Ces Savannah Branch 1025

City Electric Supply Expands in Savannah

Dec. 8, 2022

A new branch in Savannah, GA, is the 45th location in Georgia for City Electric Supply (CES).  The branch, which recently underwent a four-month renovation, is CES’s third location in Savannah. 

In a space that was previously a gym, the CES team pictured above renovated and customized the 7,000 sq-ft layout, transforming the building into a sleek-looking counter space and warehouse. The location also features an additional 6,400 square-foot pipe yard behind the warehouse. 

“We already have several branches in Savannah, and this one is in a new area of town for CES,” said Robert Haney, CES regional manager, in the press release. “We are excited for the opportunity to be here and help the Savannah customer base with even more of their electrical needs.” 

“My team and I did a lot of the work ourselves, with the help of our district manager,” said Branch Manager Ronald Roach in the press release. “We spent time putting up the shelves where we wanted them. We did all of the painting and even some demolitions. Everything came together just in time before we opened up.” 

The branch team has a unique and versatile background ranging from aircraft interiors to design. This CES branch reportedly is unique in its own way, too, as the only supply house in this area of Savannah. The location will also sell plumbing and HVAC equipment.

It sounds like the branch is in a unique neighborhood, and Roach says some neighbors have already come in for a visit. “Our location has sidewalks in front of it, with a mall on one side of us and residential communities on the other. One family came in to say hello just because her kids were curious about what was on our shelves,” he said. 

With over 12 years of experience in management and seven in electrical management, Roach said in the press release that he is excited to begin his journey at CES, with two team members that he knew from previous jobs. “When I decided to come on board with CES, I was at a point in my career where I could either challenge myself or be still,” said Roach. “I wanted to challenge myself, and I wanted my team members to have challenges as well. We are going to grow here, and I am excited to be here, running this location.”

It's been a busy year of branch expansion for CES. According to a LinkedIn post, the company opened 20 branches and hired 1,400 employees in 2022. Twenty of its branches celebrated their 25th anniversaries this year. CES now employs more than 3,000 people in over 500 branches across the U.S. The company is now ranked #7 on  EW's 2022 Top 150 ranking.
