Inline Electric Supply has done business in the Athens community since the founding of our first store in Huntsville in 1988. Our Athens store did not open until 2017, but in many ways it embodies what we want each of our Inline locations to be. With a great sales team, focused on commercial and industrial contractors on one side, but with easy access to the showroom and our residential focused business on the other, the Athens branch is a model to follow.
Before the building was purchased by Inline Electric Supply, our Athens locations was a historic skating rink "Interskate" with a lot of history and memories built in the community. Inline wanted to preserve some of that history, and local flare, which is why a portion of the old skating rink was saved and incorporated into the lighting showroom. Many of our Athens employees live and grew up in the Athens community, and were pleased to save part of the historic property.
Inline Athens is a great branch for residential and commercial contractors, with a small, but growing industrial base. The store also has a first class lighting showroom, which helps our residential customers make informed decisions about the fixtures they want in their house. Our showroom managers are always looking for the newest styles of lighting and decor, at every price point.
Like other Inline branches, Inline Athens has a wide range of LED lamps and fixtures, and knowledgeable sales associates who know what our customers are looking for. Inline is the only commercial lighting supplier in Alabama that employs lighting certified professionals. We partner closely with our lighting suppliers to stock only the commercial lighting fixtures that are right for our customers, and their needs.
In commercial facilities, lighting often accounts for 25% or more of a facilities' total energy use. LED lighting has been improving, and many businesses who have invested in LED commercial lighting have seen those costs reduced by upwards of 60%. By changing out old lamps and ballasts in exchange for new LEDs, commercial buildings see efficiency and lighting quality improve. Many of the products Inline sells install into the existing fixture housings, making installation affordable and quick. WE also sell replacement and new installation fixtures. The biggest cost savings from an LED commercial lighting upgrade is the savings experienced by reduced maintenance cost. LED light bulbs and LED lighting fixtures can last up to 25 times longer than incandescent fixtures. That means less man hours changing fixtures, and more hours working in optimal conditions!
