Inline Electric Supply Co. opened its doors in 1988 in Huntsville, AL with a strategy to be the best source for electrical contractors, installers, commercial, institutional, and industrial customers to purchase their electrical supplies. Inline's goal is to have abundant local stocks at competitive prices and to employ individuals who will offer service that exceeds our customer's expectations.
Since 1988, the electrical store has grown to 14 locations employing over 150 people who serve customers all over the state of Alabama and in southern Tennessee. In addition to the original location in Huntsville, Inline Electric Supply now has locations in Cullman, Jasper, Birmingham, Pelham, Gadsden, Albertville, Trussville, Montgomery, Auburn, Sheffield, Athens, Tuscaloosa and in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Our Huntsville, Cullman, Pelham, Auburn and Montgomery stores also include residential lighting showrooms featuring quality residential lighting products.
In 2012 the owners of Inline sold the company to the employees as an ESOP. Each of Inline's full-time employees now holds partial ownership of the company, and are invested in its continued success. Inline continues to grow and prosper as we serve our customer's needs and continue to strive to be the place our customers come for their electrical supplies, power equipment, tools, and lighting.
The lighting and electrical industry has seen some dramatic change over the past 10 years as LED lighting has been introduced as an energy efficient alternative to traditional incandescent, fluorescent and HID lamps and fixtures. Inline has positioned itself as the LED source, with experts on staff who understand the technology, and are on the lookout for the best deal for their customers. Inline is the only electrical distributor in Alabama to employ lighting certified salespeople who know best how to light your workspace. Every year Inline also hosts the Energy Efficiency Expo which highlights the new energy efficient technology hitting the market.
