Anixter International Inc. will be opening a customized Houston flagship facility in Jersey Village, located near the Beltway 8 and 290 interchange.

Scheduled to open in early 2017, the 200,000-sq.-ft. Anixter location will enable the company to stock a comprehensive product portfolio spanning across electrical, data and security solutions and will showcase its full range of value-added services, the company reported. In addition to the warehouse facility, a team of on-site sales and technical experts will be available to help customers with product, technology and solution questions covering electrical, electronic, data, enterprise and security applications. 

The location is being designed to include a solutions briefing center, where customers can receive hands-on product evaluation and training and engage with technical specialists for product and solution selection. 

Chris Blakeslee, Anixter’s North American senior vice president, electrical and electronic solutions (EES), said, “Our new location in Houston will allow us to fully execute our value proposition for customers in the Houston market. Our range of products, covering every aspect of electrical, data and security installations is the broadest in the industry, and will result in a true one-stop shopping experience. It also represents our continued enthusiasm and commitment to our suppliers and customers.” 

Dirk Naylor, Anixter’s North American senior vice president, network & security solutions, said, “To collocate with our EES salespeople will create an environment that makes it easier to provide our customers with broader value and more relevant business solutions. Hosting all of the resources for customer support in one location will make Anixter a more effective business partner in the Houston marketplace, and will allow our customers to better leverage our Supply Chain Solutions and technical expertise.”
