Tri-Ed Favorability Results

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Apr 25, 2017

Tri-Ed, owned by Anixter, far outranked Anixter, the lowest ranked company in our distributor favorability series. Still, Anixter's ownership did impact Tri-Ed's ranking and how integrator's perception of Tri-Ed has shifted since the acquisition of Tri-Ed in 2014.

In this report we provide integrator's feedback on Tri-Ed, and where they feel Tri-Ed's advantages are as compared to other distributors, as well as concerns about the outlook for Tri-Ed.
