A Letter to Our Customers…

From Al Stewart
President of Womack Electric Supply…

Harnessing the Power of Positive Thinking & Partnerships

In this issue of The Womack Way newsletter, I wanted to take a moment, introduce myself, and say how honored, and humbled I am to have the opportunity to lead Womack Electric Supply and how excited I am to continue working with all of you to grow, develop, and prosper in the future.

I would be remiss if I did not begin this message by thanking our outgoing president, Burke Herring, for his nearly four decades of service to Womack Electric Supply, our customers, and our industry.  During his tenure, Burke led with honor and the utmost of integrity, building strong foundational relationships with both employees and customers alike.  Burke, we thank you for your service and friendship and wish you all the best in retirement! 

Ours is an exciting industry and, like many of you, my roots run deep in it.  I graduated from East Carolina University in 1986 with a degree in Industrial Technology, Technical Sales.  Before joining Womack, I served for many years as District Manager for Legrand North America.  Many of you know Legrand as a global specialist in electrical and building infrastructures.  For the past twelve years, I have gotten to know many of you, as a District Manager for Womack Electric Supply in the Greensboro, NC region.  I have always found that hands-on experience is a great teacher, and I am thankful to have been a part of the many exciting projects that we worked on together across the spectrum of electrical markets including commercial, industrial, residential, institutional, energy and others. 

I am thankful too for the relationships that we have built over the years and for the trust you have placed in Womack Electric Supply, as your electrical supplier of choice.  We want to continue earning your business each and every day – doing the rights things, at the right time, and in the right way to help you and your company succeed.  Everyone at Womack Electric is committed to your success, understanding that our own success is a direct result of the success of those we serve.  

This is “The Womack Way”, and it means that every product and service we offer comes with something extra. Order a part and we’ll throw in a sales representative who asks questions and makes recommendations to simplify installation, a warehouse team that double checks your order for accuracy and packs it carefully to minimize damage, a delivery driver who goes out of his way to help you unload the right parts in the right place, and a support staff that understands what customers need to make a profit on every job.

No business or endeavor is without challenges.  Living through the past year and a half has taught us that!  But it has also taught us some very valuable lessons.  As we move forward, two beneficial lessons, in particular, come to mind: 

The Power of Positive Thinking

The first lesson is about the “power of positive thinking”.   Positive thinking is an emotional and mental attitude that focuses on the good and expects results that will benefit you.  It’s about anticipating happiness, health, and success.  So essentially training yourself to adopt an abundance mindset and cultivate gratitude for your own successes and those of others.  How important is the power of positive thinking? It can make or break an individual.  Your thoughts affect your actions and your actions, in turn, translate into whether or not you succeed in your field. At Womack, we are positively excited about what the future can hold for you and your business, and we want to celebrate your successes with you. 

Together We Are Stronger

The second lesson is the realization that “together we are stronger”.   Having a partner to turn to for help, when it is needed most, is of utmost importance.   At Womack, we want to be that partner for you and your business. We want to know the things about your business that keep you up at night.    

We don’t stop at supplying products.  Our customers have asked us to help them with everything from marketing, web sites to inventory and bookkeeping.  As a result, we’ve developed a powerful set of business tools, services and programs that give our partners an edge.  As we learn more about your business, we learn how to make your job easier and your business more efficient. We want you to think of your relationship with us as “The Womack Advantage”  –  a partnership that allows you to focus on business while we take care of everything else.

In closing, I again thank you for the privilege of serving you and for your continued business and partnership.  I give you a guarantee that we will always view the challenges we face together as opportunities and as a way that Womack Electric Supply can create a deeper partnership with you, helping you with product and service solutions and becoming an integral part of your continued success.  Our drive to get better –  to serve you better – is the foundation of The Womack Way. After all, The Womack Way isn’t really about Womack Electric Supply at all. It’s about you and your success, and that will never change.

Sincerely,

Al Stewart
President
