Summit Electric Supply starts Gonzales construction

Summit Electric Supply has begun construction on a facility at 3348 S. Burnside in Gonzales.

The facility will include 50,000 square feet of warehouse space — nearly twice the capacity of Summit’s current Gonzales location on West Orice Roth Road.

The move also allows Summit to expand its counter sales area, offer additional customer service support and broaden its scope of work.

“We are committed to the growth of the city of Gonzales and that of Ascension Parish,” said Gonzales service center leader Chip Shows.

Summit has serviced residential, commercial and industrial contractors in the Gonzales area since January 2003.

Summit Electric Supply is a privately held, independent electrical distributor headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Founded in 1977, the company operates service centers in 27 U.S. markets and in Dubai, UAE. Summit also has an international sales division and an EP&C division located in Houston, as well as an industrial marine division located in New Orleans.
