The Electrical Distributors’ Association (EDA) has published the results of its inaugural survey into the issues and opportunities facing its electrical wholesaler and manufacturer members.
The survey – “What keeps you awake at night?” – explores broad themes including technology and online sales, supply-side and sales-side issues, employee training and how to attract a pipeline of new talent to the sector, and the key features of supply-chain relationships.
Margaret Fitzsimons, the EDA’s Director, said
“The EDA’s strategy must align with the needs of our members – both wholesalers and manufacturers – and our survey takes the temperature of the sector, giving us a solid launch-pad for further discussions and, most importantly, for action.”
The survey findings represent the views of managers, including senior managers, from over 250 wholesaler and manufacturer organisations.
