K/E Electric Supply, Mount Clemens, MI, held a grand re-opening of its Brighton location on Nov. 3. Company employees (affectionately known as Team-K/E) moved the Brighton branch inventory, all shelving and offices equipment into the new location in less than thirty-six hours. Two-dozen employees worked long hard hours on Friday, Sept. 24.
Roughly eighteen staff worked Saturday to complete the move. About a dozen of the Saturday workers stayed overnight in hotels Friday, shortening their drive to the move. Customers were serviced until 9:00 a.m. on Friday morning from the prior location. On Monday the new Brighton location was ready for business, with a little dust.
At the grand re-opening, branch manager Jerry Indra thanked his coworkers for their extra efforts in supporting the move to “his” new location, which he calls “The Biggest Little Branch of Team-K/E”. The new Brighton location has a superior building footprint, with ample acreage to expand on, while being strategically located on a major roadway, adjacent to a popular freeway exit. Next up for the Brighton branch, “Ready, set, go.”
