Tri-Ed Favorability Results

By Brian Karas, Published Apr 25, 2017, 12:22pm EDT

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.

5 years ago, if someone told me Anixter would be the one hurting Tri-Ed's reputation, I would have said no way. Strange times...
