We are the premier distributor for factory automation.
CED began in 1957 as The Electrical Corporation in San Francisco. Since the beginning we have always believed in our policy of Service, Integrity, Reliability. Columbia Electric Supply-Columbia Division serves the automation and electrical needs of Washington, Oregon and Idaho. Even though we have 600+ locations nation wide, we still do business on individual needs of each customer. Our decision makers and our inventories are local so that you can get the service you need, when you need it.
We are the Authorized distributors of Rockwell Automation and Encompass Partner products. Together with Rockwell Automation, Columbia Electric Supply provide one of North America's largest stocking capabilities combined with the most advanced integrated architecture in factory and process automation.
Every product from the leading brands in electrical connectivity and construction is our business. Our inside sales professionals can find what you need today. If we don't stock it, we can ship it factory direct to you!
