This quote is from the January 1964 issue of Electrical Wholesaling: "Data processing has got that 'here to stay' look for the electrical distributing industry. Manufacturers of computers recognize that sales to small to medium-sized business represents exactly half of their annual $4 billion-plus volume. Wholesale distributors...are now and will continue to be a prime target for the sale of this new equipment."

About the Author

Doug Chandler | Senior Staff Writer

Doug has been reporting and writing on the electrical industry for Electrical Wholesaling and Electrical Marketing since 1992 and still finds the industry’s evolution and the characters who inhabit its companies endlessly fascinating. That was true even before e-commerce, LED lighting and distributed generation began to disrupt so many of the electrical industry’s traditional practices.

Doug earned a BA in English Literature from the University of Kansas after spending a few years in KU’s William Allen White School of Journalism, then deciding he absolutely did not want to be a journalist. In the company of his wife, two kids, two dogs and two cats, he spends a lot of time in the garden and the kitchen – growing food, cooking, brewing beer – and helping to run the family coffee shop.
