides tangible benefits, including improved flexibility, increased accuracy and the overall cost savings associated with a system that works more efficiently.

CDC Group

Located in Youngsville, North Carolina, the CDC is Womack’s warehouse and delivery hub.  The 45,000 square feet of space is dedicated to ensuring that customers have the products they need when they need them.  The CDC also provides behind-the-scenes advantages that help out customers in a big way.  One such example is in-house wire cutting order fulfillment.  Not only do our customers get wire when they need it, but they see additional benefits like cost savings and flexible delivery, thanks to the efficiency of the process.

Organization is critical when it comes to the CDC. Every part that leaves the building is bar-coded and tracked to ensure that the orders arrive on time and that they are correctly packed.  We understand that order accuracy is key to keeping projects on time and on budget.
