A Look Inside North Coast Electric’s New CDC

April 6, 2023
North Coast's executive team believe the new CDC will help the company reach its goal of $1 billion in sales by 2026.

North Coast Electric recently opened a 285,000-sq-ft electrical products distribution CDC facility in Auburn, WA.

The company said in the press release that the facility will support its ambitious growth plans and marks the most recent illustration of the $2 billion worldwide investment by Sonepar in supply chain automation.

Cory McCulloch, president of North Coast Electric said in the release, “Our vision at North Coast is to be the most customer-centric electrical distributor in the geographies we serve. We plan on adding three to five new density locations per year over the next couple of years, increasing our footprint from 42 to 80 locations. The new CDC is the key component to growth, productivity and efficiency along with our strong digital platform.

“This is Sonepar’s transformation in action,” said Rob Taylor, president of Sonepar North America, in the release. “CDC investment will be continuous, with three new CDCs opening across the Sonepar U.S. network this year and many more opening in the following years.”
