Harris Electric Supply and UtiliCor now operating as Border States Electric in Tennessee

April 15, 2014

Border States Electric branches in Tennessee have operated until recently under the trade names Harris Electric Supply and UtiliCor. April 1, all Harris Electric Supply and UtiliCor branches changed their name to Border States Electric. Additionally, the Nashville UtiliCor branch relocated to the Harris Electric Supply (Wedgewood) facility in February.

“While their legacy names bring a great history of quality and integrity, having different names in the market creates confusion,” said Tammy Miller, CEO of the Fargo, N.D.-based company. “Border States is an employee-owned company and is known for service excellence. The transition from the Harris Electric Supply and UtiliCor names to Border States will clear confusion for customers, vendors and the community and help us to better serve our customers with a consistent brand.”
