Our Mission

Who We Are

We are not just an electrical wholesale. That would be boring. A wholesale will sell you something if you know the part number of what you need.

We view ourselves to be more of an electrical helpdesk. We are here because we want to help people with their projects.

We love problem solving. We love to come up with creative solutions. We enjoy when at the end of the day we have helped somebody make something work better than it did before.

We specialize in getting machines moving. This is what we love and we would love to help you with yours.

We Love to Help People

Getting Solutions Delivered to You, Right Where You Are

What happens when your machine breaks down and you're far from help? Do you know what the problem is, or will you end up taking the wrong part into the city, costing hours or even days of production? How long will it take to get support? Technology can be a big part of providing and supporting amazing tools. A few weeks ago, we had a call from Ethan, who was having an issue with his industrial fans way out in rural Alberta. His equipment was using some tech that he was unfamiliar with, so we helped him out. After talking him through the problem, one of our journeyman electricians wrote a new program for his VFD and emailed it to him. From there, Ethan was able to open the program using an app on his phone and download it wirelessly to his VFD and get his fans going again. Thanks to technology, distance did not prevent us from helping Ethan solve his problem.

At Electram we use current, accessible technology. In addition to automating and increasing the accuracy of our products, it helps us support you across great distances, or wherever you find yourself. In store, in a field, or awkwardly standing on a ladder - we are here to help!

When You Don't Know What You Need

We are more than an electrical wholesale supplier. Wholesales are typically staffed by salesmen who know how get what you ask for off the shelf and sell it to you. The problem comes when you're not sure what you want, or what your equipment really needs. Salesmen won't be able to help you, because they don't have the electrical know-how to understand and solve your problem. This is where Electram is different than the rest. Our sales team is made up of journeymen electricians who like the challenge of finding solutions to new problems. They care about more than part numbers. Instead, they want to understand what you are trying to accomplish, and what it will take to help you succeed.

Thomas was setting up a water business in northern BC. Which is awesome! Building a business is hard work. He had a problem though, and nobody was able to give him a workable solution. All of his equipment needed 3 phase power to work, but in that area of BC, only 1 phase is available. In short, the power company couldn't supply his heavy-duty equipment with what it needed. So Thomas started asking around, and one of his distributors connected him with us. It took some time to figure out what his power requirements were. In the end, we were able to outfit him with two digital converters and a plan for how to distribute his machines between the two in a way that would supply their power needs. Electram believes in working with our customers to find straight forward solutions to complex problems. We focus on building relationships with people and learning about their business. Because, when you succeed, we succeed.
