The EDA (Electrical Distributors’ Association) is the trade association that protects the interests of wholesale distributors of electro-technical products in the UK.
There are 241 member companies (as at June 2018) ranging in size from businesses running hundreds of branches to those that have just one. In total there are 2,000 outlets throughout Britain and Northern Ireland and, increasingly, these offer online B-2-B services, from which they generate a combined annual turnover of around £4.2 billion.
Our 75 affiliated members , who are mostly market leading manufacturers, are a very important constituent of the EDA. In addition to enjoying many of services offered by the Association, they have frequent access to members and have opportunities to have a say in the development of training or product data standards.
The EDA is proud of the level of engagement of its members and affiliates in the services it offers. These include:
